Vet School Visit

Last week I saw the large blue carrier come out of the closet, so I was a bit cautious. Unfortunately mom was smarter, and I was scooped up and packed up and headed off to the vet school before I knew what had happened! I do pretty good in the car, but I like to sing along with the music. It's so nice this time of year with the holiday songs playing. Anyway, we arrived and I had to sit in the waiting room for a while, but not too long. I finally made it back to the room where they decided to take my blood pressure! do you know how they check that? They squeeze your tail! I was not fond of this, first they had to put this gooey gel on my tail, and then they wrapped this cuff around it and squeezed it. I'm surprised it wasn't very high as unhappy as I was, but it was good. I was glad when that was over. I thought I was finished, but NOOOOO I had to go off and be weighed! Then mom left me for several hours while more torture was performed...they shaved my chest for my echocardiogram, they DREW blood, and took x-rays! It's a good thing they gave me a bit of my favorite happy juice or I might have hurt someone! Finally mom came back for me, and we headed home. I am now on an additional medication for my heart called Enalapril. I have mild progression, but I still feel fine! I'll keep everyone posted. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
