Health Care for Dogs

If only human medicine could be administered as efficiently...

We've been to the vet in Bagnols-sur-Cèze twice now. Roxy is thoroughly enjoying being an indoor/outdoor pet new that we have a large yard for her to lay in. First, we thought she picked up a fungus, which turned out to be nothing; then she got a tic. Apparently, these insects burrow under the skin, creating a cyst, and feed off the hosts blood.

Fortunately, every day after 5:00, the local vet has open visitations without an appointment. The cost of the visit is only about $35, without insurance - yes, this is also an option in France. So while everyone but Roxy would prefer to make fewer trips to the vet, at least it's not costing us an arm and a leg.
