Vet visit!

Khloe started yelping out of nowhere Sunday morning, his back legs seemed to be stiff and he was a little more sleepy than usual. He'd had a similar issue a few years ago; his old vet chalked it up to something with his hips and gave him a steroid shot - so I figured that was the problem again (we'd been out at the family cabin, so I was thinking that he just overdid it out there - poor guy never knows when to stop!), kept him quiet until we could get him in to the vet yesterday.

The vet examined him and thinks he pinched a nerve in his neck. Poor guy! He's gotta take it easy for a while (vet said to "get his exercise in the backyard") and take a painkiller/anti-inflammatory for a week. The pill is supposed to be chewable, but of course Khloe won't eat it, BOL. It's gonna be a long week - he's already started his "take me for a waaaaalk" crying.

He also gained about 3 pounds since his last vet visit, so he's about 68 pounds now. Good, imo. I thought he was a little skinny.

On another note, we switched Khloe to Orijen on Friday. Picky-butt really seems to like it. :)
