Hi everypuppy and everycat! It's me - Amber! I got to go to the Spa yesterday! Or at least that's what Mom told me. I should have known something was up when I didn't get my breakfast, though. Hmm.
Anyway, I had my semi-annual Senior Care exam at the Kansas State University Vet Med Teaching Hospital. When we got into the Admissions area, I made sure everyone knew I was there so they could get everything ready. Mom said we'd wait outside for some reason, so we did some exploring for a while.
Me at the KSU Vet Med Teaching Hospital
While I was out there, I met a very nice Great Pyrenees boy - or as I told Zim later, at least a pretty good one. :)
Before too long, some very nice students came out and met us and we went back inside. Once I was in the exam room, I was quiet and cooperative -- for a Siberian Husky. My students, Sara and Jen and a couple freshman, were all very nice to me and were very good at examining me without being intrusive! They're going to be very wonderful vets! I also got to see Rachel the Vet Tech and Dr. Nelson! They did all kinds of things to me, to include a full body massage, and said I was a good girl and Mom was pleased with all the news they gave her. Yea!
Unlike my mom who starved me that morning, they gave me cookies - and even squirted CHEESE on them! Dr. Nelson did that - isn't she wonderful?!?
Jen and Sara had heard about our blog and asked if we were going to blog about my visit. Sounded like a good idea to me! I even posed with them! Here we are:
(If I look odd, my eyes were dilated.)
Once we got to Discharge, I made my presence known again (how else will they know whose paperwork to pull?), then we headed home.
Not really a day at the Spa, but I did get a massage, had my nails done, and had some quality girl-time. A big thank you to Sara and Jen, the freshman team, Rachel and certainly to Dr. Nelson! You all are a key part of helping us all stay in top form!
