Understanding CT Scan Costs: Humans vs. Pets:

Many pet owners are curious as to why CT scans appear more affordable for humans than their pets. There are critical reasons for this discrepancy:

  1. Universal Human Healthcare in Australia: We're fortunate to live in a country with a robust universal human healthcare system. In Australia, many diagnostic services for humans, including CT scans, are heavily subsidised or entirely covered by the taxpayer via government schemes like bulk billing. Unfortunately, such subsidies do not extend to pet healthcare, leading to the perception of higher costs.
  2. Anaesthesia Costs for Pets: Unlike humans, most pets need anaesthesia during CT scans. This introduces additional costs linked to the anaesthetist, anaesthetic drugs, fluids, and subsequent monitoring during recovery.

Given these factors, we at North Richmond Vet Hospital advise pet owners to consider the benefits of pet insurance. This can significantly reduce out-of-pocket expenses, making services like CT scans more affordable.
