Default How much do you spent on vet bills?

Just curious, what does everyone average a year on vet bills?

My vet is a bit pricier than many in town but he's experienced in sighthounds and very experienced in general. I guess I am paying extra for piece of mind. He also doesn't suggest every test known to man has to be run first to rule things out every time, which is nice.
But it limits how many dogs I feel I can afford to keep. I need to be able to afford those sudden vet emergencies and the more dogs I have, the more chances there are of sudden finance ruining vet emergencies.

I'm amazed at the vast difference in prices in vets, city to city and country to country. So for curiosities sake, how much do you spend roughly?

For me it's about
$70 for a consultation
$380 for spay
$250-$300 for a yearly check up with shots
$130 for flea/heart worm for 6 months for one dog.
