Ahh....The Dreaded Vet Visit

August 2nd, 2008 at 05:11 am

I'm gonna have to take one of the dogs to the vet today. We just got him and have had him a short time now. I took him in from a divorce situation where he was being neglected. He's been having a problem with one of his ears. I thought he had ear mites so I called the vet and asked if the ear mite stuff at the store would work and they said it would help. Well I bought it and treated him. Well now, it seems that it's gotten worse. Touching the ear and him shaking his head apparently brings pain and he cries. I can't stand to see him like that so we're going to the vet today. I'm not exactly sure how much it's going to cost but I'm going to assume it's not going to be below $60. At least I have cash and won't need to use any c.c's.

On a frugal note though, the Humane Society is having a fundraiser today at local pet supply store where they are offering 3 year rabies vaccines for $10 and other discounted services like nail clipping and flea treatments ect.. The vet here charges about $15 for 1 year. Both of the dogs are due, so I'm going to take both after we make the vet visit. I'm also going to get the new dog a flea/tick treatment for $10. I thought that was a really good deal. Plus, since it's a fundraiser my purchase is considered a donation so I can write it off with my taxes.

    My family did something similar when I was in college. They took in a Chocolate Lab from a divorce situation. He was the BEST dog! Such a sweetheart. He had to be put to sleep earlier this year due to his arthritis getting so bad that he couldn't jump up into the car anymore for his favorite activity "riding", amongst other problems.

    Your new dog will treasure you doubly knowing that you took him in and gave him a loving home.

    I hope whatever is wrong with his ear gets better quickly and easily!
