Dog tales..........

We have all survived Small Dog's visit to the vet for her annual booster jab and health check relatively unscathed.

Fortunately we saw our favourite vet, who is completely unfazed when Small Dog starts acting like a whirling dervish and manages to maintain her sense of humour regardless.

It was gratifying to learn that Small Dog's teeth are in very good condition, and that she has managed to retain all of them in contrast to most other Yorkies her age.

Similarly, the vet commented on how soft and silky her coat feels which was due to the grubby animal being doused with Wash & Go only this morning.

Small Dog is understandably reluctant to let anyone manipulate her back legs, but her speedy exit from the room confirmed that she was indeed walking well and using all four legs properly, signalling that both of her extremely expensive luxating patella surgeries this past year have been a success.

As for the actual injection itself ..... possibly tired out by simultaneously struggling for dear life and trying to somersault off the table, Small Dog didn't even batt an eyelid. 

Came away with worming tablets (ewww!) and a new type of flea/tick/lice collar for dogs which apparently gives all over protection for 8 months.

So, all in all, not too bad.


Small Dog's right to reply.....
