Flea Treatment For Dogs Girl

I think many people dont realize that getting a pet will be really expensive for them. Once they have a pet, naturally they start loving him/her and want the best for them. But taking a dog to spa, I find bizzare myself too... I think the best for them is just running around somewhere outdoor.




We have 3 cats, but as you are a "dog owner," not "pet parent," we are "cat owners," and girl parents! In fact, we have a vet appointment today; one of our cats is definitely sick and we're worried he ate something. If the vet says yes, he did, and he needs expensive surgery, well, we have 2 kids in college. We simply are not going to be able to spend a couple thousand on our cat, as much as we love him. It will kill me to have to put him down, but that's definitely in the cards. I'm just hoping and praying it's something else.
