The Society of Practising Veterinary Surgeons (SPVS) has launched its 2015 fee survey.
SPVS wants all practices to complete a questionnaire to give as accurate a picture as possible of the fees charged by veterinary practices nationwide.
Designed to cover the most common procedures in a veterinary practice, SPVS says the questionnaire does not take long to complete and covers everything from vaccinating, microchipping and neutering small animals to calving and routine on-farm fertility work in livestock practices and performing a five-stage vetting and dental work in equine practices.
SPVS council member Peter Brown said: “The fee survey has become the ‘go to’ resource for benchmarking pricing in the veterinary profession. The variation in individual fees can be marked and the survey allows practices to see their fees are calculated in a realistic way to reflect their individual costs and overheads as well as local market conditions.”
