Nice surprise!

We took DS's dog for her checkup and a slew of shots that were due. I was bracing for the bill, which I figured would be well over $100. (I was right.) But when I went to pay, the receptionist said we had a $63 credit on our account. Apparently, they forgot to give us the 30% discount for a service dog on our last visit and were nice enough to make note of it. I ended up paying $67, which was much better than I had expected.

It's the small blessings that add up ...

  1. What a blessing! I just spent over $250 on my dog's annual visit, but $102 of it was his tick medicine. Ugh.

    1. Thankfully, the organization where we got her provides the heartworm/flea/tick meds. Those are outrageously expensive.

  2. That is always nice! Gotta love little surprises like that, especially since there are so many places that wouldn't have carried it over without you demanding it.

    1. Yes, I was shocked they offered. I didn't even realize the goof on the last visit so I wouldn't have missed it. They definitely earned points in my book!

    1. Oh, how nice. Our other dog would be so much happier if he didn't have to go anywhere. He's old and cranky :)

  4. We have three cats, and while *I* think they do a great service to our family....they aren't quite a service animal. :) Vet stuff can add up, and that is wonderful that yours gives a discount for service animals.

    How is DS doing????

    1. Thanks for asking Mysti! He's doing pretty well. Last pulmonary visit showed a decline, but he doesn't seem any worse for wear. One day at a time, right??

  5. Oh, vets are expensive! I had a diabetic cat for 8 years & wow, between all the glucose checks, the insulin (because of course he didn't respond to the cheaper insulin), the strips to test him with, his special food ... no wonder we have enormous CC debt LOL! Glad to hear you caught a break!

  6. What a nice business, to realize their error & credit it back to you. More than you get from most places anyway!

    1. Isn't that the truth? This vet's office is not the closest one to us by a long shot, but they get my business for treating me like that. Other businesses could learn a thing or two!

  7. A landlord credit rating examine is often a software used by landlords so as to determine the volume of as well as the kind of possibility a new prospective renter can be. The basis can be in which earlier credit rating linked dealings of any pure or even juridical man or woman could figure out somewhat the prospect of a new renter defaulting or even paying your lease in time and in full.
