Ok, just went and picked Ace up and he looks butchered. I took some pics and will post them later, I want to see what everyone else thinks about it. I'm probably just being a paranoid and overly protected mother, but hey who isnt right?? And about the price thing, vets are so unpredictable with prices, which I can see why they are. so I always add 100 or so to thier estimated price, just so it's not a total shock to me. quoted me at $277, actually was $307, not to big of a difference.
