They charged me $512 for a single visit with 2 rabbits WITHOUT ANY HEADS-UP - and they most definitely did NOT provide $512 worth of services. I was sick to my stomach when I left. VCA Fox Chapel is a rip off and they provide a disservice to animals and pet owners. After seeing the breakdown of the bill, I could't believe how much they charged. The one rabbit is (per statement vet) not going to get better. Yet, he still drew blood and several yelled codes to the techs. He also drew blood from the other bunny and yelled similar codes to the back. Turns out each of these "codes" he yelled back was a blood test for which they charged about $60 a piece. The one bunny also got 2 injections: 0.3 ml of PenG was $41.72 (mind the fact that I have this bottle of PenG at home because the vet put the other bunny on this medication weeks ago, so he should/ could have remembered that and just let me give the injection at home if that's what they charge for this! And the whole 100 ml bottle was about $8 at the store) and 0.1 ml (yes, a tiny tiny amount) of Metacam for $43.34. The base consultation is $77 for a bunny. When the check-out lady saw how flabbergasted I was, she asked if I told the vet I had money trouble. Money trouble? Because I'm not prepared to pay $512 for a single visit?

I love all of the vets at VCA Fox Chapel ! I have been a client for the last few years and I am very lcuky to have them as my doctors. When my cat was really sick Dr. Resek nursed her back to health. You can tell that she is very compassionate about her job. She kept me well informed and was just great. In follow-up care I have had Dr. Breneman and Dr. Uhl and they have also been wonderful ! I just can't thank them enough !!

I have to say that Dr. Amanda Resek is one of the best veterinarinas I have ever come across. After spending time in multiple cities I am always anxious when I have to find a new veterinarian. She is pleasant, informative and just great, great, great !!!! My dog never wants to leave !!!!!!!
