Cleo went for her annual vet visit today....

I had received a card from our vet that Cleo was due for her Lyme booster; when I called to set up an appointment I was told she was overdue for her annual exam.  So, she went this morning.  Poor thing was so scared; she must have first thought she was going to the park....but when I turned in the opposite direction she got nervous.

Everything is fine....I'm so excited that she lost over 7 lbs. since last year!  The lite food and exercise is paying off...the vet was really happy.  The only things were a small cyst she has on her lower eyelid; we have to watch that it doesn't get larger; if it does then it has to come off.  Also, of course, her teeth.  I had bought these dental wipes which are really garbage; so I'll have to go back to the brush/toothpaste.  The vet also gave me some small tartar control biscuits.  She did say that nothing will completely eliminate the tartar she has now, but with more frequent brushing we can keep controlled for a while.  I know at some point she'll have to have a dental.

I won't let DH take her to the park today; I've never liked my dogs getting too excited on the days they go for their exams or get injections.  Hopefully tomorrow will be nice and she can go then.

I'm glad to hear that Cleo had such a good check-up! Losing 7 lbs. is great, I'm looking forward to the weather warming up for good so we can get the girls out for more regular walks. Teeth are always are our issues with check-ups, too, and both Maya and Lola are going to need to go in over the next couple of months for their dentals.

I know that Cleo will also need a dental at some point....but I'm trying to hold off.  If the vet ever told me that it was affecting her health then I would definitely need to get it done.
