Vet cost??

Hi,

I recently started to bring my cat to Vet in Switzerland..( Previous I alwayas brought him to Germany...)

I found the costs in Switzerland is so expensive..almost double than in Germany...

I brought my cat to have 2 shots...
I see there is even a Vet consultany for 15 mins and cost almost Fr.50...

And another 2 annual shots cost almost Fr.100...


Did I go to the wrong Vet or it is the market price...?

Which pet insurance have you subscribed to? AFAIK, it doesnt cover shots.

OP, I paid 50 CHF - 80 CHF for my dog's annual boosters. Cant remember exactly how much now. Sounds about right.

Re: Vet cost??

Same price range for me. I also can't say that it is so bothersome. I pay a lot more for my dentist and doctor. Why should the vet be so much less?

Re: Vet cost??

I've always found Swiss vets to be much more reasonably priced than UK ones

Our dog is insured with animalia, she has a 500 chf excess, but they will cover the cost of annual booster up to 50 chf per calender year, this is what it says on their website:

Impfungen Fr. 50.- pro Kalenderjahr, nicht der Franchise und dem Selbstbehalt unterliegend (diese Leistung ist bei der reinen Unfalldeckung nicht eingeschlossen)

(doesn't affect the excess or premium).

This is their website:

http://www.animaliasa.ch/web/animali...enDocument&L=D

I think we pay about 65 chf for the annual booster, so it works out quite well.
