Dog became very ill. My usual vet was out of town. Was prescribed an expensive med which was needed. They gave me six $8 (ea.) pills but his cough was chronic so when he finished his doses the following week, I asked my usual vet for more. She was only charging me $6 per pill. She had to order and would not receive until the next day. I decided to go back to VAC Lindley and get a couple to tide my dog over until the next day. He was very ill and was in dire need of them. I called ahead to get them and was told that both doctors AND the office mgr were off that day and no one had a key to that med cabinet! That threw me into a panic! Why would BOTH vets AND the office mgr. be off on the same day??? The tech told me he'd have to get a hold of someone to see if they could drop by and open it. He called me back and said that someone would. I went for the TWO pills. When they entered the invoice they told me it would be almost $30!!! Of course I questioned that ridiculous price but was told that that was the price for two even though I was just there over the weekend and had paid $400. for his visit/treatment! I was very disturbed especially after I was told that "they are expensive meds but if you buy more quantity we can discount". What? Was I at Sam's Club? I was insulted and then was told there was nothing they could do because no one of authority was there. $15 a pill instead of $8 as the weekend before, and "so sorry". Rip-off with a "smile". Terrible!
