I went to the vet today for my heartworm medicine and my flea and tick medicine. My dad ended up spending our food allowance for the whole of next month, because I have an ear infection. My dad had to pay for my above meds, my new ear infection meds, $27 for cytology (the vet swabs my ear and looks at it from a microscope, 2 7 D O L L A R S!) and then the vet visit.
My dad thinks we have to starve for a whole month just because I had a bath. My mom thinks that she never had an ear infection in her life because she never goes to the doctor.
His solution: No More Baths!
Her solution: No More Vet Visits!
Life Lesson: Our prejudices color our problems and our solutions. Be aware.
