Warning… not a topic for “while eating” reading.
Sissy isn’t cooperating. She had her annual visit weeks ago, and the vet sent us home with a specimen cup in a discrete brown sack. Normally, they “grab” the sample during the exam, but since Sissy’s glands needed a squeeze, the dear vet didn’t want to traumatize Sis. (Yes. Wondervet used THAT word, because evidently, she loves a DIVA.)
Problem is, Sis has decided that my poop-watching days are behind us. She simply won’t go when I can watch, and wait, AND have the time to run the sample across town to the vet’s immediately thereafter.
What’s a dog-ma to do? I’m thinking that I should just toss her in the car and let them do their normal rectal sample. I mean… really. I’ve been patient. And somehow, the girl KNOWS when it’s safe to poop.
Does your vet do a stool sample annually? I mean, it makes sense, especially for Sis…
Thanks for putting up with our less than lovely topic today. Maybe next post, we’ll discuss Gretchen’s first ACE experience. I’m a little worried, but not as worried as I am about her panic attacks she has on road trips.
