The French veterinary system

A Cross Dog!!

Today, a trip to the vets for a bi-annual check up for Tess the dog.

The vet carried out a thorough check, took blood, gave her three booster vaccinations and updated the microchip records and before we left the blood results came through which indicated a slight liver problem.

We were in the vets office for over an hour and left with a course of worming tablets, a detailed analysis of the blood test results, the dogs’ health book was stamped and updated with the three vacinnations and we had instructions to return in three weeks for a further blood test and two more vaccinations.

So, how much did I pay for this trip to the vets ?….

Take a guess …
