Vet Visit

March 16th, 2010


My Rabies vaccine expired today, so yesterday I got to go visit Dr. Alt. I really like her, but I mostly like all the attention and treats I get!!!!! Well, it turned out to be a little more than just a vaccine visit. I’ve had diarrhea and I like to vomit a lot. Mommy and I are pretty used to this because I was born this way, but grammy and grampy seem to think it’s an issue. Dr. Alt says that maybe I have a food allergy. I am already on hydroxyzine, but she said that I should try changing my diet. So for the next 6 weeks I get to eat delicious hypo-allergenic bits with whitefish mixed in!!! (hey, it was the only prescription protein that I haden’t already been exposed to!). And just for a baseline…..mommy and my doctor decided to do a full blood panel – I dont think I’ve had one of those since like, EVER! My mom just got the call and “Jack’s blood looks WONDERFUL! I see absolutely nothing that makes me even a little bit concerned”. YAY!!! Apparently this is good news 🙂 Also, my heart and lungs sound super, and I even got my anal glands expressed (I did NOT like that). But hey, at least I got this free bandana!

    Yay, Jack! Awesome news about your bloodwork being awesome – just like you! We love the new look with that great bandana, too!

    Wow – that’s great news about your blood work, heart and lungs! I’m not so sure about the “express” but sometimes that just has to be done. At least you got a bandana out of the deal. Hope your new meal with that hypo-allergenic bits with whitefish mixed in is good – 6 weeks huh? Maybe the express isn’t so bad if you get to trade off the whitefish for steaks. Now that sounds pretty appetizing…..Mackenzie

    Cool bandana! Make sure you wear it tomorrow! We are excited to hear you are so healthy except for maybe a food allergy! We like to hear great news like that!

    Captain Jack you are totally awesome!

    Wow, Jack you look great in your new bandanna! Hopefully your hypoallergenic bits won’t be too bad. I have a food allergy and used to vomit, too. Now Tucker and I eat this great venison stuff though, and I love it. So I’ll keep my toes crossed for you and hope that your food trial goes smoothly and tastefully!

    And so glad that your test results came out just as awesome as you are! 🙂
