You do have to pay a fee when coming in with animals. I don't know if it's usually that much though.
Yes, I also paid the fee which was required by law. It might have been a bit higher, but if I remember correctly it was $14 pesos.
I did make a huge mistake in telling my first Argentine girlfriend about the $100. At the end of our short relationship she told me she was going to have me deported for paying the vet the $100 if I stopped seeing her. That kept me in he clutches for less than another week.
She also told me I would go to jail if I transfered money from the US (to buy an apartment) through a casa de cambio (as opposed to transferring it into the account of her lawyer!!!!). Though I made the transfer about two months after the last time I saw her, I was happy to see (on the receipt for the money) that the transfer had been made through the Banco Nacion and the escibano checked for this at the escritura.
