    Two pairs of work overalls. Crotch went in my last pair today and I had to tuck tape a piece of rag over the hole to stop my pecker from showing.

    I generally do not wear anything underneath them in the summer. So yeah….

    Although reimbursed, flight to Oregon for a week on Monday, rental car, and hotel.

    Looking forward to the trip, not so much all the flight time.

    Annual vet exam and shots for Stella. $520 US - so about $650 CAD. Curious what you pay in NS? This seems high!

    There's the breakdown - the acutal "annual visit" part was a smaller portion - most of it is vaccines, etc.

    ... some of the vaccines are every 3 years. The ear cleaning is a pain in the ass - doodle problem. We had her nails trimmed while we were there - struggling to do that on our own.

    We use a boarder once in a while when we go away somewhere and if her vaccines aren't up to date, they wont take her. It also means extra vaccines like Bordetella.

    Smart to stay on top of them especially in that case.

    Yeah, pretty much no reasonable boarder will take a dog not up to date on vaccines and shit. We can't trim our dogs nails either easily, so Sophie goes for a monthly bath/trim. So that $90 you paid on that bill, we pay monthly lol. There is also the $45 a month for tick/flea meds. So our annual checkups are just vaccines, so its works out to be about $350.

    we do the flea meds as well. And then a regular grooming appointment - doodles so they need an actual haircut. We’re doing that some at home but it never looks great and takes forever.

    this is all x2 with 2 dogs. Good thing they’re cute.

    NexGard for fleas - I don’t know if they do anything for ticks, would have to check the box but ticks aren’t a massive problem here.

    Ticks are starting to get worse here but not in the city at all. We do a lot of hiking and backpacking though - I need to add tick scouting on my list of things we look for when we go - I know I’ve heard it’s worse in certain parts of the state.

    Using Nexguard, but preference was K9 Advantix as it kept the mosquito bites way down. Nexguard doesn't stop those bastards from chewing her up.

    Nexguard has a dewormer though so think next round going to do the Advantix again and get a separate dewormer.

    I haven't treated my dogs for that stuff in a few years. Never really hear about it out here and they don't get into the woods often. But when I did I always used advantage. Never had any issues with either dog. It's the same as advantix, think advantix is just the new version. And yes, definitely helped with mosquito bites.

    Thought I’d put this here instead of starting a new thread - anyone have any ideas or inside info on snagging a car rental in Nova Scotia this summer? I’m getting the “sold out” message everywhere - at the airport, tried near where we’re staying. Even tried Turo (not Truro, the new car rental app).

    Youre an insider in the car industry aren’t you? Hook me up!

    we actually have access to a vehicle through my in-laws but I always feel beholden to them and get eye rolls if I say we’re going to drive anywhere over an hour so was looking to rent for freedom’s sake. I’d heard things were tight but wasn’t expecting no stock a month and a half out!

    $38 for a nail trim and $50 for an ear clean. That stuff adds up quick. I handle nails and wife handles ear cleanings lol
