When Daisy looked out the window on Wednesday morning to see her new pal, Max, park his van in front of her house she wiggled and barked all the way downstairs
but as soon as a stranger yelled, "Cheese!", Daisy was silent and then smiled broadly, hoping for a piece of cheese as a reward
Or was she going to jail? No, Daisy, you are not as small as Mr. Penguin so you aren't going behind bars anytime soon.
And then Daisy watched Dr. Brandt as she listened carefully to Mr. Penguin's heartbeat. Daisy hoped the doctor would listen to her heart too but that didn't happen either.
The reason why Daisy was in the van became very clear to her when the vet tech and the doctor examined her long, droopy ears. Daisy had been shaking her head back and forth for awhile and I was concerned that she could have an ear infection and ....
when Daisy heard me say, "Ewww!", and the doctor say, "Yeast Infection!" Daisy knew what was coming....
Two bottles of medicine along with explicit instructions to put drops in Daisy's ears for 10 days and to clean her ears regularly, especially after swimming.
To be honest, Daisy was very happy with everything about the vet visit until the word "medicine" reached her ears and who can blame her? Daisy changed her mind about the medicine after just 2 days of treatment and she now says that Dr. Brandt and company are welcome to visit again soon!
Having a mobile vet in New Hampshire is a brand new service to pet owners throughout the seacoast and to some cities nearby. Daisy and I found Seacoast Veterinary Housecalls to be convenient, cost-effective, and very intimate. If you have a mobile vet in your area, what are your thoughts about the service? If you don't have a mobile vet, would you like one? And why? Please voice your opinions! I'd love to read about them!
