Asher Goes to the Vet
Asher went to the vet this morning to get neutered. I first called the vet that I have taken my cats to in the past. The cost was $255 to do the surgery. They told me that Ash would have to stay overnight, and they weren't happy that I had administered his puppy shots. I was to bring my documentation but they would not guarantee they would accept it. I called another vet.
It took me 15 minutes to get his fluffy butt into the car to go this morning, but I finally managed and arrived at "Affordable Vet" just slightly behind schedule.
Asher was a dear sweet boy and they all loved him there. He topped the charts at 93 pounds, which cost me an extra $15 in anesthesia, but he was a trooper. When I came in to pick him up at 4:00 I could recognize his cry from the lobby. At home he's a pretty quiet boy, but he wanted nothing to do with that crate. I called to him in the back room and told him "Mommy's here. It's okay, Ash" and he quieted down.
He is very happy to be home tonight instead of stuck in a kennel and the whole thing including 6 months of Trifexis (heartworm/flea control) cost me only $233.
The thing that really struck me in this whole thing, is how much he really loves me. I've never been a dog person, and to be honest, Asher still is a side affect of the goats. But I love him. And he really, really loves me. And that's pretty cool.
