During that visit, I learned that he had an enlarged heart and water on his lungs.
"Is he on heart worm preventative?" the vet asked.
"Not the conventional kind," I said. "I use Diatomaceous Earth."
"That doesn't work. I'm going to check him for heart worms. That's why his heart is enlarged. I'm sure of it."
I let him run the test knowing my fur-baby had no such thing. Holistic means do work if properly kept up with.
Hair Ball and Sir Poops never had a problem with flea infestations either. A teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in their water bowl kept those critters away plus a bath every other week. One cup of Dawn and one cup of vinegar mixed with equal parts water washed any intruders down the drain. The biggest flea count the two ever had was ONE each.
Anyway, when the vet came back with the heart worm test, he hesitantly announced, "You're lucky. He doesn't have any. But still you should put him on a heart worm preventative."
I shot him a look, and said, "Would you spray your food with Raid?"
"Oh! You're one of them!"
Yeah. I was and still am. My pets deserve the best.
