Pet owners listen up: You may want to start saving more money for veterinarian care this year. The reason goes all the way back to Washington and an unintended consequence from medical reform. Dog owner Lori Heiselman was surprised where her veterinarian posted a warning on Facebook. The notice read: “Because medical equipment and supplies will be going up in cost, that extra expense will have to passed on to the customers.”
Comments: How many vets will be put out of business because they won´t be able to afford the higher cost of dual use devices unless they pass on those costs to their clients? Can we say 0bama wants to kill your family pet?
Obama didn´t just want death panels for humans- he wanted to destroy your pets health care also. You think if he did not care about people did you think he would care about animals. The cost of bringing a pet to a veterinarian can run far more than you your own doctor visit, assuming you have insurance. Obama cares only about increasing the size of Government, spending your tax money, and increasing your taxes to pay for all his delusions.
We might as well face facts. This administration is going to bleed us dry so he can give everyone inferior "free" medical care. It will only be a matter of time before our paychecks will be deposited straight into obama´s bank account. Then king obama will send us back what he thinks we need. Between the SCOTUS and the idiots who voted for the boobs in DC we don´t stand a chance. Life as we knew it is over.
CONGRATULATIONS MIAMI!! Not only did you vote FOR this, ya´ll repeated your mistake and voted for it again in 2012.
We tried to tell you! But no....you were all dazzled by promises of free taxpayer funded freebies. If you voted for Obama and his cohorts of socialists, you forfeitted ANY right to complain about the results now. Elections have consequences and you all made that bed for all of us.
As the Obama Depression deepens, any animal that cannot provide a meal, or ingredients for one (eggs, milk etc.) will have to be sacrificed. Muslims don´t like dogs, and cats are too independent. Don´t you just love the Boy Tyrant?
When the the obamabots who do take their pets tto the veterinarian and see how expensive it has become, they will just surrender the pets to shelters, or worse. Why don´t democrats ever, ever, ever think things through?
There are some ways you might be able to save on vet care. For instance, if you have a pet with hyperthyroidism, you know that the tapazole (generic methimazole) is not cheap. Not all states require vets to give you a prescription to fill at a lower cost elsewhere but vets can be persuaded to do so--find a vet who will. (See http://www.zzcat.com/CRF/supplies/#Refuse ) I use Walgreen´s for our cats´ prescriptions and use a store prescription card to get an even better deal--it gives me methimazole at less than half the usual price. Ask your vet to write the prescription to enable you to refill when you want (therefore allowing you to stock up before shortages begin occurring).
I also buy my LRS for fluid administration at Walgreen´s--a case of 12 @ 1000cc for less than $30. Go to link above and scroll up for info on online sites and other info re fluids and other CRF supplies.
Winged infusion sets, needles and syringes may be difficult to obtain sometimes. Although South Carolina permits the purchase of such supplies without a prescription, many pharmacies have a policy against it. If you don´t want or can´t get a prescription for those supplies, you´ll find sites which will sell them to you IF your state permits it (like Thrivingpets.com, where you can also buy essential Azodyl or the preferred Renadyl for your CRF pets).

Just so folks know, there is health insurance for pets. The one we use is VPI, but there are others. The premiums are not inexpensive, and the copays exist, so those without extra money may not be able to afford this type of insurance. It serves us well in the long run as we use it for our pet bird, and we can afford to buy this insurance.
A nuclear arms race is now arising in the Middle East, starting with an Iranian nuke, then a Saudi and Egyptian one. Nobody knows the end game. Obama´s biggest legacy may be worldwide instability for years to come. This administration is coming to an end. If you take away its corruption and thuggery, its constant scapegoating, its weird cast of characters, its astronomical spending, its drone killings of terrorists who were supposed to be dead last year, and its healthcare debacle -- everything comes down to imperial overreach.
ObamaCare was sold to the nation as a compassionate response to the approximately 47 million uninsured Americans. Yet, 30 million Americans will still not be insured even after the frenetic misrepresentation and bribery required to pass the bill and the botched rollout. Plus, the policies of millions of insured Americans are being cancelled and replaced with HHS "approved" policies that have higher premiums. Then, following the wipeout in the individual market, millions of Americans currently covered by employer-provided plans will have their policies cancelled because they are deemed inadequate and unacceptable under the ObamaCare regulations issued by HHS.
Muslims groups around the world are crying Islamophobia and playing the victim card as horrific Islamic-motivated crimes, such as grooming and rape-gangs, rage on with impunity throughout the Western world, especially in Europe. Rape or grooming gangs, which are almost entirely Muslim, are committing a crime that is religiously mandated in Islamic doctrine. Muslim grooming gangs have been operating unchallenged in Europe for over 20 years, especially in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and France.
I am one who steers very clear of tinfoil hat conspiracy theories. I often believe progressives plant stories in order to distract and disrupt, enabling them to pursue their true goals and objectives. That’s why I stress the importance of staying focused on the modern liberal socialist policies of the Obama administration, not the sideshow antics. However, as a former combat commander, I have been trained to look for trends. And I believe we’ve found a very disturbing one. It seems that backdoor gun control is in full effect in the United States.
Wake up, Mom and Dad: your government has its paws all over your children during school hours -- always figuratively, and too often literally. If parents are taken out of the education equation completely, something will fill the vacuum. And that something is bound to be the police state. When kids in Brazil, Indiana participated in a mock drug raid at Clay County Courthouse as part of the annual October Red Ribbon Awareness week, they got a lesson in what it´s like to live in a police state.
Comrade Obama and the Politburo, both conveniently located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, are in the midst of overhauling the nation´s military. Radically so, as befits the nation´s most radical president. Downsizing the armed forces is the cover, in part. The people´s savior is giving the heave-ho to military brass who can´t quite get with the program, which might be described as inflicting a smothering political correctness on the nation´s armed forces. Political correctness is actually too charitable.
It has been disclosed in a recently published book about the 2012 campaign, Double Down by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, that the president told aides that he is "really good at killing people" with drones. I think the president is being far too modest. Drones aren´t the half of it. He´s really good at killing lots of things. With ObamaCare, he is killing the most effective healthcare system in the world.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
