Last year my dog didn’t have his blood tested *opps*. It’s better to do it annually once your dog is a senior. I left him at the vet to allow him to settle down a bit before the ”’poking”’ procedure. However the vet only managed to shave some of his paw fur. My dog was too nervous and struggling like crazy! Kekeke
This year, I did the same thing. I left him at the vet again and I didn’t think the vet will have any success at all. But hey hey, they managed to retrieve his blood this time. Vet told me that when she brought out the needle, Chester was trying to get off the table and they got him to turn his head so that he didn’t see the needle. Haha *just like human
A small ‘botak’ (bald) spot at his right paw.
So today I dropped by the vet to hear what the doc has to say. Good news is his liver and kidney looks okay. Even his sodium level (which was over the chart 2 years ago) is fine now. The only worrying points are the slightly high level of albumin, globulin, hemoglobin and PCV. Vet suspect it’s due to tick infection. She rules out tumor as other readings are okay. However she did told me to monitor his behavior and physical condition. Well, this is something I’ve been doing for a long time coz I know dog can’t tell us when they’re sick so I have to pay full attention at his well-being.
Truthfully, I’m a little worry about this but I hope it’s nothing serious. *cheer up to myself
p/s: Found another hematoma at his left ear few weeks ago. This time it’s the inner area. Aiseh. At least it’s under control and doesn’t swell up that much already.
