Out this morning tidying pens etc, Mischa my GSP is exploring close by as usual. She comes back to me and sits down by me licking the inside of her leg, I had a look and was horrified to see a gash on the inside of her back leg, she had sliced the skin about 4" long, which the skin had pulled open leaving a flap and exposed muscle. Washed it off with saline solution, had a look and there was no way that I was going to gather it up and keep it together where it was situated so we decide to contact the vets.
We get there and the vet has a look and says it is clean and tidy, no damage at all to the underlying muscle, but of course it needs to be closed, ok fine, how much is this going to cost? He goes off the get an estimate. Bearing in my it is just a straight forward stitching up, I nearly hit the deck when he quoted £6-700, , what a ****ing rip off, that includes a £150 Sunday emergency fee, I don't think that its only the woofer that has been stitched up.
We have got her insured and the vet was happy to deal with the company directly rather than me having to fork it all out, but that's not the point, its just like having a licence to print money as far as I can see.
