Early early PF palace time -
I set my alarm for 6 so Willow could get her meds within the 2-3 hour window before out 8am appointment -
Working the camera!
A new post on the Falcon Wire - informative!
We did have some storms in the early afternoon - kind of khooled us but also humided us -
750am and time to start our 'venture -
When I called to say Woozy Willow was here, tsaid to come on in so we could get everything started - she greeted the desk staff with her usual wiggle-ness - I explained to them what had brought us to this step - one of them said both of her dogs need to go the sedated exam route as well -
We were in the room we had been in for her first visit LAST year - after greeting our techs with her usual love, she waited patiently for them to come back s0 we could start with the sedation portion of our program -
Just watching for the show to start -
It's HER room!
Even if the breed looks to be FLOOFY - perhaps one of those disapyrs!
After getting her sleepy juice injections, we crashed on my bag;s strap - let the flipping and flopping commence -
Nails and dewclaws done - ears checked - The VET - a nice woman named Stephanie - gave her an incredible check - the kind of exam that would NOT have happened without the sedation - teeth checked - a bit of cleaning chipping etc done on them - blood drawn - although the one tech commented that getting blood drawn whilst sedated is a slow challenge - but she got some - she had the senior panel done - EKG and stuff - girl parts checked - glands done - and the tech even did some brushing - and of course, her vaccinations!
The VET gave her a good report - said she's got a good heart - no murmur or issues - and did pass along a few things to watch and check - she said in her experiences, CattleDogs often need the sedation as they are often anxious or driven to want to work - and the exam interferes - we stayed there for about 10-15 minutes until she started to come to enough to get up and walk - back to The Khottage we came - falling slipping a time or two on the way in - she plopped herself on the kitchen floor - like a stone - so I went to visit BOB!
who had some UNIKORNs visiting!
The special was the mushroom swiss omelette - and the usual tasty sides -
Since Willow hadn't had breakfast - save for a bit of peanut butter on some small biscuit bits for her pills, I shared my toast -
and some omelette -
She was still crashed in the same spot - SO out of it -SO OUT of it!
She came out to The Living Room after an hour or so - weaving and wobbling - and eventually settled under the table after testing out other locations - of course, the storms didn't help with the recovery but with her anxiety meds, she didn't much mind -
She's still crashed as I put this together - again, all part of the process as communicated by The VET -
Thanks to all for passing along kind words of support for this - so glad it is done - and now we'll know what to expect THE NEXT TIME -
We'll have a FUN 'venture - she's earned it - and I've earned what I hope will be some good sleep!
BUT I seriously do need to vacuum - it's way too furry in here - but I didn't want to disturb Sleeping Beauty -after all, what's one more day?
Happy Saturday EvFURRYone!
