The numbers of pets that are now on medications has grown substantially for us and keeping track of who gets what, how many times per day, and in some cases not one but three or four different pills, can be time consuming. We realise that these medications are certainly not cheap and therefore it is important that we get it right for you. This requires planning, storage and clear instructions passed on. In the case of ear or eye drops it can also mean the need for a second person to assist if the dog is not keen on the idea. Insulin needs to be refrigerated, and many tablets are accompanied by pate, peanut butter, mince, cheese – whatever the owner uses as a bribe – we have to do as well.
A flat charge of $2.00 per day for all dogs that come with medications to be given.
