A cookie a day keeps the vet away?

It seems this was the weekend for going to the vet! In the blogging world Puglet thought needing a special vet would be cool and caught himself a case of hives. Salinger learned all about the good drugs when he had a cyst removed from his foot.

Me, I just spent Friday night getting my yearly check-up and vaccines. Not so exciting. I can tell you that I am ready for tick and mosquito season with several vials of Revolution at the ready, I tested negative for heartworm and I do have a grade 2 luxating patella that may not be bothering me quite yet, but may be worth watching in the future. I was a bit shocked when I was informed I’ve reached a whopping 15.5 pounds, but the nice vet assured me I was at a very healthy spring weight. Finally I can say I have complied with Winnipeg laws and am now registered with the city.

While we were visiting the vet we ran into Becky, one of the coordinators of Manitoba Mutts Dog Rescue. She was in having 4 newly rescued dogs checked out, three of which were a very pregnant momma dog with her two seven-month old puppies.

On Saturday, mum spent a few more hours at the vet’s office without me. More on that tomorrow.

About Sabrina's Pug Tails

My name is Sabrina. I am a three year old fawn pug who lives with my three humans and my brother-cat Shinobi. I came to live with my family in February of 2010. I don’t remember much about my life before that. I know that I didn’t have a nice warm bed to sleep in or soft couches to lay on. I was rescued from my previous life by the Boston Terrier & Pug Rescue of Southern Manitoba along with my brother, sister and mom. My human mum tells me that some dogs work at being smart and some work at being cute, and I am very, very cute. I think there may be some kind of insult here………

    Sabrina,
    What’s a luxating patella? I hope it doesn’t bother you in the future!
    Love,
    Payton

    • Hi Payton! Thank you for visiting my blog.
      I found this information on http://www.pugman.com
      The patella (“Knee Cap”) is a small bone that protects the front of the stifle joint. The patella is held in place by ligaments and slides in a groove in the femur called the trochlea. If the groove is too shallow, the knee cap will slip out when the knee bends. When the knee cap slips out of the groove this is called “patellar luxation”. Patellar luxation is usually an inherited defect which occurs during the developmental stages of the fetus and is rarely acquired as a result of trauma.

    Whew! Good thing you got your license Sabrina…it’s a $250 fine for unlicensed dogs in Winnipeg. That’s a lot of treats!

    GR8 you gor physicalled and all. My Mommy thought she missed the deadline for my license and was surprised when she got the check back in the mail. Turns out she had gotten a multiple year license for me and just needed to file the compliance reports for shots, etc. She is so silly sometimes.
    Love Noodles

  4. I HATE typos!
    I meant got physicalled not gor physicalled.

    So the BIG question….what kind of yummables did you get from the VET????

    Glad you got a clean bill of health!

    Love,
    S-Dog

    • None! can you believe it? There was a big jar of cookies on the counter but I wasn’t offered a single one. Oh, and when we went through the drive-through at Starbucks, the humans were told that the Canadian franchises don’t do pup-cups. When we got home I was given a some yummy pizza crust and lots of snuggles.

  6. The vet warned us that Gus might have the same luxating patella issue. We hope that’s not the case. It’s good news that Sabrina is only at a grade 2 right now. Fingers crossed that it never gets any worse!
