Me, too, but I think it comes from experience. A lot of store brands just aren't as good. And although the name brands might make them, doesn't mean that they make them as good. Case in point, Kroger. There's Kroger brands and then there's Kroger Private Selection. The Private Selection is usually pretty good, but costs as much as the name brand. The regular Kroger brand - eh.

yeah, I think thats true....dunno if my mom actually ever tried others - not that there were many 'others' back then - our groc store was a shur-fine (sp?) so that was the only 'generic' brand available. I remember when the generic no-name fad hit - the plain old black and white labels that simply said what it was....

Hi Lynnie!
Took ratties to the vet. I hope dogs don't cost more because they are bigger!
Something I wasn't even bothered by worried her.
So off to the lab went a poo, even though I don't think it was the right rat's poo.

These little guys are getting expensive!

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

I'm sitting here trying to figure this out.
The vet gave me a script for the meds.
The drug store give it to me and says, this is 40 days of meds, but you have to throw them away after 10 days.
AAAAAAAARRRGGHHHH
2 rats for 20 days = 40 days of meds, but the drug store mixed it all instead of giving me 1/2 at a time.
Well....4 bottles because they didn't know it was two rats, not just one.

The vet said use it for 12 days then use what I had at home
One rat needed 5 days worth the first time because they started at different times.
The girl at the vet gave me 20 days split into two bottles.
So I mixed one bottle and gave each rat more meds until the bottle ran out.
I have a bottle not mixed.

But I was giving .30. This time I am giving .50
So, I'm going to have to buy more meds.

The ratties cost me $215 today and I'm not done!
Should have bought gerbils. They don't grab the bars of the cage and look at you.
Part of that was a poo going to the lab, but I think it is the wrong rats poo. Vet figured what one rat has, the other has too.

PLUS, no people food.
Trying to find out if it was food giving one guy the watery poo.

Now at least three times a day they will be heartbroken about no people food.
Hubby gives them a flake of cereal and a little carrot slice when he gets up.
I give them oatmeal when I get up. Sometimes banana.

At night they get some fruit and veggies after woot time, when they are waking up.

I was being good! Only rat approved people food! It was all on the list of foods they should be supplementing the pellets with!

stupid pets.

I should really smack the drug store guy!
Rats don't have insurance! I paid full price for the drug. The drug I'm going to have to buy again.
You would think they would at least have split it into two bottles. How hard is it to add the water.

I use to give them the meds in the morning when I got up, but since they mixed it and I was going to stretch it 2 days more anyway, I decided to give it to them at night.

Copied from PWA:

Just had an eye appointment. Stupid peripheral vision test. Haven't had one of those in five years and I really dislike them. You have to press a button when you see a white flash, but after a while you forget to watch for them. Fortunately, it was normal, as was the optic nerve pictures and the pressures. I'm getting trifocals. Wish me luck.

I am ready to smash my trifocals! I've had them for years, but this year they are bothering me. Mostly the reading, it is a very small sweet spot.
The dr said the new ones are better.
He wouldn't let me try new ones because the perscription didn't change and they cost so much.
But I might go back and get them anyway.
Or maybe bifocals if they can make them without the line. But I can't see the laptop with my reading glasses. Just a few inches too far.

yer rats are lucky lil rats - their mama loves them

most pocket pets go their entire lives without seeing a vet - ever

can't believe the drug store did that - I'd call and ask to speak to the pharmacy mngr/head pharmacist.....and ask your vet who the pet-friendly pharmacists are in your area. We have two local compounding pharmacies that are amazing with the scripts we call in for critters.
