Victory: Clean Bill of Health!
We recently took Victory to the vet and her exam went well and Victory’s labs came back normal! Doug and I were so relieved! We had a tricky time doing a free catch urine sample this week, but Victory fortunately cooperated with us — but it took the two of us to get her urine sample!
Victory did really well at the vet’s office and she likes her new vet! After much research and interviewing, Doug and I found a vet that we believe is a good match for us and Victory! Doug and I believe that it is very important to have a vet that we can trust and work well with. However, we hope that our vet visits will be infrequent and only for well visits! While we were at the vet’s office again earlier this week for Victory to receive her Lyme vaccine, Victory again hopped up onto a chair in the waiting room like a human! She did really well again at the vet’s office and she has gained some weight which is good. When Victory was found and rescued late this summer by the Michigan Sheltie Rescue, Inc., she was a mere 14 pounds and now she is 20 pounds! While at the vet, Victory also had her nails and paws trimmed! She is looking good!
Victory is doing well and we are so happy that Biscuit sent Victory to us! Each day she is gaining confidence. She is still giving us licks/kisses and she loves licking ears and eyelashes — who would have guessed! Earlier this week, minutes before Doug’s alarm went off, he was greeted with warm licks in his ear from Victory! Victory might be Doug’s new alarm clock!
