We have been blog slackers lately, but wanted to give an update on Macho's dental cleaning!
On Friday we took Macho to the vet to have his teeth cleaned, and as usual, I was terrified about how this would go. I need to stop being so worried about Macho because he did great! The vet brought Macho out of his carrier to let him walk around and be comfortable. When she picked him up to put him on the table he was fine. He was pretty scared when she started to listen to his heart and check out his teeth, but was fine again when she stopped. When she picked him up a second time he was completely calm, I couldn't believe it. Just an hour earlier when I picked him up to put him in his carrier, he fought me like crazy!
Macho stayed at the vet for a few hours, and we found out that he only had to have one tooth pulled. He also had his nails trimmed while he was under (thank God!), and they found out he had an ear infection. All weekend he wouldn't sit by me on the couch, and I am assuming that is because he was afraid I would grab him again to take him back to the vet! He will lay with me on the bed, and just this morning he sat with me before I left for work. He must not be holding a grudge anymore!
The worst part about this is that his leg looks terrible. They said they had a catheter in his leg, so that must be why it looks like this. But doesn't it look awful? I hope it goes away soon and that it isn't causing him too much pain!
We need to go around and read all the other blogs that posted this weekend, but have been so busy with Macho's teeth and recovery that I haven't had a chance. But no worries, we will catch up soon :)
We hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day, even if it is just a little Hallmark holiday!
