Well I called the  holistic vet and the receptionist was WONDERFUL. She gave me all the info without me really asking. I told her about what happened with Dilbert and she said that they should have sent us to the emergency right away.  She told me all about the titer testing, and she said that they only vaccinate if it is absolutly necessary and if needed then it is done over a span of time. So I had a great talk with her and am excited to meet the vet and ask all the questions I have about Raw diet and supplements ect. And we get a whole 30 mins with the vet. I am so used to the 10-15 min vaccinate then out the door all for $80.00.

Thanks.
They are more expensive, but cost doesn't matter to us. Getting the best care does. She gave me the price for the titer (sp?) tests For canine $93.00 for rabies is $167.00 Harley just got her rabies vaccine last year and it is the 3 year one so we don't need to worry about that. And she may not even need the titer test this year.

For feline (Joe has a appointment on Feb 3) The titer test is $89 rabies is the same price as dog. She said that because Joe is an indoor cat they don't do that test because they don't vaccinate indoor cats for rabies. She also said the titer test doesn't need to be done every year, I am going to double check on that one to make sure.

They have 2 types of appointments a 30 min one for $50 where they do a general physical exam, and you can speak to the vet ask ect.
And an hour long exam for $145 they do a more indepth exam and accupuncture message and herbal remedies.
