Strangely, and happily (if there is anything 'happy' about my boy's situation), I have to say that some of the polls here don't include a low enough euro amount for the tests we've had done. Despite the unfavorable exchange rate, veterinary care here is less expensive than it is Stateside, sometimes to an impressive degree. So far, we've paid 90 for the ACTH, 60 for his ultrasound (done by GP, though, which we will likely have redone this week at the IMS and which I'm sure will be more costly there), and today his LDDS is supposed to run around 70, but that's just for the test itself, so I'm guessing the total bill will be around 100. If it's more than that, I'll advise.

Almost everything here (except for wine...again...happily) is more expensive than it is at home. I feel very, very fortunate that vet care is an exception to the rule.
