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.

So glad she is losing that weight and making the vet happy but I sympathize --- I don't like going to the doctor either!

Me either....LOL....  I keep "thinking" that I have to at least go to my gyn....haven't been in almost two years since my doctor retired....but somehow the time gets away from me.  This year for sure....
