Treatments: Acupuncture, Chinese herbs and homeopathy
Cost: $200 for an initial one-hour appointment; $90 for 30-minute follow-ups
Ummm, I think this is as much as Neurologist for humans might charge or for that matter a lawyer's hourly rate is right along that line.
Ahhhh, I think I'm heading the right direction! WOWSER...I think that I could pay my bills with this kinda of rate....WhooHoo.
Although...I feel a little guilty here...STOP!
My idea has been to open up retail outlets that make holistic health care for pets affordable.
Honestly, to charge this much is really not right, nor can regular folks afford it. As a result of these prices so many pets who really need this type of care will go without.
The rich get richer and the poor get poorer...
But there is something else at play here. Why is holistic health care considered a specialty and commanding the highest dollar? When in fact this should be the common mode of treatment and the cost to the patient be reasonable, especially since we tout the treatment principles of preventative medicine.
It is our job as a holistic practitioner to prevent disease, not capitalize on disease.
Shame on these opportunistic Veterinarians. (I just hope I don't turn into one of them)
