A sterilization surgery for a person might cost 200 Yuan, but the same surgery for a dog cost at least 400! Conclusion: Damn singles were not being treated as well as pet dogs. That’s sad! The equipment in a normal hospital was all paid for by the government. However, the equipment in a pet clinic was paid for by the clinic owner. That’s why it cost so much to visit a vet. An X-Ray machine for pets costs at least 50 thousand Yuan. The life span is about 3-5 years. All sorts of maintenance fees add up. Counting other equipment such as color Doppler ultrasound, one could not get back his/her investment if he/she does not charge a high price. There are also overheads like rent, utility, wages and other expenses. Having a pet clinic is not easy. The vet has to make a living and also make their exudation worthwhile. If the profit is too low, they would be better off working for a large pet hospital. Some people think that the vet is expensive because there is insurance to cover the cost for humans, but animals don’t have insurance. Now it is popular to "adopt a pet instead of purchasing". This was a great idea; however, when the pet gets sick, how many people would in fact spend the money and take them to the vet? Some people might, but most people won’t. This is to stop losing more money.
