I took Gabby Abby to the Vet for her post adoption checkup.
She's been sneezing a bit which I think is from a touch of kennel cough from her being at the Humane Society with other animals.
The Vet checked her over and thinks that she might be much younger then the HS noted on her chart.
We had been told she was 1 1/2 years old. The vet seems to think she is about 8-9months old! (This would explain why she is still so tiny)
The good news is her kennel cough isn't real bad.
The bad news is she has a broken tooth and it needs to be extracted.
One of her back molars is decaying :(
We will be scheduling her to have tooth surgery in a couple of weeks--after she's done taking antibiotics for her kennel cough.
The antibiotics is in liquid form. We have to shove a eyedropper and a half full of the stuff down her tiny gullet once a day.
She was great the first time I gave it to her. The second time she wasn't having anything to do with it and protested mightily!
I wrapped her up in a towel and handed her to Lord V to hold while I attempted to get the medicine in her mouth. She wriggled and struggled to get out of the towel hold, swishing her head from side to side to avoid the medicine dropper--but we managed to get it down her right before she freed her back feet and dug her claws into Lord V's inner thigh!
I don't know who bellowed louder, him or her!!
