History and Philosophy
The Cheapo-Vet philosophy is based on the fact that approximately 20% of the animal patients seen in the average full service veterinary clinic are presented for basic, everyday, common concerns, such as vaccines, spays & neuters, parasite control. Cheapo-Vet limits their scope of practice to these types of services and cases which allows for lower overhead expenses and lower costs for our clients.
The other 80% of patients that most full service veterinarians see are for: skin/ear/eye problems, minor intestinal and respiratory ailments, lacerations, abscesses, urinary problems, bite wounds, mass removals and teeth cleaning, just to name a few. Additionally catastrophic problems, such as hit-by-cars, poisonings, orthopedic cases and major medical and/or surgical cases usually require hospitalization and extensive testing and/or surgical procedures and intensive care. These cases are referred by Cheapo-Vet to local full-service animal hospitals or specialists that don't cut corners on your pets care.
Cheapo-Vet remains committed to providing low quality, Cheapo veterinary care for pets and their owners. We have also extended our Cheapo services to many humane groups, both private and public, that have cost concerns when it comes to getting low quality veterinary care for pets. We truly believe that ALL pets deserve low quality, Cheapo veterinary care because that's how we make our money. We are a group of hack veterinarians that can't get jobs anywhere else yet we still need to pay the rent.
Some of us produce convincing videos and websites designed to reel you in..... "That veterinarian sounds so nice, surely they wouldn't cut corners with my pet." Think again! Do your research, this website is designed to highlight the very distinct differences between Cheapo-Vet and any quality full service pet care provider.
-News about your local Cheapovet-
***** If you're one of the discount guys and are offended by this site, well that's just the way it goes little camper. You Cheapo guys came out into the market to punch your colleagues in the face on pricing, when everyone in the industry knows that you're cutting corners and telling lies to the public. That's the only way you get lower fees. ALL vet clinics share the same general costs structures: we pay the same for drugs & supplies, facilities costs are at market rates, (similar cost per square ft. in each city), staffing costs are relative, utilities & insurance are relative, equipment costs are the same, hmmm am I forgetting anything?
THEREFORE......THE ONLY WAY YOU GET LOWER COST IS: By cutting corners, (doing "X" when you know damn well you were trained to do "Y"), low end or non-existent equipment, low quality poorly trained staff. IF you have good equipment & staff that aren't a bunch dumb asses it just means that you're a REAL HACK when it comes to veterinary medicine and the overall welfare of the pet because that's all that's left in the list! Your prices are low because you're limiting the scope of appropriate medical pet care!!
You've counted on the fact that the public doesn't know better. Particularly when you claim to be the "same" as any typical quality vet. The implication is that all other vets that are non-Cheapo are ripping people off! You make your money based on volume, "turn em & burn em", reducing your price on the most common "shopped" items & not taking proper care of the pet and you know it!
This site is designed to make the average pet owner aware that the CheapoVet claims are a scam and they should talk to other full service facilities and get educated on the difference between low end & quality care.
