Vet visit

So sorry for the lack of updates!

S has been hogging the computer all this while.

Anyway, last week I went to the vet because my skin condition was getting worse. Sometimes I even scratch till I bleed.

S took me to another vet.

I hated it. When she told me that she was bring me to the clinic, I tried to look all sad, with big bambi eyes, but she wasn't fooled. I need to think of something else...

This is me trying to persuade S to change her mind

This is me, in the van...still upset.

On the way, we stopped to feed the van. I refused to come out. There was too much noise and people. So I stayed in.

Once we reached the vet, I was greeted by a dog that wanted to eat me. He was twice my size and was growling at me.

There was a long wait.

Here's me in the waiting room.

Once I was on the examination table, I got really really scared. I kept leaning on S and wanting to jump down.

Just look at how scared I was.

Anyway, the vet was really nice with me. She was gentle and she actually remembered me!
She did two tests. First she scraped some of my skin to check for mites, then she brought me into a room to check for fungus with some kind of very cool light.
When both results came in negative, she said that I might have bacteria infection.

Oh, and she also said that I lost weight! So I assumed that I can get more treats but nooo...she wants me to lose more weight. Haiz...I don't think this diet is ever going to end.

S was very happy with me because of my good behaviour.

It's been about a week now and my skin is no more red. I'm not scratching anymore, but the bald spots are still there. S is waiting for it to grow, so she bought me a skin supplement. It's supposed to be good, but I hate it! It tastes horrible. S also said that she dreads giving it to me everyday as the smell makes her want to puke.

Anyway, that's all for now. :D

Hi Molson! Thanks for visiting.

Yes, all us dogs own our humans. How else could we wake them up in the middle of the night for walks? :D

Ignorance is bliss. Just go with it. You definately are better of not knowing. lol.
