Vet bills can be expensive. Today Princess got an exam, her ear flushed out and cleaned, an antibiotic shot, a steroid shot, and a "cold laser treatment" (whatever that is) and liquid antibiotics for a week. It may be a simple infection, in which case it will get better, or it may be a polyp in her ear, in which case it will not get better. I was at work and did not go to her appointment with Bob. She already seems to be feeling better. So that is the latest that I know. I do not know if I will get called in to work this week any more or not. We shall see. I kind of am looking forward to some "normal time". Between working in the days and chasing car parts and stuff in the evenings, I am exhausted. And way behind on myLot.

lol I think you will need to do a lot of Mylotting to earn that amount, but when our pets need something we find the money don't we lol

She has always been pretty healthy, except for when I first got her, and the flea killer I used on her put her into seizures. I am not sure what caused her to get this ear infection.

I plan to visit the big city in maybe 2 weeks time, I hope I can make enough to add to my allowance. Hotel stay would not be a problem as there is always a place to stay, only some allowance and roundtrip plane ticket.

Yes, me too. She has not been an expensive cat to keep, ever, so we had to give it a try.

I think that the Vet bills are the most expensive part of having a pet. I hope that Princess will get well soon.

It certainly is. Princess has been an easy care cat most of her life.

@LadyDuck Princess is sixteen. I am not sure that the ear infection is the only problem. We may know more on Thursday.

Actually, the cold laser evidently helps with that. She does not usually mind riding in a vehicle, but she does not like when people hold her down against her will.

Yes, we are hoping it is an ear infection and not something that would require surgery.

At least we think she will be okay. I hope it is not a polyp inside her ear canal.

She likes to go snuggle with Bob at the end of the day and sleep on his side of the bed for a while.

I have always been shocked at the vet's prices. Have you looked into the pet insurance?

No, I have not looked into pet insurance. I do not feel it would be worth it for us. Princess is old for a cat and either she will get better or we will keep her comfy while she passes. She is scheduled for a follow up tomorrow. I am not convinced that the ear is the major problem. I suspect something is in her throat, as well.

I wish I had the time to go to the appointments, but they are on the days I have been scheduled to work, so Bob takes her. She has most of the time been Bob's cat anyway, and still prefers him.

Lily is going to see a new vet tomorrow. This clinic is only for cats. I'm giving her some calming stuff today and tomorrow to see if it works. She is just getting her shots and maybe microchipped.

This "cold laser" treatment I looked up says it is supposed to calm them and also relieve pain.
