All about life, ups and downs, as we wait for the return.

I took a trip to the vet the other day because my retriever was acting funny. He kind of had this limp and wined whenever I tried to pet him like he was in pain. I stopped going to our last vet because he was way overpriced. I knew the general location of this new vet so I jumped in the car and drove there. If wasn't for the clear signage on the street I would have probably passed this place up. I pulled in and took my dog in where I was greeted by a nurse wearing jockey medical uniforms immediately. They took him to the back and started looking him over while I filled out those medical forms I hate so much.

After several minutes of waiting the doctor came out and notified me that my dog had a tumor that was causing the pain. The only thing he could do at that moment was to prescribe some pet meds. I don't have pet insurance so I was back home to research on the web where I could get ped meds cheap. I found several places that offer discounts but many of them don't have a great selection. The long-term plan is to have the tumor removed but that will have to wait a little while because of the cost. My dog is a member of the family so letting him go without surgery is out of the question. I am sure some of you out there understand.
