Thread: Vet Visit

  1. #1

    Default Vet Visit

    Poppy and I just went to the vet for her 3rd vaccine! Only two more weeks till we can take her out and about! Very exciting!

    Anyway, she got so excited when I got her harness out. Came and sat quietly in front of me while I put it on then ran off into the garage and sat by the backdoor of the car! It was so sweet! She usually just looks at me after I have put the harness on as if to say...now what!!! She's never come to the car before! I have had to carry her every time. When I put her into the car (shes too little to get in by herself) she sat on her seat with the towel on it and waited for me to clip her in. Then as soon as we drove off she layed down! Lovely!!!

    The vet lost out info! So had to give them all our details again! And I forgot to take our vaccination card! Silly me! So have to drop in for them to sign it!

    The vet checked her tummy and vulva and bottom as I told her about the bottom scooting and its continuance and there is nothing wrong with any of those bits. Her bottom is a bit red again so she said I need to start the neocort back up again! She also cut her nails for me!

    Just wanted to share...OH isn't home yet!

    It sounds like Poppy is a very good girl. And obviously likes going in the car! So pleased for you Amy that you seem to have a very bright girl there in Poppy!

    Thanks guys! She is very smart! I guess I never realised how clever dogs were! Our family dog was never trained, never went to Puppy Preschool or Obedience Club. But Poppy seems to be catching on SO quickly! She sits and comes (most times) even when I don't have a treat in my hand! And is getting very good at drop!

    Thats so good to hear. I love a good puppy story.

    A friend of mine has Cav's and she does obedience with hers they are highly intelligent and well trained.

    She also has a bird that does amazing things, all trained. She got her Cavs because they were good with kids. But even now that the kids are teenagers they are still her breed of choice.

    Her Cav is one of those in the Dogs In Cars Cadbury Ad.

    for Amy and Poppy!

    Do you need me to apply the cream when she's here?

    that's good to know! one of the reasons we picked a cav was because we want kiddies down the track and read they are great with kids!

    Yes please! The vet said 3 times a day for the next few days then 2 times a day for a few days. Then 3 times a week down to when she shouldn't need it anymore. The only thing the vet can think of is that as her red bum heels it gets itchy, she drags her bum, makes it red again and the whole cycle starts again. So we want to try and break that cycle!

    **scuttles off to write note and pin to fridge**

    Breaking the cycle is a brilliant plan.

    As far as the kiddies go, it's up to you to show her that kids are nice and are fun, once she's done with her last jab you should be right to take her for a walk near the school and introduce her to some nice kidlets there The more you expose her to good, kind, gentle and nice kids and kid noises (almost a shame she won't be here during the week, lots of kid noises from the school during lunchtimes ), the better she will be in the long run, just remember to take it slow and make it positive
