Bentleys tooth extractions

we are back from Montana! Bentley's teeth went very well! he had two teeth removed and a cleaning Calla had her shots and we found out she has yeast in her ear so was prescribed drops and malacetic wash just wondering if anyone knows if this is the same thing as malasab? (sp) it is odd because Bentley weighs 19.7 lbs and Calla is 17.5 not a big difference in weight and she looks so much smaller then him,the vet and tech had a really hard time getting a swab out of her ear as she was almost…

whitefish montana

we have booked a date for Bentley's  teeth! it will be on April 10th we plan and driving to Whitefish on the good Friday and camp in whitefish we may as well make a little trip out of it, his teeth and kennel cough and 5 way shot are going to cost approx. $550.00 usa with all the meds and pre an blood work  and extra drip I feel really good about bringing him over the boarder but as well wonder why it costs so much here? is it because they think Canadians are rich? really sad that we have to…

USA vets

so I decided to call around in Whitefish Montana for Bentleys teeth extractions and cleaning as I mentioned I was quoted $1500-$1800 here and even checked here at other vets and it is around the same in the US I will pay around $500 including pre an blood work I am just wondering if anyone who lives in Montana  can suggest a good clinic in Whitefish ?

new job!

I am so excited I am leaving the dental field after 12 years! I landed a reception job at a VET CLINIC! yaah! I have been trying to get in for a long time now! big change for me and 40% off vet services! and on another note a rescue got 2  unfixed pugs from a reserve with bad demodex! the foster parent said bad sores and smelly! but at least they were saved and will be fixed when they are better so this is great news altogether they got 100 dogs and pugs from this reserve !

merry christmas

I dont know how it is possible that we will be in +s on christmas day? last year we were -15c low oddly strange we can bbque but the grand news is our 2 hour drive to pick up Calla will be without a difficult drive! even though we bought a sweater for her we have chinooks here which causes the mild weather although the snow melts real fast and gets the cars dirty so tommorow is the big day! I have prepared for her we did not buy  a real tree as who knows what she wil ldo?
