Needles - Shots - Oh No!

Both Bella and Willow are going for their next puppy visits to the vets. Both have to get a set of shots....poor girls.

I'm going to take a bit of Cheese-wiz to distract them during the needles. It worked like a charm for Willow last time. She didn't make a peep until after the needles were done and the vet had backed away. Our vet had recommended this "distractor", but only for vet visits - otherwise it is not the healthiest treat in the world.

I'll let you know how it goes.

OMG! Do I know that look. My previous dog, Oreo, was a pro at those eyes. He also climbed in my lap and would cling to me while on the exam table. My husband had never been to the vet with Oreo until last few years of Oreo's time with us. He didn't know what was wrong with Oreo because he kept asking to be in his lap. I told him - that's simply Oreo at the vet. He hated that place, even though everyone there loved him.

I would quietly sing to Oreo (You are my sunshine). I have no idea if it helped, but it helped me with my guilt. Well, time to load th girls up!

Whimsy is really good at the vet.... (I used to work there by the way)
I distract her with a small piece of cheese when she gets the vac and it works like a charm. We do some visiting with everyone and some more treats and she walks around a little bit and is quite comfortable. Once in a while I just pop in with her and say hello to everyone,, give her a treat and then leave....then it becomes someplace we go where she doesn't always get a shot..but always get something yummy!

The Fluffs just gobble a treat as they get their shots...Roscoe whined one time but other than that both of them are perfect at the vet. They LOVE Dr. Wilbur, though. I say "hey pups, wanna go see Dr. Wilbur?!" and they both wait and go crazy by the front door, lol!
