Vet Bills and VAT

4 Comments 1st July 2010

Why is it neccessary to charge VAT on vet bills, I have just had another one of my ponies laid to rest, and on the bill it states euthinasia plus VAT, if I was to add up all the VAT that I have paid over the years, for horses dogs cats etc it would come to thousands, some people can hardly afford to take thier pets to a vet so we are seeing more and more abandoned and left to suffer, a reduction in the cost of the actual bill would be good, I know there are places out there where you can get your pet seen to for free but that is only if you are on benefits so if you are in a low paid job there is no extra cash, to most people thier pets are part of thier family so to try and rehome them would be heart breaking, come on stop VAT on poor defensless animals.

Why does this matter?

Perhaps stopping this VAT charge and perhaps to lower vet bills we will see more and more animals treated at a vets instead of a do it yourself which people may try and less abused abandoned animals. Some people may think that a paracetamol tablet is good for your pet but in fact it does more harm.
