Hi Blur's Mom good to hear things are going well for Blue

For a CRF cat a vet visit with blood & urine work every three months is pretty standard when there are no obvious new issues (I think everyone hates those bills )

Absolutely somewhere other than the vets would be cheaper, your local pharmacy can definately order in for you. Not sure where in BC you are, I'm in the lower mainland and was ordering from Grant @ Pacific Health Care they are listed with www.felinecrf.org as a supplier for CRF cats, so mention that if you contact them. There is no minimum order, shipping cost is minimal and generally delivered within 2-3 days in the GVRD.

Hope it wasn't too bad/hard Happens to everyone at one point or another
