Last set of puppy shots!!!!! Yes!

Today the veterinarian wasn't our regular one. So the experience kind of sucked. She squirted his corona booster all over the place.. She took forever with doing his rabies vac, so Eddy got all yippy and squirmy and wiggly, and she had to get a helper. Then she lectured me, "Corgis are very protective of their bodies. Be sure to handle him a lot, like, touch his feet, his belly, his hindquarters.. that way he'll be better with the vet or when you'd like to clip his nails."

I said nothing, but wanted to say, "He has short nails, no ear wax, and minty-clean teeth. I handle him too much probably. He doesn't need treats anymore, he just lays there for me. He simply got impatient waiting for you to inject that vaccine!!"

"Whatever... stubborn corgi owner.. thinks she's so smart.."

I always request one of two vets where we go. They both seem able to handle that fact that my very big baby(Sparty) is going to be a real stinker without being mad at him. He has good reason to be scared to death due to some early medical problems and I just don't have patience for anyone who doesn't understand. Not all corgis are that touchy though. Izzy our other one isn't. There are too many Vet clinics around here to put up with a poor experiance.

I'm not being snobby-judgemental (I don't think!!). She was just weird, and my boyfriend said afterwards that he wasn't even comfortable asking her a question he had about flea bites, because she would probably have just said, "WELL, there's this thing called flea medication.." and launched into another lecture...

I've had to see two different people at the vets office when I've gone before but I can't imagine someone being that rude. :( Give someone a job title and they think they know everything huh?
