I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Big Seig goes to the Vet

I took Little Seig to the Vet yesterday. At 5 months and 4 days of age, he weighed in at 52 lbs.  He is now called Big Seig.  One of the things they did was his prep blood work for his surgery.  That's right, he's going to have his little jewels removed, which, even now that he's known as Big Seig, are still fairly little.  Which is why they're being removed.  We don't want them to grow much bigger.  The total bill for his visit was over $322, of that, the blood work cost $66.  The most expensive charge was for 6 months of Frontline.  With so many people giving me advice on which is better (Advantage, Advantix, and Frontline) why did I go with the Frontline?  I had a coupon, so I thought I'd be getting a deal, eight months for the price of 6.  Hell No!

Big Seig at 5 months and 5 days

  You see, I had the Amazon cost of Frontline running though my head, not the Vet cost.  You see on Amazon I can get 6 months for $67.  The Vet charged me $96.99.  No deal there.  Which is why I almost always buy either the Frontline or the Advantix through Amazon.  Now I don't mind spending money on my dogs, I do, however there should be a little bit more of a 'fair market value' in the health products they sell.
Anyway, after his jewel removal, his visits should be much less expensive.
