Jenny's V-E-T Visit

Jenny's V-E-T visit was interesting. The V-E-T was trying to give her minimal amounts of anesthesia to knock her under since Jenny is 14 now, but Jenny is kinda strong and was very resistant to going under. Finally she went under and they did there work, and then they were pulling her blood but she woke up immediately after the gas was turned off, so they didn't really get enough so they just ran thyroid and kidney level tests. She does have a hyperthyroid so she needs the pills, which would explain her weight loss over the last couple of years. We'll have to see if she will take the pills in treats. Let's hope she does!

I really hope you will take your pills so you can get better. Mom usually lays me on my back and pries open my mouth and stuffs the pill down my throat! Hope it doesn't come to that for you.

Mindy here, Jenny..... I has to take low dose aspirin twice a week. At first I was very suspicious of dat ground up pill in my stinky goodness.Mom kept trying. Now I's used to this method and I eats it all, as long as mom keeps Moe away so's he doesn't bother me while I have it.
