Vet to Mariah Carey -- You Owe 30K for Doggy Style

6/23/2010 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mariah Carey ran up a $38,000 tab with a veterinarian who claims she cared for MC's pups 24/7 and even delivered one of 'em ... this according to a lawsuit filed by the vet.

0624_mariah_getty
Dr. Cindy Bressler sued Mariah in Manhattan yesterday -- and in the suit she says she provided "extraordinary services" for three of Mariah's Jack Russell terriers ... Cha-Cha, Dolomite and JJ.  Bressler claims she's only been paid $8,000 of the 38K bill.

Dr. Bressler's attorney tells TMZ the vet was in charge of grooming and feeding the doggy divas while Mariah was in L.A. promoting "Precious."  According to the attorney, Bressler also brought tiny Dolomite into this world -- delivering the pup last year.

Mariah's rep says the singer's legal team is unaware of the lawsuit.

Yeah it does seem a bit pricey. This vet obviously caters to celebrities and makes house calls. At any rate, Mariah's got $38K in her back pocket.

I have 5 dogs and spend about 3 grand a year. I thought my dogs were spoiled.

It actually isn't that much when you calculate the full impact of the costs.



Normal house sitting for pets in NYC is like $80 a day per pet. So right there that is $240 a day just in normal house sitting fees.
Full boarding in NYC at a place with a vet, and will full grooming, is like $120 a day per pet...so that's like $360... a day. Full vet car for a female dog and puppy, if the female dong had complications runs about a $1,000-$2,000 for the day with supportive care.
Let's imagine that the dogs were left with care for a month, and the dog had some complications... that could easily be $38K...with grooming and supportive care for the bitch and pup.

Ge, I thought taking care of her dogs would have been the job of her flunky husband/valet Nich Canon?

Oh Brother.....    

Why does it seem like celebrities can be the CHEAPEST when it comes to paying for services? This broad probably spends more on SHOES in a month! Difference is......THEY HAVE TO pay the retail stores before they can have the product. Even for services, the average folk has to PAY before they leave the premises. This vet should have collected on the spot. NO MORE BILLING THESE CELEBS! I heard that some of them leave the WORST TIPS, even when a server breaks their neck to wait on them. What a shame!
