    Default Today at the vets.

    So this morning we get to the vets at opening time for Mojos heartworm booster and the nurse who did it was his Puppy Preschool teacher.

    It was like 2 old lovers greeting each other. All over each other and carrying on like real dags !! She couldnt believe how big he was now (45.3 kg's) and said he looked great.

    So after the shenanigans she left to get his shot ready and then called us in. Time to get serious now. I tell him to sit and hold/cuddle/pat him so he dosnt move. Shot goes in, half the goop in, and then HYPO puppy kicks back in and decides to go crazy again.

    Dad's hanging on with all his might for that 2 seconds needed for the rest to go in but Mojo brushes me off like i'm not even there. Top of syringe departs from the tube part and makes me whant to puke....(i HATE, HATE, HATE needles...i'm a big wuss). So after she pulls it out we calm him down for a another go with the help of a second nurse.....well that's just someone else to play with in his eyes so he goes BONKERS again and it's all a big game to the big puppy .

    Finally we get a chance and the deeds done. I'm beaten up and the 3 of us are covered in hair and slobber. What a start to thier day !!!! But he still shook thier hands, sat down for his treats and gave them both cuddles afterwards. LOL.
    I love having a friendly dog but this morning it was over the top and a pain in the but (and pain in the neck for Mojo).

    If that was me getting an injection and a syringe snapped like that i think i would have flaked it.
    Might go in early next visit so he can say hello to everyone then settle down a bit before his turn. Definently need a diffrent plan of attack.

    Anyone else got any interesting, funny or embarrasing vet visit stories ??

    OH MY GOD, 45 kilograms!!!!! Mojo certainly is a big boy now!! Oskar is 23kg, but he is pretty placid at the vets I must admit. LOL, sounds like you had a fun morning Sean!!

    Katy likes to lick our vet and he wears glasses.........I had warned him not to get down to her level

    I have taught her "check" no.....she will just drop onto her side, like she does for "bang"....It helps. Katy was a terrible youngster with her out of control tongue....She also got a Judges nose once, when he was looking at her teeth.

    But I love it when they are friendly, so much better compared to aggressive. Better to say "watch the tongue/slobber" compared "to be careful he might bite"

    Hhaha oh gawd, this is why I couldn't be a vet no matter how much I wanted it... Blood coming out of people I'm fine with, I can dig around cuts and get out glass, bandage people up no problem, but the slightest drop of blood from an animal and I feel light headed.

    My worst one was taking Cyrus in the get microchipped. I was holding onto him pretty tight because I knew he would flinch, but I didn't bank on him flying his head around and throwing a hissy fit. Well the vet let go of the microchip inserter thingy while it was still in his neck... I twas just flopping around over his shoulders. I grabbed Cy's muzzle and my OH grabbed the rest of him and the vet finished the job.

    This is a 5kg dog

    While in the flip side my parents 80kg Great Dane had an abcess on his neck. They took him to the vet to have it drained and the vet just stood him on the ground, put a bowl under his neck and sliced it open with a scalpel. The dog didn't move an inch, just stood there, it must have felt good to have that fluid drained.

    Little dogs can be even harder to hang onto than big ones sometimes!!

    Years ago my OH and I had a Belgian Shep/Border collie x. He went everywhere with us, was our shadow. When he went in for desexing he was so sad to be left at the vets. We went to pick him up that evening. From the waiting room there was a long hallway to the surgery area, and as he walked around the corner at the end he saw us and tried to leap/run enthusiastically towards us, then yowled and sat down to lick his poor bits. He did this every step - "Hooray you're here!! OMG that hurts!!!" So we had to race down the hallway and pick him up. Poor baby. But still a little bit funny. You'd think the world had ended each time he moved!

    I hate going to the vet lol.

    Last time we went to get Barneys hip checked a few weeks back...he decided it would be a good idea to piss on their hallway wall while they were checking his gait. Completely embarrassing considering he never ever pees inside.

    Brody was the same when we had him desex Natty, he refused to walk more than about 2 steps before planting him bum on the ground... This went on for about 5 days

    And lol I'm sure they are used to that Lala, our vets surgery has the lino going about half way up the walls, I suspect for that very reason

    Ha, ha. Great stories guys. Glad i'm not the only one who's felt a bit silly at the vets.

    I can just imagine some of the vets and nurse's coming home.

    45 Kg's of dog ... haha that would be fun to try and hang on to!

    we had a staffy that was the biggest sook you will ever see. Funny thing was, he looked tough, but was the direct opposite.
    Everytime we went to the vet for a shot, he would start wimpering and yelping before the vet even stuck the needle in
