xing goes to the v-e-t

xing sez:

My Mommy noticed that i had a bump on my upper lip, right next to where my upper left fang would be (if i had one, but i don't, and nobody knows why i don't, not even me!). so she took me in the brand-new PTU to see dr. harders. it is a furry nice PTU, and she bought it just for us with her very own christmas gift money--THAT's how much My Mommy loves us! i don't even understand what the big whoop is about going somewhere in it--it's beautyful, an' has a soft padded bottom that my toeses can grip so i don't slide around! an' screens on the ends, so i can see what's goin' on around me. if i don't like what i see, i just curl up and put my tail ofurr my eyes!!

anyway, dr. harders's tech examined me first, and then she came in. i told her the tech had tried to do a rude thing with a thermometer, but i had insisted that he NOT do it. just as i finished saying it, in he came again, and she HELPED HIM do the rude thing to me. i consider that furry unsporting, but then that's my life--the boycats gang up on me at home. but i love dr. harders and trust her, so i let them. i am normal. WELL! i could have told them THAT without sticking a thermometer . . .

anyway, she weighed me (7.8 lbs) and examined me all ofurr and looked specially at my lip and chin and throat. mom told her i have scabs all ofurr me from scratchin' at the fleases that darn cocoa-dawg brings in. so she looked at those owies, and at my chin again, an' she said i has eosinophillic granuloma complex. it is 'cause i am lergic to the fleases. so now i have to be frontlined (and i HATES that spray), and i have to take prednisone for lotsa days (which she says will tone down the itchies a lot). My Mommy will keep a close eye on my lip boo-boo, but it will go away with the medicine.

what the boycats don't know is, THEY have to be frontlined, too, and also the dawgs. tee-hee. i'm not tellin'!! they'll find out soon enough!

and My Mommy asked me to tell you she's finally getting the pictures in shape to show you some secret paws package fun. but don't hold your breath; she's busy lovin' on me!

Well, that frontline wil get rid of those awful fleasies, so that is good.

That is a lovely PTU........Maybe I wouldn't hate going so much if Momma got one like that......no, on second thought, I probably would.

That's a very stylish carrier you have. I'm glad that it wasn't something serious!

Daisy said...

I hope you get better soon. I just had to go to the V-E-T too. You have a very nice carrier!

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

Cocoa's allergic to fleas too. If one bites him, he goes nuts with itching till his furs gone and his skin's ouchy. It sounds like you're a very good girl at the vet, and I like your carrier. Ours is HUGE, and all three of us can lay in it comfortably, but we don't want to actually be IN the thing.
purrs and cuddles to handsome Ed
