Today we took Hestia to the vet for her yearly exam. It’s been pretty muddy, so I gave her a bath yesterday to clean her up for the vet. The only problem is that no matter how hard I washed, I couldn’t get the yellow out on her tail and legs! I keep making the case to Brad that I need some of that Chris Christensen White on White shampoo!
Anyway, we went to the vet and everything is normal. They said she’s at a perfect weight, everything looks very healthy. The vet was especially pleased with her teeth! And I have never ever brushed them before. But I do feed her raw, so she cleans her teeth every meal 🙂 It was nice to have the vet and techs ooh and aah over her.
They had to take her in back to weigh her, take some blood, cut her nails, etc. I always figure this is a great opportunity for Hestia to learn she can be away from me and still be OK, so I don’t go back with them. But what I didn’t count on was my emotional state! It was SO hard for me! I very nearly cancelled our grocery shopping trip afterwards, it was so hard.
Instead, though, I just carried Hestia and hid behind her in the grocery store. Brad let me get some organic gummy worms! That is a great way to get me to like going to the store! I got just one serving.
Now we are home and relaxing. Dancing with the Stars starts tonight, so I’ll be staying up late, but I have to leave the house at 6:15 AM to take a friend to the food bank tomorrow! That is very very early for me! But it is worth it. I’ll try to get a couple pictures of us there 🙂
