Pebbles Visits the Vet

I guess I should call this the Smore and Pebbles blog.

Well the vet was just as perplexed as I was about Pebble’s episode Saturday. My vet is a husband/wife duo, and Pebbles has only seen the wife up until today. I also brought up my concerns about he supposed skin tag on her side that has been around for quite a while. The wife said it was just a sin tag and not cancerous.

However, while the husband was inspecting it, it came free, and he discovered it was a sebacious cist caused by a gland blockage.It was so gross as he cleaned it out.I’m glad I didn’t continue to pursue being a vet. Seriously, it was bleeding and there was this cottage cheese like stuff inside. ICK!

She’s on amoxicillan, but thankfully it’s pills instead of liquids (I can’t stand the smell of it because I toook it so often as a kid for earaches). She gets them every 12 hours and a peroxide cleaning twice a day as well. In two weeks I’m expected to all and tell them how she’s doing.

If she has a reaction like that again in the future, I’m to write it down so we can figure out what caused it. He said it also didn’t sound like a typical allergic reaction because of how quick it was, but it was definitely possible. I now have benadryl on hand for her. I also found out my vet does have after hours.

I feel like I made a million mistakes thus far with my doggie since I moved here, and many more on Saturday. I should have been better prepared. Thankfully everything was okay, and I’m better prepared for the future.

She gets her bloodwork results back tomorrow. It’s an old age blood screen plus a deramaxx sreen since they sometimes have liver trouble after taking deramaxx. Hopefully all comes back well.

She cried the whole time, as typical with her. Hope they enjoyed her song choice.

Pebbles could smell that Smore had been in my car I think. She kept smelling where her carrier usually is. Smore was also unhappy that I didn’t play with her before Pebbles appointment.

I’m going to go make it up to her now. I even bought her a new toy. I swear I buy her something new every time I go to the store it seems like. I’d buy toys for Pebbles but she doesn’t like to play. I bought her some pig ears and a greenie, but one of them gave her the runs. 🙁

So tomorrow should return to more tripawd pet specific. Pebbles just needed some attention, and I was worried about her. 🙂 and now to go give Smore her new toy! Hope she likes it.
