Once again, I cannot find an existing thread that really fits my questions, but rather than start a new one, this will do unless pointed towards another thread.
I would just like to ask what kind of charges you incur from your Bulgarian vets whichever part of Bulgaria you may be in.
Despite reassurances to the contrary, I am always slightly suspicious that I am paying the 'Brit' tax on most services I use here.
I have just had my female dog spayed today. The Vet said that he was going to 'remove everything', but not having researched the procedure before taking her, I don't know if that is overkill or more on the safe side against future side effects. Anyway, I stayed with the dog for around an hour as he first injected her to calm her down, second injection to make her drowsy and to get the intravenous one into her leg. At this stage I left to return around two hours later to collect one very disorientated dog.
The vet has supplied (loaned I guess) one rather large Elizabethan Collar, antibiotic tables for 10 days (he always prefers imported over Bulgarian tablets) so, the bill for the operation was 80 Lev and the whole bill 116 Lev.
Now, again, I don't know, but I would guess that by UK standards that is very cheap, but is it cheap here! I cannot see many Bulgarians taking their dogs to the vet to be spayed at these rates OR, am I paying a Foreign Premium price?
So, just grateful for your pricing comparisons.
