The day started out like normal yesterday but then Mom and Dad loaded all three of us into the car and we headed out... we love car rides but this one ended at the vet's office which we weren't too thrilled about.
This was a new vet's office but we were pleasantly surprised to see our regular vet there!! We love Dr. Ritz!! She always takes such good care of us :)
Well apparently Brutus and Ellie were just along for the ride as this visit was all about me - this was my yearly checkup. I also had an incident with a tick earlier in the week and Dr. Ritz had to dig out the part that mom couldn't get with the tweezers. I would post pictures, but it looks pretty nasty.
Waiting for the vet...
My left ear has been bothering me and Brutus has been having problems hearing so she swabbed our ears and it came back that we both have a yeast problem in our ears... Brutus is Mich worse than mine and his ear canal in both ears was blocked. We got ear drops to take care of that nasty yeast!
It was such a beautiful day yesterday and we enjoyed being out for a bit. Well, we got home and my face started feeling funny. I tried rubbing it with my paws and also against pretty much anything that I could fine. Mom noticed me rubbing my face and had me come over to her. She looked concerned and I heard her say that my face looked puffy. A call to the vet's office and we were on our way back - but just with me this time.
Does my face look puffy to you?? These pics were taken on the car ride back to the vet.
We got to the vet's office and they met mom & I at the door and took me right back. I had to get a steroid shot to help take the puffiness down. Then we got to wait in the lobby for a while to make sure the puffiness was going down.
I was so ready to go home and just sleep for a while. Mom & Dad stopped at Burger King for lunch on the way home and Mom fed me french fries - I NEVER get french fries!! So I guess there was a bright side to the situation.
We finally got home and Dad got out a nice fuzzy blanket for me to sleep on - he's a good Dad :)
I am feeling much better today, thank goodness!!
