    Also last week I had payed off an old vet bill with a check and mailed it in. Well long story short bank locked up the account and I had called the vet to advise them about this and if they got the check to hold onto it, they agreed. Next morning when they opened I called and said all was good to cash cause the bank unlocked my account. All was good.

    Yesterday I get a bill saying 'insufficient funds' and a charge for $25 along with my geldings rabies certificate that was pulled last week. Just got two more letters from them today with an UPDATED bill saying the check went through and what I owe now. Then the other letter is just my geldings negitive coggins paper.

    This is exactly what I'm effing talking about. Not to mention I called today to talk about this and was told 'they'll look into it and call me back' and never even called back.

    All of the above you've described would make me quite alarmed - I'm an easy going person with a long patience, but when it comes to my horse's health, I would definately be checking out other vet prospects. I don't know what region you're in, but if the vet choices are few (like mine) I wouldn't "burn any bridges" per say, but the next time there's a float or vaccine to be done simply call the other. Then based upon the total competence of the office, begin calling the new one for routine care - it's not unusual in my region to have patient accounts with more than one equine vet. Good luck! :)

    ^^ thank you. We have many vets around here and I think I will just switch to another for shots, etc. I'm just so appalled. It's ever since I've gotten multiple horses is when my bills have become crazy. It's never right. I'm calling an speaking to the owner tomorrow.

    I really think that the owner will appreciate you calling them. If there are multiple vets in your area, it may be time to talk to others.

    Called and spoke with the billing lady and apparently they sent out the first receipt saying check was received and on file. Which I assumed that it went through. Then they sent that 'insufficient funds' paper meaning it didnt. -how the hell am I suppost to know what that meant?!

    So I had to send another check because for some reason the first one didnt go through and I still have to pay the **** fee. -_- great.

    Oh, and still no results on the test I was supposed to have back to me last week. So much bs!!
