Got hammered at the vet yesterday. Took Charlee for his last puppy visit. Got his normal round of shots, plus he needed bloodwork to make sure everything is okay to get him neutered next month. He's still itching all the time, has been since we got him. Tried antihistimine, cream rinse and changing his food. Lately he's been chewing on his heels and elbows and there's bald spots. So the vet did a skin scrape on those areas (another charge)and it turns out he has a genetic mite. On top of that his ears are slightly red despite cleaning them. So we got ointment for the ears, combo heartworm, flea and mite medication and an antibiotic. $300 later, we went home. Wonder if there's any chores I can have him do around here to work it off. LOL!

They can be expensive little guys. But it's worth it for those kisses and cuddles.

They are expensive little things, but so worth it. Jersey just had her annual checkup to the tune of about $170 or so. She's worth every penny though. My Amber had lots of health issues and probably cost me $12-15,000 over the course of her life. I used to tell her she'd become worth her weight in gold...literally!

Just got a call from the vet and Charlee's stool sample came up with worms again. He really needs to stop eating the rabbit poop in the yard! So I've got to pick up another medication. Starting to look like a pharmacy in my kitchen!

With four dogs, and a cat, I actually budget a monthly amount for vet care, meds, etc. If we're lucky, we don't go over the budgeted amount.

I completely understand!! They can definitely be costly. We've had some health issues with Daisy that have cost a pretty penny. I always tell her she's lucky she's cute!!
