The world's an oyster? Well, that explains the smell...
Well, I actually found Yogi's water pictures. You know, where he's actually in the water? Yay!
In exasperating vet-news: I got a call from them, and it was no other than the head-honcho. Apparently, the Lupron shots Pixie and Yogi got? Too weak to serve as a potential preventative for adrenal disease.
Their reasoning? Well, the new shots did not prevent birds from laying eggs. The old shot formulation of about a year ago did. So, since birds are still laying eggs, my guys have to go in and get another shot--this time of the old lupron.
But, hey, it's free for Pixie and Yogi, so no biggie. At least for Sian's first shots she'll have company. And, once again, I made it abundantly clear that in no way, shape or form is she going to have both a distemper booster and a rabies vaccine in the same visit. The receptionist made a note, so I'm hoping the doctor's know how to read *g*.
So, the total this time will be $184. Not bad.
Overall, I'm happy. The ferts were angels in the cage (I know, I couldn't believe it, either). Before bed, Yogi kicked around a ping pong ball, so that tuckered him out enough to just sleep. And the baby was, I'm guessing, still traumatized over actually being DISCIPLINED.
Worked for me :)
