It was a big day for our dogs Princess and Cricket. They got to meet their new Veterinarian and get updated on their shots. Poor dogs, they get so excited to get to go in the car, and then as we get closer to the vets office they are as nervous as cats in a room full of rocking chairs!
It probably looked like the circus was coming to town when I was trying to get the dogs out of the car and not lose my purse, glasses or phone. I only dropped my glasses. Twice. Of course the girls had to bolt to the nearest tree and sniff and pee. After that they were a bit easier to manage.
Both dogs were tested for heart worms and thankfully they are negative. My foster pups are heart worm positive and they have to take pills twice a day for 60 days. For two office visits ( both dogs) exam, blood work, two shots each and a monthly heart worm preventative they charged me $250.00.
I thought that was pretty good! I called around and other vets wanted big bucks just for an office visit. I will go back next month and get their monthly preventative for heart worms, probably enough until the end of the year. That will be about 15.00 dollars a month. At the end of the year, they will both be getting their 3 year rabies shot.
Both dogs were exhausted after all that excitement and we all had to come home and take a power nap!
Here is what else I did today!
