We are all thankful here that our yearly vet visit is behind us. Once a year, my sisters and I, plus cat bro Bert and kitty sis Sophie all go together to the vet for annual physicals. It is a big undertaking, but it is nice to have everyone on the same schedule. My sisters and I go in for a quick visit in the spring too, but that is much easier than the big family tune up!
Mom plans the visit a month or more ahead of time as we need a big block of time for all of us to be checked over. When she made the appointment, she didn’t know it was take your cat to the vet day. I was asked if I would take Sophie to the vet, and I said sure. It was a rotten trick because I didn’t realize the whole family would be going. Sophie and I were first because we are both scared of the vet.
Mom totally forgot the take photos of me getting my exam because she was so busy asking all the questions she wrote down on her list. Sophie was not happy at all. As it turns out, she is the only one with any issues. I guess one of her teeth may need to come out, but it doesn’t have to happen right away. Both Sophie and I are at good weights, and all our tests came back good. Mom is always worried about me now that I am older, but my senior panel was all good.
My sisters and Bert went in together. Those three always enjoy it at the vet. Bert is mad when he has to leave! What a weirdo! Bert, no surprise, is a bit on the chubby side. The rest of the family is just right. Our vet oohed and aahed at our shiny chompers. She was also impressed with how nicely our nails were trimmed/dremeled. Even the cats have nicely trimmed front claws. My sisters and I all have great teeth too, which is super important.
The vet we have been seeing for years is no longer at this clinic, so we had a new vet. She hasn’t checked us out before. Bailie and Madison put her at ease with all their usual snuggling, and demanding of attention.
Bert also amazed our new vet with his dog-like behavior. As always, he was cruisin’ the counter for food, and he preferred the dog treats over the cat treats. Aside from being a bit fat, he is all good.
A good bill of health is always important, and even more so as a girl ages. We are super thankful we are well cared for, and we are in good health. Make sure your pets get a yearly vet visit, and if possible a second visit, as a year is a long time for a pet!
