It’s time for your dog to have her spring vet visit. Mom scheduled our heartworm test appointments for yesterday afternoon. It’s hard to believe our visit last March was the first time under COVID where Mom couldn’t come in with us. Sadly, it is still that way, but we hope maybe for our yearly physicals she will finally be able to come in with us. We parked in spot 17 and waited for the nice guy to come and get us one at a time. It was super fast as we had everything all wrapped up in just twenty minutes. We are thankful it went fast as we are always a bit frightened at the vet, especially when a stranger takes us away from the car.
Bailie was first. Mom went in age order. Since Bailie doesn’t like the car, she is in her kennel in the back where she feels safer. Lately she has started to squirm out of her seat belt, making the kennel a better option because of that too.
Madison and I cozy up to make sure we each stay as safe as possible. As we expected, our heartworm tests came back negative. We got another year’s supply of heartworm pills to keep us healthy. With the warm weather, we also stocked up on flea and tick preventative. We know a lot of people don’t like pills or topical preventatives and that is fine. Because we are out in the tall grass tracking and doing other things a lot, Mom finds it safer for us to use a pill we take once a month to keep ticks at bay. Natural methods are just not good enough for our lifestyle according to our mom.
We also got weighed in and are happy to say we are all keeping our girlish figures in order!
Don’t forget to schedule an appointment for the spring vet visit for your pup’s heartworm test, and remember with the warmer weather those bad news ticks are out and about too, so protect your furry friend against that threat. We are glad to have the visit behind us and now we are set until our annual physical in late summer.
