    DefaultFor Christmas Duke and Freckles gave me a $1,300 Vet bill

    I had planned to just board the boys for 4 nights and have their teeth cleaned then Freckles blew out his right knee just a year after blowing out his left knee.
    So here's the breakout.

    For Duke:
    Boarding $50
    Capstar $5
    Dental Cleaning and polishing $95
    Advanced pre-anesthetic blood work $85
    IV catheter and fluid $20
    Skin tag removal $30 (he had a small growth on his upper left eyelid removed)

    For Freckles:
    Boarding with medication $66
    Capstar $5
    Dental cleaning and polishing $95
    Blood work $85
    IV catheter and fluid $20
    Cruciate repair surgery $600
    Surgical anesthesia $69
    Polyflex 200mg/cc $15
    Rimadil injection $15
    Tramadol HCL 50 mg $9.80
    Clavamox tablets 375 mg $44.48
    Grand Total $1,309.48

    The boys now have bright smiles and Freckles is recovering nicely.

    As an added Christmas bonus we returned from our Christmas visit to Louisiana with my brothers small dog Maggie. He is recovering from treatment for a a non-malignant brain tumor and the meds he is taking make it difficult for my brother and my SIL to care for Maggie right now so we volunteered to take care of her until my brother has recovered.

    Maggie has adapted quite well to country life and the boys. She has made Duke revert to a second puppy hood. Here is a short video clip of them playing. You can see Freckles at the beginning of the clip being a couch spectator to the match.

    Yikes! That is not a very Merry Christmas for you. I sure hope he recovers well from his surgery.

    Sorry about the vet bill, I got one of those too! Rush is 11 post surgery for her knee and is doing beautifully. I hope your Freckles gets along beautifully as well. I love the quiet bitey face. At our house bity face so noisy.
