Well I called them today to get some prices, and they are very reasonable! Thank's for the heads up on this clinic, it's good to know that there are some decently priced clinics in this area.shadow_cruiser wrote: ↑Feb 12th, 2012 8:37 pmHull Veterinary Clinic, cheapest by far in the Ottawa region. $80 for a spay/neuter, who's cheaper than that?. I find they treat you better than my previous vet at Beechwood Animal Hospital also.

Here's some of the prices I got from them; they are fairly similar to my vet in Ogdensburg. I was surprised at the prices they gave me as I've never seen prices this low in the Ottawa area; although the drive to Hull from Kanata is not much less than to Ogdensburg for me...
Prices don't include tax (while there is no tax in NY for vet fees)
Annual dog vaccines (includes vet consultation which is normally $47.80) $66.90 + $31.70 for lyme disease, if you need it
X-rays: small $130, large $160
IV fluids: $80
I didn't ask about neutering, and I'm curious to know if it's laser surgery or the "old fashion" way. My vet in NY charged about $150 for my large dog (smaller animals are cheaper), and it was laser surgery.
I asked about dental work, but she couldn't price that over the phone because there are too many variables.
I asked about blood work, and she said it was hard to say, but basic blood work is about $50, and could go up to $100-150 depending on what needed to be done.
The other issue, which I didn't ask about, but is worth consideration, is the price of medicine. I've found when I purchased medicine in the States it's much cheaper than in Canada.
I still think you would come out ahead going down to NY, but depending on what you need it may not be worth the time. There is gas to think about too, however, you can also fill up down there and it's about $0.30/litre cheaper in NY.
