Sadie is back!

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

and totally traumatized. I feel so bad for her, she has had a rough week. First with the hair cut we gave her, then with getting spayed, and now with having to wear a cone on her head. Poor girl.

We took her to The Kindness Clinic which is a "low cost" spay and neuter clinic. Low cost spay and neuter here is still so much more expensive than the places in Washington! My mom got Pepper spayed for like $25 dollars, it cost us $110 which is still way less than what vets here charge. The people who worked there were really nice and helpful.

They even showed me this great tip for saving money on Frontline (flea preventative). What you do is you buy the Frontline in the largest size they have (for big dogs) then you measure out the ounces and dose your dogs with the proper amount for their size. The great thing about that is that because of our dogs sizes I can buy 1 box that will last us 3 months for both dogs rather than buying 2 separate boxes for each dog! That is a savings of about $160 a year! So that is going to be a huge money saver! If you would like to do this and are curious what ounces for your dog shoot me an email and I can get the size/ounce list for you!

Oh my goodness! How long does she have to wear it? Pepper didn't have to wear one. I hope she is feeling better, give her a treat from Grammy :) (and Tyson too of course)
