I buy my dogs' heartworm medicine from the UK because it costs about 1/3 as much as if I buy it from the local vet. I still go to the vet for other stuff, but it's expensive. So now my UK supplier isn't taking orders because they can't guarantee delivery—there aren't enough flights to take the mail. The vet is holding my toes to the fire; since the dogs were in and had their heartworm tests a few months ago they haven't had medication from the clinic so I have to get them tested again before they'll sell me the very expensive medication. $$$ It used to be that if you had a continuous monthly dose and the dog came down with heartworm they would treat the dog for heartworm (free). I haven't gone with that plan for years because I have used a different method (slow-kill) of treating heartworm and because I save so much buying overseas. But they go with the fiction that we're still doing the monthly treatment with them. Oh, well. I'm stuck now.

A care package is ready to go in the mail, and masks are ready to be delivered. I have a sewing operation going in my den and I think that's the next room that gets the super cleaning treatment. I'm enjoying my dust- and clutter-free bedroom from the last concerted cleaning effort. I have to take two of the dogs for heartworm tests this morning. My plate is full.
