Vet Appointment Wait Times and Ultrasound Costs
Just wondering how long it takes to get a vet appointment with your vet? Is it normal that it takes a month to get an appointment? That's how long it takes me to get an appointment with my vet.
Also how much have people paid for ultrasounds, surgeries, diagnosis? I paid $600 for an ultrasound which seems very expensive.

My vet has 3 vets on her staff including herself, she her self is in very high demand, before the Pandemic it would take me 2 weeks to see her, but I could have seen one of the other vets sooner, now with the pandemic everything is curbside pick up, now it takes me a week to see only her. If your vet works alone I can understand a months wait which is really awful.
I can't help you with your 2nd question, fortunately I haven't needed any of them. Others will chime in shortly.

Price is really determined by your location more then anything. Here in Maryland things are crazy expensive. Covid has made wait times much longer here then they used to be. I have been going to my vet for about 13 years so they know we well if I have an emergency they get me in as quick as they can and the same goes for if it is an issue that can't wait a long time but other then that is is about a 2 week wait time. I wish I could remember how much Callie's ultrasound was at the internist but it was lumped in with a lot of other things so I can't seem to pull it out of my head right now. If your dog is having a pretty serious issue a month is way to long but it really depends on what is going on.

My vet is actually pretty good about getting an appointment quickly. If it is an emergency I will see another vet at the office but usually wait for her to be available. She is also one of doctors that does the ultrasounds so I feel more comfortable. The other doctor that does them is also very accomplished.
My vet only charges $250 for an ultrasound which I find very reasonable.

I am in Toronto too. Ultrasound back ten or more years ago was$350 approx
X-rays I only go for digital ones and by the way way interesting to view $400. This would be multiple X-rays.
I remember seeing a patella aversion. Great to see what my hands sensed!
I sing/croon to my dogs, it relaxes us both. I also dance a bit with them too. There is no limit when you put your imagination in gear
