    Boosters at mine are about 30 i think (i'd have to look through reciepts) and an ultra sound doesn't even cost me half of that!! :eek: x

    I paid £25 for an ultra sound and basic vaccs full course £37 both with 10% discount.

    Unless you think there is an issue, I would avoid taking your girl to the vet during pregnancy, I think its best to keep them as stress free as possible and away from any source of unfamilar bugs which vets are full of.

    agree with Saiks, best not to stress out your girl if not necessary - i used to take all mine for ultra sounds to be sure but i go by the way she is now and only take if i'm worried x

    i can't believe they were trying to charge you that x do they give you discounted rates as a breeder? x

    bit of a silly question really, but hey ho!

    can you not use a pregnancy test like humans and chimps? do cats have the same pregnancy hormones? would it work the same?

    if so, it would be far cheaper than xray or ultrasound!
