Important note: While it’s nearly impossible for people to receive medical care on the weekend for animals it’s no problem. The vet is open for business every Saturday.
Before the exam I was asked to weigh Roxie. I set her down on the scale built into the waiting room floor–6.5 pounds. She has added around two pounds since joining us!
She is still tiny. Don’t let my close-up photos fool you.
Roxie was poked and prodded and had her temperature taken without flinching.
Surprised… was I surprised she didn’t even tense a little? Yeah. I was holding her, but that was obviously an unnecessary act.
After a pronouncement of good health it was time for Roxie’s injections. She got two and again it was without a whimper.
We came home and all was fine, but within an hour or so Roxie began to slow down. She spent much of the rest of the day in suspended animation. Helaine, prone to worry, worried.
It wasn’t until late this evening that the old Roxie returned. Not a moment too soon. She went back to running, retrieving and sometimes nipping.
Right now Roxie and I are on the sofa waiting for Stef to come home. One of us is sleeping.
Unfortunately next Friday Roxie goes back to the vet. Three shots today would have been too many. There’s one more injection to get.
