A new survey from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that a third of vets are still struggling to pay their bills.
The study also shows that vets in general are still paying more for their health care than the general public, with an average cost of $12,000 per year.
The average cost for a general hospital visit is $16,000.
The bureau says the trend of vets paying more is not unique to the Southeast, but rather has been going on for years.
According to the BLS, in 2009, the average cost per year for a US vet to care for a family member was $15,000, and for a person to do a home visit, the cost was $20,000 a year.
The new survey, which surveyed 1,831 vets from March through May, was conducted by a firm that tracks the healthcare costs of vets.
The survey was conducted in the same month that the government announced a $2.2 billion increase in the number of veterinary visits.
The survey found that the average veterinary visit cost the US vet $9,200 in 2016, but that the cost of a general visit went up to $18,500.
This is despite the fact that vets are often seeing more patients, as a result of the Affordable Care Act.
The most common veterinary visits a vet saw in 2016 were for cataracts, hip surgery, ear surgery and ear infections.
The cost for those surgeries rose from $3,000 in 2008 to $8,700 in 2016.
For general surgeries, the most common cost rose from about $9000 in 2014 to $15-18,000 this year.
Veterinary visits for ear infections rose from around $8 a visit in 2016 to $20 in 2016 for a visit of about a year or two.
The Bureau of Health Statistics says the increase in visits is due to a number of factors, including the Affordable Health Care Act, and an increase in new prescriptions.
The increase in prescriptions, particularly for drugs like Cialis, is also contributing to the increase.
Dr. Michelle Glynn, president of the American Veterinary Medical Association, told Business Insider that there is still a lot of room for improvement.
Dr Glynn said there is an “urgent need” for more veterinary care.
She said vets need to be able to visit their patients for more than two hours, not just the two or three minutes they used to.
Dr Jennifer Eichenberger, president and CEO of the Center for Veterinary Medicine and Health Research at Emory University, said that the problem is not that vets aren’t paying enough, but they are making the same mistakes that the general population is making.
Eichenberger said that if vets are not reimbursed for the cost, they could become “trapped” in the cycle of debt and neglect that she said is “all too common.”
Eichenberg said the American Public Health Association has called on the Department of Health and Human Services to set up a national data portal to track the costs of healthcare in general, and vet visits in particular.
The American Veterinary Specialty Medical Association is also working to set a goal of reducing vets’ spending on their care.
Veterinarians say they need to pay more for care, and they need a new system to make sure that they don’t get stuck in a cycle of paying bills and not getting the care they need.
Dr. Lisa Linsmier, chief executive of Emory’s Veterinary Medicine Institute, said there needs to be a universal program for vets to be reimbursed at the same time as a general population.
Linsmiers said the way that vets pay their vet bills is really important.
She explained that vets often pay for their care with their own pocketbooks.
If they do not, the vet can end up in debt.
She said vets also need to have a clear understanding of how much care they are getting, and that a simple calculation can help them figure out how much they need at a time.
The AP reported on Thursday that the price of veterinary care in the US has been trending downward for a number to two years in a row, but Dr. Glynn believes that it is getting worse.
Dr Linsmunier said vets are currently seeing their spending double or triple what it was four years ago.
She told Business Insiders that the increase of Cialus prescriptions and the increased demand for veterinary care from new patients is making things even worse.
