I know that vets go to school for a long time and deserve the money they get for the services they provide... however, I find it a little offensive that I am required to pay 32 dollars for prescriptions for amoxicillin and metronidazole. These drugs should cost somewhere around 10 to twelve dollars maximum but my vet dispenses them himself with some ridiculous upcharge. YIKES.
Working as a pharmacy student I feel the need to question this practice and ask him for a written prescription to take my business elsewhere. I am then informed that there is a 10 dollar fee for writing prescriptions. What a joke. My dog's diarrhea had damn well better clear up... she's apparently eating capsules of diamonds wrapped in gold and platinum for that price.
