Really sorry MMP.
Vets fees are horrendous nowadays. They have such posh surgeries and staff to pay that they have to charge huge amounts. Why are animal drugs so much more expensive than human ones? My son had exactly the same steroid after he had a bad allergic reaction as my dog.
We used to have a vet near us and he worked out of the back of a van in his drive. You drove up in your car and waited until he came to see you. He didn't have computors or nurses but you felt you could trust him. There were queues every morning. No appointments just wait your turn. He never charged for children's pets or wild animals brought to him. Sadly he's retired now.
Hope all goes well for you MMP
