Mom took Kodak and Winton to the vet-I was jealous that they were in their carriers, so I started to walk out with mom, but she put me back inside the house! So off they went. Mom said Kodak was wonderful! he always is at the vet! He had his glucose checked as well as his fructosamine! Then it was Winton's turn for his first ever Sub Q Fluids for his renal failure. Mom has these grand plans of doing this at home so he doesn't get all amped up and cranky, so she went in to learn!! Well learn she did! Ha Ha! The vet tech told mom to scruff Winton-which she did and she was talking to him trying to calm him down, while the vert tech, Leah, put the needle between Winton's shoulder blades-boy did he cry and howl. They had to take it out and get a towel to put over Winton's head! So mom scruffed him again and held the towel over his head and they tried again! They got about 50ml of fluids in before Winton said enough is enough! He had all his paws splayed out, claws out, looking for something to clamp onto! He got mom briefly! But she knows he loves her! But he wasn't happy!!
Mom took them both into the car and drove home. When she got home she opened up the crates and let them out to cruise around the car-their treat for being so good at the vet! Winton was the only one who got out to look out the windows! Then she brought them back into the house and I was waiting for them! Where had they gone?? Why didn't I get to go? Well I'll show mom I'll get in the carrier and wait for her to take me someplace!!
