O.O Wow. That is terrible.
I paid $45 for a physcial and antibiotics for a slight cold for Scrappy. (He was going to do the nail trimming, which didn't need it so he didn't, and wanted to clip his wings, but I like to keep Scrappy's wings full because we still have the cat.)
I'm in Ohio, so its a bit further away. From what I've noticed, though, things tend to be a bit more expensive within the city...perhaps phone to vets in the area? (The best price wasn't the one I took, only because it was a half hour drive out there...$15 by an old farm vet.
) That's actually what I did...mostly because I wasn't sure if they did birds.
