You never want money to get in the way of performing the tests a pet needs. But sometimes clients live far from the specialty practice where their pets receive treatment or their regular veterinarian offers some of the same tests at a lower cost. That's why Ron Butler Jr., a veterinary assistant at Dermatology for Animals in Gilbert, Ariz., says it can help for general and referral practices to work together. "There are only certain tests that we do that clients' regular veterinarians don't," Butler says. "So when we suggest a test like blood work, we tell clients if they want to have their regular veterinarian perform the test, they're more than welcome."
