    Oh, and any reputable vet will be happy to give an estimate BEFORE they do anything costly that wasn't planned for when the appointment was made. Such as x-rays, lab work, etc.

    Other than that, I've...

    Loki is doing well this week. He's regained his appetite, enough that I have stopped supplementing with Carnivore Care for the time being, which in turn means he is less stressed. I've noticed him...

    I scrub them down with plain hot water, and then bake them on the lowest setting of my oven for a few hours. Applewood is safe, and I believe that Oak and Maple are usually OK. Stay away from Pine.
