Unhappy HELP: Can I pay the vet over the phone? Please read ={

Hey, all.
Making a long story short, I'm picking up my filly on August 2nd. I'm in Virginia... she's halfway across the country.
I need to pay for the vet to get out there and issue her a health certificate so I can travel with her.

I'm having reservations about sending out another check to the person who has her right now for a couple reasons. Does anyone know if it would be common practice (or possible) for me to pay in advance over the phone with a credit card?

**I know I should specifically call the vet, but she hasn't chosen one yet. We're only touching on my sending another check. Just curious if anyone has ever paid over the phone.

Also, if you have ever gotten a Health Certificate, how much did you pay in your area? Origionally her current/previous owner said $25. Now she says $45, even though she hasn't called the vet. Red Flags. I don't like red flags.

Questions. Why is she choosing the vet? Doesn't she have a vet already and why can't you choose one? I'm thinking you should be able to search the net for vets in her area. Check on the prices and payment options yourself. ;) I'm sure most vets will either accept payment via the phone or bill you.

I've paid several vets over the phone, even my own lol But certainly ones I've never used before across the country. I've never heard of a vet NOT accepting payment over the phone via credit card.

I know for vet cert and coggins it runs about $100 with my vet (including exam fee I"m sure), although I'd have to look at a previous bill to know for sure.

If you aren't doing a PPE (which is ALWAYS recomended), I see no reason not to use their vet, but it IS up to you whom to use. And if you ARE doing a PPE like you really should, you should absolutely NOT use their vet. Some vets (many? Most?) won't do a PPE on a horse that is being sold by their client.

I do suggest YOU call the vet who will be doing this to inquire on price, and pay them DIRECTLY, not through the seller ;)

Thanks! I wrote the current/previous owner a few minutes ago asking when she's available to see the vet so I can make an appointement. I said I wanted to call around myself to choose a vet myself and pay with a credit card. We'll see what she says! I think she's getting annoyed with me =/, which ticks me off. I mean, it's a large, expensive, living animal after all. HUGE investment. The filly recently had a Coggins test, so that isn't an issue. I'm going to talk with the vet about a PPE, too.... even though I put a half deposit down already.

You are one brave lady. I would never brave out a horse purchase without seeing the horse first.

Good luck with the vet check. Keep us posted on how things go.
