Hi still researching. I plan on getting a pair, and I know that most of you have more. My question is; how much can I expect to pay in vet bills a year? I wanna make sure that I have a vet fund set aside incase of emergencies.

Normally gliders only need a check up once a year, which normally runs about $20-50 per glider, but it's very important to have an emergency vet fund. I've spent up to $300 on one emergency vet visit and that was cheap (my vet always cuts me deals)... I would say have at least $500 set aside per glider in case of emergencies.

Office Fee: 26.50 for the first glider, 12 for each add.
Fecal Float: 16.50
Fecal Smear: 16.50
Urinalysis: 10.00

In the last 3 vet visits (June 07, January 08, & February 08) I have spent a total of $222.

Good option to look into is Care Credit it is a credit card that can only be used for medical purposes including vet bills! And you can get approved and get your card number all in one day. Interest rates are low and usually your first purchase is 18 months zero interest. I used when my son needed some dental work. Just a thought I paid mine off but still keep it open just in case.

I think the care credit may be a good idea. I just went through an emergency with Petey (posted it in your other post) and it ended up costing over 600.00. You can never really know how much an emergency can cost, so it is good to have a back up plan, as well.
