A little of this and a little of that and everything in between…
For a nine year old girl Nellie’s teeth are doing very well. She had a dental cleaning 2 years ago when she was spayed.
The lymph nodes are palpated to make sure they are of normal size. If lymph nodes are reacting to an infection or if lymphoma in them they will be enlarged. You want to catch lymphoma early.
The heart is asculted to make sure no heart murmurs are heard or if there was a previous heart murmur it hasn’t gotten worse which may mean early heart problems. Nellie’s heart sounded fine.
The abdomen is palpated to make sure no tumors are felt. The spleen and intestinal tract are known for getting benine and malganent tumors. Her abdomen was normal.
Nellie weighed in at 74#. She is ~10# over weight. We are working on taking that weight off with diet food and exercise.
Nellie was vaccinated for Bordetella, Lepto and Lymes. Her heartworm test was negative. She is good to go for another 6 months when she will have another examination done.
A very special thank you goes out to Lydia, Rosalyn and Sugar from See Beautiful for the special gift I got in the mail last week. I didn’t get the package until after my See Beautiful blog post was posted so I am taking time now to say thank you for such a wonderful See Beautiful package which included a beautiful hand written note, some forget me not seeds, a bumper sticker and my favorite mimosa hand soap that smells out of this world. Thank you for seeing the beauty in me and sharing your beauty with me.
A little of That:
MK has taken to helping herself to the dogs food while they are eating. Glory shares, Gambler growls.
