I knew today's visit to the veterinarian would be pricey. Such visits always are. Still, this was a new record.
So how bad? Well, first, let's go over what we had done:
-2 dogs (Bernice & Mandy) had their tune-ups (lube & oil and rotate the paws). Dodger isn't due yet.
-All three dogs had their teeth cleaned.
-All three dogs were sent home with antibiotics, as they always get after getting their teeth cleaned. Dogs need that precaution after cleanings.
-Two dogs got their boxes of Sentinel (monthly anti-heartworm (and other things) pills.
Since we have three dogs, we get a discount for bringing them all in. The grand total? After our 10% discount... $1,700!!!
Yes, $1,700. We spend more on their healthcare than we do on our own! *sigh*
Well, I'd be heartbroken if any of them got sick, so I guess it's worth it.
Now I just have to figure out how to scrape together $1,700 before the credit card bill gets here!
