Okay, mom decided I needed to get the 6 month Bordetella Booster because I go so many places. Mom called and made an appointment for me and said she wanted to have my ears looked at also. One seemed to have more wax than the other one. I was so excited to go for a car ride, we had stayed home , for a few days.
I was barking and panting, hoping we were going to the park. Well, it wasn't the park! I knew where we were so I kept panting, I was anxious. Mom decided to have my yearly blood work done instead of waiting until my other vaccines were due. They took my temperature and it was 103! They had mom remove my harness and the took me to the back room to take my blood, they also rechecked my temperature, it went down. Weird! I seem to have stressed myself into a little fever. The vet checked my ears and said one was a little inflamed, probably pollen allergies. I know it's February but we already have flowers and lots of pollen this year! They wanted a urine sample, but I'm the kind of dog who likes to mark all the grass, so I was empty after I had marked the parking lot. BOL!! If only I had known I would have to go back, I would have saved some! At least my anals weren't infected. We left with a bottle of spray for my allergy ear.
Finally we went to the park! Yaay!!! But mom made me stay in the shade and kept the walk very short. Next we went to my favorite place! The cookie store!!!! I love it there!! It is called 3 Dogs & A Chick. Mom let me have a cheesy cookie and pick out a fancy cookie to eat on Valentine's day!!
So I thought hooray!! No more vet for a year! right?? Turns out I was wrong, Friday we went back to vet and mom didn't let me mark the grass, she carried me instead of letting me walk! I knew where we were and started panting like crazy. Mom handed me over to the tech to go in the back room to have my urine drawn, hoping I had some in me. BOL!! Well I sure did!! the one lady put me on the floor to hand me over to the other lady and I proceeded to piddle from anxiety! But I stopped and managed to save enough for the sample they wanted. They checked my temperature and it was normal. Maybe I was just hot when we went on Tuesday, the weather was much cooler on Friday. I have a feeling I won't get out much this Summer.
I REALLY hope I don't need to go tot he vet again this week! BOL!!! I know, today is Saturday the week is over. Mom says I shouldn't need to go back until June, then I will be due for more vaccines. Then mom says, if I scoot too much I will have to go back to vet to have my anals done again. Darn! Can't a Pom catch a break?!
I think mom should give me more cookies! But she says no, no extra cookies because I gained .2 pounds. I now weigh 13.4 instead of 13.2. At least my body condition is still ideal and I don't need to lose weight!
Do any of you have any interesting vet stories to share? I would love to hear them!
