SHELBY'S VET VISIT
Well, today was Shelby's vet visit. I have been using a vet that is about 1/2 hr away from me and I like them. A few years ago, a very nice young vet started working there. He was the first vet to see Kodi and Shelby when I got them. Last year he opened up his own practice about a mile from my house so I thought I would try him, because I liked the way he handled my dogs. Also, I liked his approach on shots.
Good news - He said her weight was good, heart & lungs seemed fine when he listened, and he was amazed at how terrific her teeth were. She got her 3yr rabies, bortadella. No lepto or lyme because I said I would rather not. Also, he is switching to 3 year vaccines, because he doesn't believe in
Sort of Bad news - she has luxating patellas. He said they move around like silly string. He asked me a few questions about her walking, limping, etc. and I told him she has never had a problem. She is always doing her happy dance and I wish you could see her jump. He said great, not to worry too much. If she has a problem, he will not hesitate to send her to an ortho. I guess that means no agility for Shelby. I hope my insurance covers LP. I have to go read it.
