So we took Whiskey to the vet yesterday afternoon. She needed her rabies shot updated for her to be able to enter the U.S. next month.
But if it weren't for that rule, we wouldn't have had it done.
They were also supposed to do a whole bunch of other booster shot type of things as well, but we declined those. I mean, she's 15 years old and with a bad heart. It seems to me that the stress she experiences in going to the vet does her more harm than whatever the vet is supposed to be doing that is good.
Anyhow, all we wanted was the rabies shot. But it is apparently required by law (I haven't researched the logic behind this) that an examination has to be done in order to do the rabies shot.
So the rabies shot is only $20 or so. But the final bill was $115. Okay, whatever. Odds are very good it'll be the last one because it's good for three years.
But, other than the problems we know about, the vet said she's doing very well for her age.
Today, we're off to Red Pine Camp. This is a family camp that we've been going to since my parents originally brought us there in 1964. My sister and nephew are up there for this week so we're going to go spend the day with them by the lake. And, it's a beautiful blue sky and expected high of 27C (81F) so it should be a great day!
