VET = Very Expensive Trip

Monday CSP & I loaded up all the pugs and went off to their yearly vet check up. On the way there they were all smiles. The pugs look pretty happy on the way to the vet. At one point traffic was stopped on the highway as this guy wrangled a huge turtle off the road with what looked like a length of seat belt. Forgive the glare on the photo, couldn’t get the window down in time. Guy on the side of the road saving a GINORMOUS turtle! So nice of that guy to risk life & limb for the turtle. Cause that turtle was pissed. He didn’t realize his life was being saved.
The vet report: Zoe- everything’s fine. She’s weighing in at 12 lbs. She had the best time there. Molly- needs to lose some weight. She’s up to 25 lbs. Yikes! Kiki- Also needs to lose a couple pounds. She’s coming in at 17 lbs & our vet would like to see her at 15. Kiki is our problem child. She is allergic to grass (convenient since our yard is covered in it). She’s been on allergy meds for a couple years. But this go ’round, not only did our vet up her dosage (during pollen season) but she diagnosed an ear infection in Kiki’s right ear and noticed scarring on her corneas. Her nose wrinkle has grown with age and is apparently rubbing on her eyes. So guess who’s getting a face lift? MY DOG. I could go for higher, perkier boobs and an iPhone, but instead my pug is getting plastic surgery. Of course we will do anything to keep her healthy and comfortable, so we’ll figure it out.
On the way home from the vet the pugs were pooped. On the way home from the vet the pugs just look pissed. Look at how they are looking at me! As a friend of mine pointed out, they are most likely thinking “Bitch, please”.

  1. Tell me about it. When we took the pugs to the vet the other day…we thought it was going to probally be like…$50 or something. It was like $300!!! Yikes!

  2. I need to make a VET trip soon, too. My kitty needs a rabies shot and I’ll probably get talked into getting her teeth cleaned.

  3. Why can’t we just cover them under our health insurance? It would be soooo much cheaper!! lol

    How much do they think her face lift is going to cost?

    And I am very familiar with that last look…..

  4. I have spent over 1,000 in the past 2 months on 2 of the 4 dogs! What kind of allergy meds does your vet give your dog? My vet gives us an antibiotic and I never understood that since my dog is allergic to pollen.

  5. what a group in the front of the car! and such excitement along the way…. Does your Vet do house calls? Ours come right to our house for vaccinations and such…when all 4 of our pugs need vetting he comes here but if it is just a individual app we will drive over….
