Last week I had to contact the out of hours vet regarding my wife’s dog which got its paw caught in the reclining mechanism of my chair.

I managed to free his paw after being bitten twice but he was limping badly.

After speaking to the emergency vet I was horrified at the vets wanting £152 on the spot just to examine and any medication or X-ray would be extra. Luckily our dog recovered later that evening but the shock of the costs is absolutely disgusting.
