My human sister and brother took me to the V-E-T last Friday! They woke me up super duper early at 10:15 AM. I thought we were going somewhere fun, like a play date or to the doggy beach, but nnnnoooo. My V-E-T is Dr. Pema Mallu at Veterinary Holistic Care in Bethesda, MD. She and her assistants are super nice, but I woo'ed the WHOLE time because I was still not happy being there!
First, they put me on the scale. I now weigh 46.6 pounds, which is down from the 49.8 lbs I weighed last year, but it's too hot these days for me to eat much. Then the humans took me into a room where I tried to hide from Dr. Pema under my human's chair, but they found me. The humans pulled me out and Dr. Pema kept TOUCHING me! And she used these special toys to look in my ears and eyes, but she didn't let me play with them. She said I have a little bit of something called cat-a-rackts, whatever that is. Maybe it's a new type of cat? But why would it be in my eyes?
Then Dr. Pema poked something into my front leg and it was really owwie, but I was a big boy and didn't cry. It's best not to watch the V-E-T draw the red liquid from woo. Dr. Pema said it was for a "hart-worm" test and a "Distempter/Parvo" titer. I don't know what those are, but the humans seemed to think it was important.
We're still waiting for the "hart-worm" and the titer test results, but Dr. Pema said everything else was good.
After we left the evil V-E-T, I did have some tummy troubles, and my human thinks it may have been stress from the visit. :(
Hope woor weekend was better than mine!
