Whew thank God for insurance. The bill for the short ambulance ride was near 2900 US dollars ! And the short check up and observation in Emergency was just a hair over 3500 bucks too. That's over six grand for fainting and having the doc take a few blood tests !! No wonder health care in the US is a "sick" baby.

With insurance I had to pay 50 for the emergency room and I think 25 dollars for the ambulance ride. Just think without?

With his mommie home in Indonesia for home visit, its just me and the bear. And he prefers to hang around outside all day:

So if anyone doesn't know that I am cheap? I am cheap! Wifey blew her savings early and had to reschedule coming home two weeks early. That meant she couldn't get back to SFO as planned due to there not being any cheap seats left. Luckily she could fly to LAX on the A380 for just a fifty buck change fee. So we did that. I was going to stick her on Southwest for the LAX to SFO hour long flight for 160 bucks. But then I thought she's never been outside of LAX and she would be tired and have to get her stuff out of the international terminal and walk all the way round to the other side to the terminal Southwest uses and all that. And besides I have not driven down to LA TWO car ownerships ago! Something like over 12 years. So i thought why not drive down?

So i got me bud to go with me . Two drivers, 7 hours drive down and 7 hours back with quick breaks several times each way. 800 miles in one day. Was quite a drive !. I-5 is boring as hell. Straight two lanes each side. Slow lane basically hogged by trucks in an endless row. Speed must be kept under 80 lest Smokey gets ya for speeding.

And then the 405 to LAX is just a frickin nightmare !

She is FLYING BACK next time.

Shes tired of long distance flying now too after 3 trips back in 3 years. She said, hey I will not go back for four years but I want to fly biz class !! Which is four times more expensive.

I would like to fly the A380 before the thing goes extinct too. Not a lot of chances to fly one.

Still waiting for the ten year green card . I think nobody's looked at her file yet. Just like the fiance application. Took ten months before someone actually even read her file !

After she gets her ten year greenie, I think i may post on this thread only when we have some REAL adventures at least of some note ! Like some cool trips to hawaii or las vegas or something. Doing vegas in October. Hawaii? Depends if i win a trip or something.

Ok, just for you and the other three (possibly) readers of my posts :)

Little update on Vaccination and Vets in Ahmerica.

Getting tired of seeing one of the most expensive vets around these parts. Good service and all but whopper of a bill.
Gendut's doc for the last three years always charged around 380 dollars for a check up and annual shots for the little guy. And then he charged another 700 or more for getting his teeth cleaned and some taken out (poor little guy).

So this year, I decided to take Gendut to the local SPCA for his shots. This was where I always took Smudgey.

Smudgey never did cost me too much money. In Taiwan the vets were really very reasonable . But they are NOT reasonable in the USA. Absolutely NOT so.

I think I spent maybe 2000nt a year on Smudgey's shots at his Taiwan vet , and includes a check up. I think also a blood test or two. In the USA, as he was always very healthy cept when he was dying that I never spent much money on vet bills. Cost 500 to have him cremated and his ashes buried in a pet cemetery in Napa. Where Tommy my other cat was also buried. Tommy and Smudgey came to Ahmerica with me in 99.

Here I think its anywhere from 200 bucks and up for a couple of blood tests , a quick look over and annual shots. Depending on the vet.

And I don't recall needing annual booster shots even.

So a lot of people who have pets here get their shots from the weekend clinics at the local pet stores. I think they are very reasonable, something like 50 bucks or something.

IF the pet needs a physical with blood tests, you have to go to a vet and get fleeced.

Smudgey got the SPCA treatment the ten years he lived in the USA. And I don't even recall going there annually? I don't really think he needed shots annually even?

So , long story short. The local Martinez SPCA has a nice little clinic here. Used to be drop in daily except Sunday. Now the clinic is by appointment and only on Saturday. So wifey took him in last Saturday . It was all very easy and fast.

Funny thing was , for some reason they seem to want to get a lot of personal details about you first? I called up and they asked if I was a local resident (probably the local SPCA only provides shots for local cats and dogs?). She looked up my info and talked about Smudgey and all that and then I was IN. Appt set up. And now Whopper has a file with them too.

Was only 55 bucks ! Rabies shot and some sort of combi shot was less then 20 bucks and the rest was made up of inserting a microchip into Gendut. Now I have to go to some website to register and I think theres a fee, will post later how much. And the shots are good for three years. Don't need an annual booster at all. I had seemed to remember not needing annual boosters. I guess they only boosted the vets income.

This way the little rascal if ever lost and turned into an SPCA can be returned to us as they will call us.

Dogs have to be chipped and licensed in California. Forget how much, maybe something like 30 bucks a year or some such. It's optional for Cats.

Always good to have your pet microchipped though because if they do get lost and taken to an animal rescue center they could get reunited with you.

The chip is like a kernel of rice in size and they put it between the shoulder or something like that. A bit painful inserting but otherwise should be fine. Smudgey had one even though he was strickly indoors. Whopper Gendut is also strickly indoors but he does slip out now and then.

Glad to hear Whooper will get a chip. The law was amended recently in Taiwan. It used to be only dogs were obligatory to have a chip/be registred. Now all pets, including cats, must have a chip/registered, or else you get a fine.

My pets got special cremation/burials so it was very expensive. Blood tests can be well over 2000 ntd now. Vaccinations and chip should be about 3000 ntd. There are cheaper services but that SPCA rate is really sweet. Now mine are very old and they are basically at the vet weekly, so I spend a lot on them.
Lo urgente no deja tiempo para lo importante. Mafalda.

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.
