Vet Day For Zeus

Wednesday, July 03, 2019

Today, I'm taking Zeus, the wonder dog, to the vet for a toenail clip and medication review. He will hate it, as he always does, poor little guy. I will be relieved to have his claws ground down so he doesn't scratch me accidentally. I've never seen an animal whose toenails grow as fast and as sharp, as this little guy. I'm afraid of what could happen to my skin, which is pretty fragile, right before surgery. So Zeus and I will go for a short road trip today. He also knows that the vet will give him treats after his nail clip! He's usually joyful on the way home!

    Zeus came through his pedicure with flying colors. emoticon I’m glad we gave him his “calm down pill” beforehand! Being both Chihuahua and Jack Russel, Zeus is a very high strung little dude. When he is in a stressful situation, he kind of freaks out. When they were working on his feet, he started squealing like a stuck pig and struggling to get free. The vet techs are very gentle and calming. They quickly calmed him down and finished the job. This is why we let the vet handle him and not a groomer. We reviewed his medications, refilled some of them and off we went. They didn’t give him treats but that’s okay, the little guy was tuckered out and slept the whole way home!

    Hope Zeus made it through the vet visit with flying colors, is pleased with the treats. Wise move taking care of the toe nails and protecting your skin. Wishing you the best with the upcoming surgery. emoticon

    It will be good when it's over. Our babies (dogs) never liked it either and can't say I blame them! Happy 4th, Cyndi!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Good luck to Zeus! Poor boy . . . my Mr. Spot never liked going to the vet or grooming, either. Bless his little heart.
