Since then, I've realized our pooches aren't that fragile. They won't shatter. Most of our little scrapes can be healed with simple Neosporin. Miss M has sneezed for the past six years I've owned her...and she's still ok. And we've just gone to being preventative and using Musher's Paw on her feet when she'll be running on asphalt.While we have reduced our vet visits to a degree, I still do find myself heading back to the vet for symptoms that may just be in my head. The time Miss M kept pawing at her face and I thought she might have glaucoma just because she's so bug-eyed. Taking our pooches in for bi-annual elderbull bloodwork. And checking out a lump we just discovered on Miss M"s tush (totally fine!).
Maybe it is just piece-of-mind. But it has become a very expensive piece-of-mind.How do you determine when it is necessary to visit the vet?
Also: The healthy diet we discovered that reduced even more vet visits.
