We got a 4 lb. box of the Honest Kitchen Zeal. It's the most expensive flavor from their product line, but I want to get something that doesn't have chicken, beef, or grains, and was left with not that many options. Thanks to the discount code from the House of Two Bows
, I got a pretty good deal, but also kind of regret not getting a bigger box.
Treats & Chews
We got a pack of the Honest Kitchen Wishes, which is a bit disappointing. Maya loves the taste, but its a bit overpriced and crumbles too easily. I might try out Salmon Ears
next time once we finish this box. Besides Wishes, she also got two Merrick Sausage Dog Treats, which I haven't let her try out yet.
Vet & Medical
Yay for no vet bills this month! We did have to get a new bottle of Claritin, but hopefully we can wean her off of it soon as well.
We've also decided to switch to Comfortis (chewable tablet) for flea prevention, because we've been bathing Maya almost every week and using a topical medication makes it less flexible. Since Comfortis requires a prescription, we took Maya to a weekend vaccine clinic to make the purchase and saved ourselves an office visit at the vet. Even though we were advised to give her one tablet per month, I'm planning to give her only half. She's only 20.4 lb. and the one we got is for 20.1-40 lb. (580mg), which is more than twice the dosage of the 10.1-20 lb. (270mg) tablets. We paid $156 for 12 month supply, but I was able to find a $20 rebate online. If the 12 tablets (expires in May 2015) can last 2 years, it'll be about $5.67 per month, which is less than using Frontline Plus.
Maya got a new harness and a new name tag
. So far we are really satisfied with the purchase.
