margotvankapelle: (cats)
I took Odin to the V-E-T today for a checkup now that he's been on thyroid treatment for...uh...however long he's been on thyroid treatment.  He's gained 3 pounds and his fur is starting to fill back out.  The bad news is that we cannot afford to keep feeding Odin the Science Diet y/d thyroid diet that my little dude's been on -- the stuff is $25 for a 4 (!) pound bag, and I found Frank eating it a few days ago, so that partly explains why the supply has been getting low pretty quickly.

The good news is that the thyroid medication the vet though would run about $70 a month?  Is actually $22.83 a month.  And the tablets are chewable, so it's more a of a treat and less of a "burrito the cat and pray that I can find the stupid tablet when he spits it out" sort of ordeal.

So yay!  Odin is doing better, and getting fatter, and we'll be going to the cheaper (and more effective) thyroid treatment for our boy!

(Odin was pretty pleased with this vet visit too -- no thermometer in the butt!)
