Why don't puppies disappear when I'm tired?

Ugh gotta love the look the vet tech just gave me when I argued vaccines with her and told her I do limited vaccines and that I don't put flea/tick meds on my dogs. She looked at me like I just told her I kick puppies. Oy vey. She told me that my dog's chances of getting sick are higher and that the only effective flea/tick treatment are topical flea and tick medication. Umm no. I use food grade DE on my dogs and have never had issues with fleas or ticks.

Also not happy that they just took my dog in the back to do her bloodwork. I'm not sure why they can't pull blood with me in the room? I can hear her in the back crying anytime they try to do something and I'm not happy about it.

Ugh it got better... The actual vet came in and lectured me further about the vaccines and the fact that I won't use a topical flea/tick preventative like frontline, etc. I finally had to stop her and said, "look I appreciate your concern, but she is my dog and I'll decide what is best for her. I'm not budging on that stuff and I use DE to prevent fleas/ticks and have never had an issue in the years I've been using DE."

Is this a new vet clinic? Sounds like it's a really poor fit. If you'd like to stick with it, bring a copy of the AAHA recommendations on vaccines next time.

I do find that saying "I'm following the American Animal Hospital Association vaccine schedule." seems to smooth things over a bit so they know you're not just being cheap and not giving vaccines. I have no idea why they'd care about flea/tick stuff either. It's not like you're not giving heartworm prevention!

My vet clinic's tech did a little halfhearted arguing when I asked them to switch reminders to every 3 years for core vaccines, but they did it and the vet has never given me crap about it.

Link to the AAHA's page for downloading the vaccine guideline pdf: https://www.aahanet.org/Library/CanineVaccine.aspx

My feelings are still really hurt since last night... sleeping didn't make it better since I had a dream that my friend fixed things, and I woke up like "yay! ...oh wait. boo."
So I'm going to have another day where I'm struggling through the crazy work stress with personal issues on top of that. I hate these sorts of days. I can turn WORK off in my personal life, but I can't turn my personal life off at work for whatever reason. Ugh.

UGH crazy. I'm so grateful my vet lets me do my thing, or least keeps it to himself, LOL.

Though I still haven't been in and explained Blossom's crazy spay to him. LOL. That should be interesting. I can't imagine he'll care as he has no issue with Keeva being intact, but we'll see.

*$&@ and my friend just sent me an e-mail unrelated to the problem I'm having with him (he doesn't know he hurt my feelings) and it was incredibly sweet and now I'm trying not to cry.

ugh ugh ugh ugh.
