This time, just for a checkup. Turns out I've been negligent and have not taken her back for her annual dermatology checkup in over 2 years. oops.
Cleo has serious allergies, which the fabulous vets at UC Davis have treated successfully with diet and flea medicine modification. She's on a kangaroo-oatmeal diet (no more homemade food for the pug), and on a daily flea medicine called Capstar.
Why go into this? because Capstar in the past year has, through some fancy patent footwork, gotten super-greedy, thus skyrocketing the cost of a single pill from less than $1 to over $3. Totally ridiculous! I said. I'm switching to a cheaper flea med! I said. well, that was a big mistake. Poor pug broke out in a terrible itchy rash, and now she's back on Capstar. Teach me to try and save a buck. or two. or a few hundred.
|mama. u cheaped out on me.|
Of course, I had to bring all 3, because when I tried to sneak out of the house with just Cleo, Deedee and Sasha put up some serious wailing and caterwauling.
|my fans would've missed me|
All three were totally focused on any treats that were coming their way. Luckily for them there were a lot of them. UC Davis is definitely on the short list for these pugs.
|is that the door? is that a treat?|
