Wayside Animal Clinic - Jasper, Georgia Complaint - Price Too High - Strongid Parasite Treatment

Review by 63491 on 2008-04-10
JASPER, GEORGIA -- This review is for animal lovers who live in the North Georgia area in Jasper, Ellijay, Blue Ridge, and Canton. This review also for those who are conscious about how their money is spent.

We all know that taking care of pets can be very expensive, so we need all the help we can get.

If your pet is in need of the particular parasite treatment called "Strongid," please do not buy it at Wayside Animal Clinic in Jasper Georgia. Their price is extremely high. For the amount of .2 CC of Strongid, the price was $11.96! I compared this price with a friend who recently had to buy 1.5 CC of Strongid. Her price was a mere $2.58! As you may expect, my reaction was a total shock. She brought the Strongid at Appalachian Animal Hospital in Ellijay Georgia.

I have learned a lesson from this experience, and that is to shop around or call different animal clinics for price quotes beforehand.

I am in no way blaming the clinic for my actions. I just hope it won't happen to anyone else.

I will neither defend or condemn the price you paid for the medication. Perhaps I can explain it. Vets depend on their dispensory for income. The poster did not complain about the price of an office visit and it is likely that one was obtained, since few vets will prescribe without seeing the pet. Perhaps the office visit fees are very affordable and the margin is made on medication? Price among vets varies and this is a good thing. If the fees/med prices are out of your budget, feel free to go elsewhere. Thank you for the post!
