Five ONE TIME syringes, manufacturers cost probably 1/10th of one red cent. Discounted price: $ 10 EACH. Yes.....that is for EACH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Insulin injection twice a day for the rest of his life.

Having your Best Buddy Back Home:

Oh my goodness, Gracee is on daily meds but it only costs me about $75 a year. Poor little pupcakes,

ginger said...

Aw, sweet Max!!

Are you serious about the syringe cost?? For a...syringe? $10/ea??

Are these the same as human insulin syringes?


Rhonda the Stitchingnut said...

Aaaaaaah. Poor thing. But nice to be back home.

grace said...

Poor baby! Poor wallet! He looks so sweet.

Beck said...

I'm so glad Max is home and doing better! He's so adorable and sweet. And like Grace said, Poor Darlene's wallet though. Yikes. Oh well, that's what money is for right? To spend it on the ones we love.

Sara said...

I couldn't agree with you more! When my little White Kitty had thyroid problems I took her to Auburn for radioactive iodine therapy. It cost a mint, but I had two more years with her.

Ahh...Sara...a woman after my own heart....I would have done the very same thing!!!

With the cost of the medicine for poor Max, we'll have to start a collection box for the "yarn collector" because she will not have funds to support her habit :)

Darlene, I hope that Max's new drug bill has not caused your sweet wheel to be pawned! I am so sorry about Max, and glad that he is home. Have you made any headway on the new spinning wheel?

Emily said...

Oh poor Max who wants shots twice a day forever?! I am glad they figured out what was wrong and that he's back home all sweet and sound.
