Great news, I'm heartworm negative! But before I tell you all about that, I wanted to let you all know that my Aunt A started a blog about her kitties! It'd mean a lot to her if you could stop by it here and welcome her and her kittehs to Blogville.
Back to the vet visit! I was a very, very good girl. The vet doesn't scare, and I was well behaved. I didn't bark, growl, cower, whine, ect. Mom was so proud!
At the vet's office there's two "office dogs", one 7 year old (very fat) Dachshund, and one 6 year old Boston Terrier, both females. They're super cute and really friendly! Here they are:

Like I said, I'm heartworm free! I weighed 11lbs exactly, and I got my anal glands expressed for the first time. I'd been chewing and licking at my booty for a while, and (sorry if this is TMI, but it's a dog blog!) sometimes I'd smell really stinky and fishy back there. Since getting them expressed, I've had no issues! Dachshund Mommy: I've never had a dog with anal gland issues, and I'm unsure how often they'll need done. Does anyone have any tips on that?
|This pic makes me look fat. I'm not. ;)|
Mom also got me 12 months worth of Heartgard+, and 6 months of Comfortis. Mom also sent in our $22 total rebate forms on Saturday, so that's good. Mom only got 6 months worth of Comfortis so we can see how well it works, if I react negatively to them, ect.
|DM: The 6 months of Comfortis was more expensive than the 12 months of Heartgard! It had better work....|
Everyone at the vet is usually really nice, but this time the receptionist was a real bitch. Honestly, you should have someone polite and friendly working the front desk!
On the bright side though, Mom bought me some goodies for being such a good girl! She got me a JW Pets ring toy, 2 6" beef trachea (DM: can you say nasty? DN: can you say YUMMY?), and a Zuke's Z Bone. I've never had either of the chews before, and let me tell you I loved em! Of course, Mom had to make me wait to eat them, but once I was released I chowed down.
|DM: despite Nola's "mommy beats me" face, I have never laid a hand on her, and I never will. She was just made I had her look at me instead of trying to rip through the treats!|
|DM: I think this was the mint flavor, but has anyone else noticed it smells just like worcestershire sauce?As soon as I smelt it I wanted some Chex Mix. :p|
|"Okay!" The most beautiful word in the world!|
