|Waiting in the waiting room of OVH|
Lady: I am sorry Hailey, but you were due for your checkup and we needed your heart worm and tick treatment.
Lee: I would rather get the bugs then go there. It was horrible.
Lady: I know you were a little nervous, but you did the best job ever at the vet, I am so proud of you.
Lee: I was afraid if I was bad you would leave me forever. Sunday night to make sure you didn't sneak out of bed and leave me I laid on your legs all night. Did you notice?
Lady: Yes I did. I know that going to camp was a little stressful, but I know that you had a good time. Now, let's get back to your checkup. You had lost a little weight but are "perfect" at 35 lbs. I am happy that I am feeding you the right amount and you are getting enough exercise.
Lee: I look great! People in the waiting room commented on how pretty I am . . . .
Lady: You are very pretty and you were too busy eating cookies to even notice you were getting a shot.
Lee: I got a shot? Really? I think you are making that up. Let's not talk about what the vet did after he gave me all those treats. It was horrible.
Lady: I know your rectal exam was not pleasant, but you have been licking yourself a lot and I wanted Woody to check to make sure everything was ok. You don't have any physical problems, your glands are small, so while it could be some sort of food allergy, it is more likely obsessive licking.
Lee: If you humans could lick yourself you would understand.
Lady: O Hailey! Overall you got a clean bill of health and we got sent home with your and Phody's Revolution. Usually, Woody says to start it June 1, but because of where we live and the number of ticks he has seen already this year, we started it today. We will also be doing a daily tick inspection. Hopefully I can pair that with your teeth brushing and create a routine for you.
Lee: I am ok if you don't. I don't care if it is healthy.
Lady: Well, since my goal is to make sure you live until 10 Hailey, these are the things I am going to do.
Lee: I just want to know one thing, why didn't Phody have to be tortured too?
Lady: He will be, he is due for his check up in the summer. I don't think I can handle you both at the vet!
PS: The weather is silly here. Last week it was over 20C and yesterday we had some snow. This morning it is very frosty. We want nice weather!
