The Vet Report 2012 -- Round 1
Presented by Scout and Mama.
Mama: It was that time of the year again. Scout's shots. I warned him.
Scout:I knew it was time for shots, but that did not stop me from trying everything I could not to go. Especially refusing to get in that stupid carrier!
Mama: I could barely get him out the door. And to the car. He was on a leash, but kept trying to get away.
Scout:I hate the car!!! It was just as awful as I remembered it! I hid under mommy's seat when it moved and let her know my displeasure
Mama: Then we got to the vet
Scout:There was a GIGANTIC dog there!! It was HUGE! I think it wanted to eat me!!
Mama: It was a St. Bernard. Scout has never seen one before. and it was excited to see Scout. So I took him back into the foyer where he proceeded to get up on my shoulders and head. So I took him out
Scout:I wanted to get away!! I tried running, but Mommy picked me back up and made me go back in. A nice lady came in and petted me
Mama: I took him to a corner of the waiting room and sat quietly with him. He was better. Pretty soon we were taken back to get weighed and put into a room.
Scout:I am 9.6 pounds!! And they put us in a blue room. We usually go in the green one. I let mommy hold me and it was nice. Then Dr. Julie came in and talked to Mommy
Mama: We discussed Scout's vomiting issues and decided that we would have him dewormed and also have some bloodwork and diagnostic testing done later this week. Then it was time for shots.
Scout:I forget how much shots hurt!! And there were 3! I thought that would be it, but then they came back and squirted some stuff in my mouth!!
Mama: For the deworming
Scout:Then they did the absolutely worst thing ever!!! They cut off my claws!! My beautiful man claws. GONE!!
Mama: They trimmed his claws.
Scout: Whatever. I was only expecting shots. Then we finally got to go. After mommy paid.
Mama: The ride home wasn't as bad. He hid under the seat again and did not cry quite as much.
Scout:I am never going back there again!!!!
Mama: He is going back on Thursday to get bloodwork and some diagnostic testing done. He will stay for a few hours. Then he will probably go back in a couple weeks for his teeth cleaning.
Scout:That's what you think!
