a couple of weeks ago, while the vet was at my barn seeing 2 other horses, i asked if she had any extra dewormer with her. which she did. i bought 2 boxes. when i received the bill, i was charged for the 2 boxes and a $10 barn call fee.
now, the fee is $60 and when she sees more than 1 horse, the fee is split between owners. so, it was $30 each for these owners who had appts. and now that she charged me $10, they saved 5 bucks.
i have spent well over $1000 for the vet this year, so far. and, she didn't have to go a single step out of her way. i just walked up to her and she had 2 boxes of dewormer in her hand and i asked her if she had any more and she said sure and handed them to me.
do you think i'm being fussy for thinking that was kind of not right? i mean it's not like i asked her to take a look at my horse at all. and i've certainly given her lots of business this year with more to come. i love her, she's a sweetie, but, i'm a bit bugged, obviously.
