Dog’s Life

August 30th, 2006

I’m sure the SweetBippy will write on this, but I wanted to get my two-bits in…

Yesterday we sent Sadie (our beagle) off to the vet for a teeth cleaning. For some reason, it is a procedure that required anathestsia and so Sadie would be at the vet’s all day recovering from the procedure. About 5pm I head on down to the vet’s to pick her up, and she comes out walking a bit slower than normal. Not really surprising, being under the sleeping gas does stuff to a bod. I sign her out and take her home.

Reading through the paperwork accompanying her home, I see that while they had the opportunity, the vet decided to give her every vaccine known to man, and check out her #2 hole for ring-worm. The poor dog, is really hurting. She yelps at a small touch in the wrong spot, and is happiest just lying there, softly shivering and whimpering. Last night Angie and I were sitting on the couch watching ‘Celebrity Duets‘  (*clap* WOO!) and Sadie got up, and turned around and stood, and just lowered her jaw to her bed… just to support it. Entirely pitiful.

We took her back to the vet today, kinda like.. you broke our dog, please fix it… I hope that in fixing it, they don’t realize they may have missed a vaccine or twelve, or decide that some kind of exploratory surgery is necessary. *fume*

    Wow, I thought vets were suppossed to tell you what they plan to do, not just do it all in one swoul foop. Ouch. I hope Sadie gets better. You can still have our dog if you want. 😉
