Vet Visit

Well, first, they pulled the vet switch on us. Mom waited until today just so we could see my favorite vet, but they pulled a switch on us. This guy was, well, okay I guess. He was messing with my wound and didn't warn Mom that he was going to squeeze it and make me yelp. I pretended to bite him and he got scared. Mom said, "warn me before you do that and I will hold him". So that is what he did next and Mom held me and I was good. Mom told him, "He hasn't bitten anyone ... yet." Looks like he thinks I have a "foreign body" inside me causing my wound that won't heal. This is just like last year. He wants to do surgery. Mom chose to not do that last year and try antibiotics for a while and then consider surgery. That worked last year. We are hoping it will work this time too. So, for now, I don't have to wear a cone, I feel fine but I will have to swallow four yucky pills every day for ten days. One good thing is whatever is causing my weeping wound doesn't appear to be as deep inside of me as what bothered me last year. Oh, and, the vet found a cyst on my neck. He said it was nothing to worry about, but if I do have surgery for the one thing, it might be good to just remove that.
Then the vet went to listen to my heart. He couldn't hear a thing! Mom said, "Well, I know he has a good heart." The vet laughed and went and got another stethoscope and listened to my strong heart.
So, I am good to go for a few weeks. I will try real hard to heal that thing during this time. But even if I do need an operation, I am fine. Oh, I hope if I do have to have an operation, that I don't have to wear the cone. That is what I hate most of all.

Thank you Abby & Flicka!
Mom tried hiding the pills in cheese, peanut butter, wieners, etc. I can smell the pills from a mile away. I have no problem eating the good stuff around the pill and then spitting out the pill. So, Mom has to wrestle with me a few times a day and try and get them in me. When Mom was little she had to take these giant, gross, penicillin pills. They were gross and too big for her to swallow. So her Mom mushed them up in honey for her to eat. It was still disgusting and now Mom doesn't even like honey! My pills smell the same and Mom almost pukes every time she opens the pill bottle to give me my pills.
