that holistic vet that we went to? rip off.
that $300 nutrition consultation? the special, customized diet designed specifically for piglet?
it was ONE RECIPE that was made with a premix called balanceIT. literally. it was lamb, sweet potato, fish oil, and balanceIT powder.
it was like i paid $300 for a fucking advertisement.
so we didn't do that. we made a different raw recipe. i bought all my own supplements - fish oil, taurine, vitamins, all that crap. i ground up raw chicken thighs, chicken livers, and small chicken hearts. which was slightly devastating to me.
and the cats like it. it's nutritionally balanced, it isn't made with a premix, and it didn't cost $300.
i took piglet for her 4th acupuncture appointment today. it's $62 a session instead of $172. and it's less than 10 minutes away with traffic, not 40 minutes away. i'm hoping to get piglet's blood drawn by another vet within the next week or so to see where we're at. i've decided that i'm basically going to suck it up and just go to a local vet that's not an idiot and refuse to discuss nutrition.
now, the smell of the raw food is making me sick. literally. and i'm very nervous about raw chicken and my stupid immune system. awesome husband @_antgas and i are considering cooking the food next time. at least it will still be home cooked and i will have control over what's in it.
in other non-cat news, next week is my last week of interning. i'll be a full fledged alcohol and substance abuse counselor come june 2nd. i'm super excited. i've been decorating my office and buying twelve step books and all types of awesome shit. very exciting.
i've been very tired recently, not sure if it's my RA or if i'm just beating myself up too much. or working too hard. or something. ugh.
at least my cats are healthy.
