    Caution… There more expensive then any other vet I’ve been to. My cat needed surgery they est $3000… My regular vet did for $600

      Thanks for the heads up Nena. Wasn’t aware until now that Petco does this. It’s possible the costs are so high because of all the advertising and marketing they must do.

      It’s always good to shop around especially when your fur baby needs surgery. For example, our vet wanted to charge $400+ to neuter our dog. The local spay/neuter organization only charges $55. HUGE difference!

      They’re, not there, dumdum.

    Is there a way to read the fine print w/o putting in my information? We recently adopted our dog from a rescue and the previous owner had taken the dog to a Banfield, but we have not. I’m wondering if “first time” is pet specific or owner specific.

    • J

      It’s owner specific, I adopted a cat from petsmart who also had records from Banfield and got the first one (with me) free—just make sure to remind them when you check in.

    I got a paper in the mail for this. I have a vet but they haven’t been helpful in dealing with my dog’s allergies, so thought about going for a consult. Weary of getting anything additional done though, those rates😬

    • Maggie

      Rebecca, I handle tens of thousands of dollars of vet care a year for an animal rescue, for a breed prone to allergies. Save yourself aggravation in the long run by making an appointment with a vet dermatologist — the initial exam will cost more than a regular visit (probably $150), but you’ll zero in very quickly on the source and successful treatment strategies with an expert, instead of spinning your wheels at “generalist” vet practices. You can easily spend $500 to $1000 getting nowhere on treating allergies at general vet practices. They’re hard and complicated to manage. You’ll get more bang for your buck with a board-certified vet derm.

    I’ve heard a number of bad things about Banfield, so you may want to check out reviews of the one in your area before you decide to take your pet there.

      My daughter had a bad experience/outcome with her lab. She took her dog there because she was coughing/dry heaving and left her there to be treated and monitored. Then they called her to come back to take her dog to the emergency clinic. But it was too late. Her dog had a twisted stomach and Banfield couldn’t treat her. I was shocked!!! Outcome was not good…even though it may not have been good anyway.

    I work at Banfield. There is no catch. Just print the coupon and you get a free office visit which includes an exam from the doctor.

    Banfield is MARS Petcare — yes, the candy family owns a multi-billion dollar pet empire. They make Royal Canin and Pedigree food too. A lot has been written about the massive profit-centered nature of their vet care model. First, Banfield does not follow the gold-standard, evidence-based vaccination guidelines from the AAHA (which is based on research by a blue-ribbon panel of experts finding core vaxes are only needed every 3 years) — they reportedly pressure clients to do unnecessary annual vaxing instead of only every three-years because it’s profitable. Second, business news articles have reported that they require vet-employees to follow sales scripts to up-sell (especially “wellness packages”) — and base vet employee compensation in part on success doing that. Third, the same journals report that they require cookie-cutter computer-generated treatment protocol scripts with very little flexibility for vets to actually use their brains and practice client-centered veterinary medicine. They’ll reportedly often recommend you do all possible diagnostics ($$$$) for an illness, when an old-fashioned vet might say “let’s start with some inexpensive bloodwork and see where it leads us, before you spend a lot of money for all these specialized tests.” I recommend finding an independent, local vet who has the style of practice you like, develop a client relationship that will last for years, let them get to know you and your specific needs, and you’ll probably be much happier (and likely spend less) over the long-run, instead of chasing after “coupon deals” for vet care. I have my vet’s cell phone number for after hours because we’ve been through so many years of animals together — nobody has a right to expect that, but it’s the sort of thing you may get from a clinic owner who cares deeply about clients he’s known for many years….but not from a chain. I also highly recommend looking for a vet that is “Fear Free Certified” (and who has FF certified vet techs)–it’s an amazing approach that really makes a difference in reducing stress for pets.

    I have the wellness plan with Banfield for my dog and I love it. It covers his vaccines, one dental cleaning with anesthesia, 2 sets of labs and unlimited visits. When I first got him I never had a dog before. It gave me piece of mind I could take him in anytime I had a concern. Yes, not all stuff is covered. This is a wellness plan so if you have a sick pet or one with a chronic illness, this probably isn’t the plan for you. Additional non-covered services are at a discount rate though.
