There is no set price for vet visits. Different clinics have different charges. It also depends on the procedures you have done.

Usually there is a base fee for just coming in, and everything else is added to that.

I've paid anywhere from $35 to about $100 to just walk in the door and have the veterinarian say "Yep its a hedgehog." And that doesn't include any specialists, just your standard exotic veterinarian. I usually expect my bill to come to around $100 for a visit and medication.

Our vet bill starts at $85. And if anyone needs some "happy gas" it's $15 more. That a good, normal, quick check-up visit without any meds or xrays. X-Rays usually cost around $100-$150 a pop (at my clinic at least). Our "free" rescue basically turned into a purchase when he needed 2 xrays, a check up, and medicine after not eating for 2 weeks Not to mention a new cage and supplies

You can call some vet near of your place and ask them how much is it for exotic pets. That would be easy to know because it's different at each place.

I pay 56$ for an annual exam.

Revolution, for a small hedghog is about 12$

To put stiches on Élliott's eye was 102$ and the antibiotic was around 13$

Antibiotic for urine infection was about 10$

For a following check-up it's 46$ (That's ridiculus...)

And somethimes she doesn't charge me for a following check-up.

For a X-ray it's around 30$.

And I never used analgesic so I don't know how much is it. but I'm curious to know!!

Our vet is in a posh little CT town. Everything on the Northeast coast is ridiculously expensive. Except for groceries... I found that they're actually WAY more expensive in Chicago than they are in New York City

It cost me almost $100 to do a checkup and treatment for mites. It was $50 base fee, $25 for the skin scraping, and $16 for Revolution.
