Cats and Vet
The other day, while clipping Kiddis claws, I noticed some big hard chucks of something attached some of of her pads, that she really didn't like having touched. So I called up my vet, and made an appt, and today after gym, came home for her to show up. (My vet does housecalls, only.)

It looks like when the little monsters shattered a food bowl several weeks ago, she cut her pads on the shards, and now she's worrying the scabs instead of letting them heal.

For now, she gets antibiotics and a special topical creme (which she doesnt like having applied (see "doesnt like having them touched", above)). If that doesn't clear them in a few weeks, then she probably has a shard imbedded in her paw, and that's going to be much fun to pull out.

Both Kiddi and Birki are down 3oz, and Sasha is up 3. Sha's skin rash is getting worse. I have to choose now between pregnizone (cheap but scattershot), a blood test (midrange price, midrange effective), or a skin patch test (expensive, gold standard, and 6wk waiting list).

It's so nice, I really don't want to go back to the office.

Who is your vet that does housecalls? And are they affordable? and do they want new clients?
Inquiring minds want to know.

She doesn't cost any more than going to a clinic.
