It’s possible that the company supplying tests and labs to your veterinarian illegally increased the price of its products – and you ended up paying for it.
Specifically, attorneys are looking into whether a veterinary test manufacturer engaged in unlawful conduct that forced veterinarians to overpay for certain test kits. Unfortunately, any extra costs were likely passed down to pet owners and made bills for certain veterinary services more outrageous than usual.
It is suspected that inflated prices may have been charged for certain blood and urine tests, as well as other diagnostic tests performed at a veterinarian’s office. Blood tests can be performed to check for liver or kidney disease and are often performed prior to surgery to check the animal’s tolerance for anesthesia and to assess their overall health.
Keep in mind, however, that attorneys are looking into whether they can file a class action lawsuit against a manufacturer of the tests – not practicing veterinarians.
