OK, that age means your vet is probably adding in additional painkillers and antibiotics. Does this also include any pre-surgical testing? If so, look into it and decide whether you really want to pay for that. If that price includes extra drugs for your cat's comfort and potential infection...that's not a bad price. Of course - you'll need to decide how you feel about prophylactic antibiotics. Ask for a line by line accounting of that price tag and see if they are adding in unnecessary test/drugs etc. Research research research. And then, if you still can't decide - PM me and I'll hook you up with my friend, the vet. She's not a fan of bill padding...
