Best of luck with this!! And although I'm a cat lover, I do understand your position. As much as I would like to treat my pets as a member of the family, truth is, it's expensive a lot of the time.
And - gotta love those farm supply stores that sell abx!! I've treated many farm animals and pets that way!
