UA-60701407-50 My Trip to the Vet....Twice - Golden Daily Scoop

My Trip to the Vet....Twice

Well it was bound to happen, mom found a hot spot on me...

She said I had to go to the vets to get it shaved and cleaned was going to be really quick.

Nooooooo!!!! I tried to protest but off to the vets I went.

After a quick shave, the vet sent me home with some medicine to make sure there is no infection. Thirty minutes after taking it, I woke mom up.

I just didn't feel turned the lights on and a whole bunch of HBO words flew outta her mouth.

That's right, I blew up like a blowfish! After making sure I was breathing alright, being the typical blogger, mom grabs the camera.


Of course by this time the vets have closed and the nearest ER is 40 minutes away. So before I know it I had benadryl shoved down my throat and I was off on my 2nd trip to the vets!!! 

Here I am with dad after my first shot of benadryl.

And here I am planning my escape after feeling much better!

This place ain't so bad after all!!!


Maggie waited up for me til the wee hours of the morning. Actually, I think she was just wondering why she didn't get to go for a ride! BOL!

Today, I'm exhausted! Mom kept waking me up during the night to make sure I was ok.

She slept with a tiny flashlight under her pillow, guess it's better than that damn camera!

The one lesson I have learned through this whole ordeal:

There is no such thing as just a "quick trip to the vet".

And yes, I'll be milking this for allllll it's worth!


  1. poor thing!! Bet your momma was pretty scared. Hope you are feeling better (remember to milk this for all it's worth :)

  2. OMG...what did they give you?! What a day and night...may I just say that your hot spot is in an unusual spot. You must have a quite the turn on your head to be licking that spot. Oh boy...oh boy.

    Our Annie had her share of hots spots. May I suggest to your have you wear a cone to keep you from licking it. I know, I know..the cone of shame but you need to keep it dry. That will make it go away the fastest. Our Annie sometimes seemed to be in a cone for along time but the hot spot healed up much faster that way than if we hadn't put one on.

    Take care Miley...sending your puppy hugs!

  3. Oh no, what a crazy night! I hope you are feeling better! I like your style too - planning your escape, wanting a snack out of the machine, nice work there, nice work!

  4. Oh, those hot spots are so bad. Mom was smart to try to catch it fast. Guess you won't be taking those meds any more. Glad you are doing better, Miley. Maggie is such a sweet sister.

  5. You're right about there not being such a thing as a 'quick trip to the vet,' just as there is no such thing as a little hot spot!! I hope you're feeling better very very soon, and your Mom catches up on her sleep!! :-)

  6. Oh no! I am so sorry you are not feeling good....I hope you will be better VERY soon!

  7. Wow buddy - so happy you were able to alert your Mum and she could get you to the vets…..

    You need a good rest today and lots of spoiling!!

    Take care my friend,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  8. Yep, you're correct - there is no such thing as a quick trip (or cheap) to the vet.

    I'd be milking this one too. :)

  9. Oh my gosh! Your Momma must have been so upset! (in between pics, of course. heehee!) I sure hope you got your meds straightened around. It must have been pretty scary for everyone. You rest up and get well!

  10. Oh my gosh-- 2 trips to the vet. Glad you woke them up and they got you there as fast as they could. Glad you're doing better. Sounded scary!!! think you deserve a lot of spoiling.. Hey Mom hope you are feeling better after that scare..
    Ernie, and the pack

  11. Hey Miley!
    Wow, I'm so sorry about your double-dogtor trip! Sounds like having the hot spot would have been better than that nasty reaction. I'm sure that the goodies in that candy machine helped you feel better! BOL
    Grr and Woof,

  12. Those kinds of things usually happen on the weekends for us! :)

  13. Oh no! We both understand and have had those blow up moments after the vet was supposed to have fixed us up... and we know how our Mama shouted those HBO words too!

  16. I am so glad you are ok now. I have a lot of skin problems too. I just had to get shaved and am taking prednisone and antibiotics so I understand what you mean. I am so sorry you got blowed up and had to go back. Sleep well and sweet dreams.

  17. Not the kind of adventure one looks forward to, but glad it turned out OK. Those hot spots can be so vexing and of course nobody likes to go about sporting a shaved spot in their furs, but I suppose it is really the best way to get better fast.


  18. First Miley I am very glad that you are okay! Two trips to the VET in one day? Horrors! You sure did look a bit puffy though from your reaction to the meds. :O Hope y'all get some rest tonight! Very nice of your sis to wait up fur ya. Good sissy! :)

    Waggin at ya,

  19. Well, all I can say is thank goodness you knew to wake up your mommy! You are so smart. So sorry you had to go through this Miley. Your mom is a quick thinker, good thing she had benedryl on hand. I'm praying your ordeal is just a think of the past now and you can get on to some good livin!

  20. Arrghhh that hot spot! Thank goodness for benadryl! Feel better soon. : )
