Becky and Ruairi
got "kenneled up" and
before we knew what was happening,
they left to go for their Vet visit.
at Carroll Veterinary Clinic.
He is our favorite doctor there
and we always enjoy seeing him.
(This is a younger, smaller Becky -
today she weighed 9 lbs 14 oz
and Ruairi weighted 10 lbs 5 oz)
sitting in the swing.
She wants to remind everyone
to take care of their pet's health.
She and Ruairi had their rabies
vaccinations today, plus distemper-parvo shots.
These are both important vaccinations,
but we can not stress enough
how important it is for you to give your pet
a monthly heartworm preventative medicine,
such as Interceptor.
And since we just lost our dear friend, Digby
to complications from a tick bite,
we also need to remind you how important
it is to use a flea/tick preventative such as Front Line.
Your peeps also need to do a daily check on you
to make sure there are no ticks that
have got into your fur -
it's their bite that will make you ill.
They can jump on for a ride,
bite you and then get off again.
Have your peeps mark your calendars
so they remember what days to give
you the treatments.
We get ours on the first day
of every month.
And be truthful with your Vet.
Our Vet is very prudent about vaccinations
and doesn't want to give us needless treatments,
but he needs to know what types of dangers,
i.e. fleas, ticks, etc,
that we encounter on a daily basis
so he knows the best way to treat us.
Have a great day and
remember "it's a jungle out there".
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh, Ruairi and Becky
