How much do you pay for a vet check?

How much does it cost where you live to get a vet check? I was thinking $150-$160 but I was surprised to see it was $265.

I'm no expert on this and this will be the first time i'm taking him to the vet with me owning him.

Also do they give shot or is that separate?

I pay $160 for my vet to come out to do yearly stuff. But he only does Coggins and Rabies, I do my own shots which saves money. He just gives me a list of what ones I need.

So including the shots I have to buy I pay a total of: $205

That's nice. My step dad know how to give shot. I'll ask the vet what kind he needs and we can do it our selfs. Thanks for sharing that.

The vets I work for charge $ 35 for the exam and whatever shots are given. If they go on a ranch call, it is between #
$25 and $35 extra in the valley and up to $50 for out of the valley

Our shots are $15 for rabies and depending on what shots you get, anywhere from $25-40 per vaccination

My last vet bill was like..almost $400.

That was for shots, some chiro, teeth floating, and a chunk of the farm call (our vet came up one day and did everyone's shots and teeth and chiro).

A farm call alone for our vet is $120, but she's about an hour and a half away. The invoice is buried in my emails so I can't remember exactly how much everything is. I am fairly certain chiro is $115. I think the shots and teeth were about those prices too because I think my chunk of the farm call was about $30.

For a check itself, I think I had to pay $200+. $120 for her to come up, $40 for tranqing, and a bit more for actually checking her out. (I came back from Christmas break and had a lame horse with odd scrapes all over her hind leg. She determined it looked like rope burn. I don't even know. It was kind of a waste of money because the next day they were mostly scabbed over and within a couple days she was walking fine again.. grr)
