Yesterday was Olivia’s first visit to our veterinarian. It was one week already since we picked her up, and time for her to get a check up and some other important things done. She even posed by the sign for a photo. I guess Olivia is realizing posing is part of life at our house.
Of course, the vet tech, and everyone else at the Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital fell in love with our sister when she walked in the door. She got cuddled so much by everyone we were afraid her fur might start to wear off!
Even though Olivia is only ten weeks old, she still needs to have her heartworm preventative, and flea and tick treatment. She started learning to track yesterday too, so she will be in the grass with ticks a lot. Aside from that, she needs to be chipped. Usually the breeder does that, but the chips hadn’t arrived when we picked up Olivia. Now she is all registered so if she ever goes missing she is properly chipped.
Of course, she also had a small physical. Her weight came in at just over eleven and a half pounds. Olivia’s first visit to our veterinarian went well. Although Olivia loves all the attention, she wasn’t keen on Dr. Lammi looking in her ears, so the techs gave her some cheese to keep her busy during the ear check. She will have to go back for a vaccination in about two weeks, but otherwise she is all set. Tonight she starts her Puppy Einstein class, and she is ready to roll!
