Dogs Need Regular Vet Care

Jake is less than thrilled to be on the table at the vet's office.

My crew went to the veterinarian the other day. Crazy as it seems, it is easier to take all three at once even though Max didn’t need anything.

Windy needed a Parvo booster, a Proheart injection (for heartworm) and an exam. Jake needed his Bordatella (needed for going to the groomer and if he needed boarded), his annual vaccine,  a Proheart injection, a geriatric exam and yearly blood work. Whew!

Windy tolerates attention from the vet and vet tech.

Max was glad to watch.

Yes, care gets expensive, but this preventative care keeps them healthy and heads off problems. We learned Jake has a low thyroid function, but not dangerously low. It is at the bottom of normal. We will watch for any signs of weight gain that may indicate he would need medication

Later that day everyone got a walk. We had some tired, quiet furkids that evening.

Jake, Windy and Max keep watch for evil cats and squirrels.

About daysofourdogs

I have owned dogs nearly all my life. Many different breeds, mutts, rescues, and foundlings have found their ways into my heart. I have two dachshunds and a miniature schnauzer now. I hate puppy mills and want them wiped from the face of the earth.
