Last week,Loreali went to the vet to have some sores on her ears and head checked out. This first photo is at the bus stop; you can see the general lack of winter we’ve had in the background.
Rory rode the bus like the pro she is, and I didn’t need to let her out during the ride.
We got to the vet early and were ushered into our exam room.
While we waited for the doctor, Rory investigated Dashiell’s carrier, which we used for the trip today.
Then the nurse came in and left the scale on the table. Of course, Rory had to investigate it, and it had some interesting smells.
Apparently, they were VERY interesting smells!
But at the end of the day, Rory’s skin issues were most likely related to her early, temporary, heat.
So her issue was hormonal, and not contagious. GREAT to know!
Of course, right at the end of the visit, Rory got a little naughty. What can you do?
Wednesday, Izaak got his Suprelorin implant.
It was chilly, so I dressed him in Jacoby’s red fleece snowflake hoodie and his festive red flannel diapers
He knew he looked festive and he owned it.
He also posed with the Jul decorations in the cat waiting room…like the Jul Goat.
He was also very interested in my tea.
Zak had a good time exploring the waiting room.
At last, it was time for Zak to go in and get his implant.
Unlike Logan, Zak had no problem with the lidocain, and he didn’t react at all to the actual injection. Even the vet commented on how great Zak accepted his implant compared to the way Logan accepted it. Zak is completely fine, two days later, and he doesn’t seem to need the diapers anymore, either. I think he’s already happier now that he’s on Suprelorin.
I collected Izaak from Arlanda airport in Stockholm on 20 June. On 26 June, his five-month birthday, we went to the vet for a wellness check.
Of course, the first part of the trip was taking the bus. Zak rocked that part of the exercise.
He was also pretty okay in the vet’s waiting room.
And in the exam room as well.
Zak was quite brave on the vet’s examination table.
Zak was checked out thouroughly…and he was fine. The vet thought he was two months younger than he actually was…but, other than that…
No, really, Zak…you were fine.
Okay, take my word for it.
On the way back to our apartment from the bus, I took Izaak to check out our local pet store.
Zak had a lot of fun playing with the cat beds on display.
He also did a really great job walking outside on his leash, even at his age.
I mean, only five months old, and he’s already awesome at walking on a leash.
Whilst I was going through last year’s photos, looking for all of the pictures of my finger, I found some photos and some videos of Logan going to the vet in the middle of all of it. Full disclosure, I have used some of these photos of Logan in a previous post, but the videos are all new.
My Facebook post from 15 September: Logan was a little listless and had no appetite (to the point where he wouldn’t even eat treats!) the past couple of days, so, paranoid overprotective mom that I am, I managed to get a vet appointment this morning. Feel a bit silly now. This weekend is claw clipping, which also includes ear cleaning for the LunaTicks, and bum checks and teeth cleaning for the boys. So this morning I figured, start with Logan, so he’ll have nice short claws at the vet, right?
So I get to the tooth cleaning bit in the routine, and… yeah, super loose premolar and slightly bleedy gums. Teething! 45 minute (each way) bus ride to Skultorp… well, at least they didn’t charge me, and it’s better to have him checked out, especially before a show!
Anyway, here’s Logan in the exam room, showing off his grumpy old man voice. I think he sounds like Walter Matthau.
Watching these videos and looking at these photos, I can see how different Logan and Izaak are. They look alike…but they are still so different.<
For this video, I posted: Logan is getting pretty good at leashing…and he knows where he lives!
Compare Logan walking home to Izaak walking the same route. He has to be under my feet!!!
