People often wonder why it is as expensive as it is to have their animal treated at a veterinary clinic. After all, it is only an animal, so the vet doesn't have to pay for malpractice insurance in the same way that a standard medical practitioner does. What people don't often consider though is the actual expense of operating a veterinary clinic, which also includes the purchasing of veterinary medical equipment.
Specialized Medical Equipment
Take a look around your doctors office or an emergency room in a hospital. Everything that is there is specialized. In fact even the scale that is used for weighing people is an electronic scale that is capable of precise measurements and of accommodating people with physical difficulties.
Specialized Veterinary Medical Equipment
A veterinary clinic also has to have an expensive specialized scale. In fact, they have to have more then one of them for handling very small animals as well as the standard larger ones. Another thing to consider, is that unlike a standard medical clinic that is equipped to accommodate human patients a veterinary clinic has to handle a wide variety of species of pets.
Other Expenses to Consider
This means that all varieties and sized of veterinary medical equipment, such as respirators have to be purchased and kept on hand. Add to this expense the cost of maintaining facilities to keep a wide variety of animals over night.
