Last week Chester went to the vet to have his annual vaccine jab. Due to the incompetence of the vet which we usually visited (I can still hear the doctor’s voice telling me: I don’t want to stress myself. I’ll refer you to another doctor), this time we visited a new clinic at Bukit Tinggi. It’s a bit further from our home about 15 mins away.
To the vet… vroom vroom!
Chester behaved very nicely at the clinic and during the checkup. He was calm and collected which I’m really glad. I thought it will be a male doctor but we got another female doctor again. What this doctor did differently from the one we usually went is that this doc check for the sound of Chester’s heart beat and his urine too. His heart beat is good btw. As for blood profile check, the previous doc always draw the blood from Chester’s arm but this doc get his blood from the neck. Eeeks! Hahaha

After the checkup and jab done, Chester decided to jump down from the examination table (his favorite thing to do!). Luckily the two helpers managed to stop him. Also kudos to them for calming and holding Chester while on the table.
Came back from the vet. Very happy.
I received the blood profile result today. Everything’s good except yet again the globulin is a bit high (4 years in a row) and the protein in his urine is +3 (not a good sign). The doc advice me to change his dog food to lamb (Chester is currently on Taste of the Wild – salmon) and then she’ll check on the urine’s protein level again in few months time to see if there’s any protein leakage from the kidney. I hope nothing’s serious. Pray for us.
p/s: Chester is 30kg at the moment and I’m trying to help him shed some weight. Maybe a kilo or two.
