Après Vet

Comang had his annual appointment with the vet today. The doctor gave us a clean bill of health and praised my little guy many times over for his good behavior.

I was so proud of my little man — he didn’t even flinch as the vet administered the rabies and distemper shots!

Did you know that a Chihuahua and a Great Dane get the same dosage of the rabies vaccine? And since Comang is a small dog (he weighs about 15 lbs), the vet warned me that he might act lethargic or sleepy from the shots.

The doc’s prediction proved correct. As soon as we got home I gave Comang a Milkbone for being such a good sport…which he proceeded to gobble down in record time and promptly pass out.

Comang continued to sleep, reposition himself, and sleep some more, occasionally letting out a sigh to display his discomfort. Here’s a shot I took just now:

I feel so bad for the little guy! I can only imagine how I’ll feel when it comes time to give my children their vaccinations.

The good news is that the vet declared Comang the healthiest (and best-behaved) dog he’s seen all day. I’m proud of you, munchkin! Hang in there just a bit longer and you’ll feel better soon!

    Man, I love compliments from my vet! I always feel bad when it’s time for Millie’s shots. The poor girl cries and just snuggles to me to sort of brace herself for it. :\
