Velcro went in for her re-evaluation yesterday, the vet said she looked "one hundred times better" regarding herpes than the last time she came in; we think it was a combination of the antibiotics, diet, lysine, and the fact that we moved out our two drama queen renters---which was hard because the one was blood related family and the police refused to help when my mother said she wanted to evict them because they were causing serious problems. The vet said that she has very little congestion and that the herpes may very well be dormant now.
I'm still going to see if the shelter will do it because a friend of mine paid to have her altered, and I don't want to waste her money. It's not about the cost of a spay since my income has improved now, it's that I don't want my friend thinking she's been ripped off. Though if the humane society won't do it I'll be sending a money order for the cost of the spay at the shelter to my friend and then have her spayed through VCA animal hospital, which is where her vet works.
