Lucas' First Puppy Pediatrician Appointment
Lucas had his first well puppy appointment at Russell Animal Hospital this afternoon. All of the staff at the hospital ogled over Lucas and came out of the other patient care rooms just to see him. Lucas seemed to be tired from his ride into Concord, so he just hung out in my arms and sucked up all of the attention. Dr. Clark thought that Lucas looked healthy and was just fine. She used extra tiny needles for Lucas' vaccinations. But he hated most of all the kennel cough vaccination that was dripped into his nose. He weighed 5 pounds and 2.5 ounces. They looked up Elleigh's records and she weighed 3 pounds and 9 ounces at the same age. Lucas got a trip to PetSmart for a new sweater, a tag for his collar, and a trio of puppy bones to chew since he was such a good boy at the vet's office. Again, he was so tired he let me just carry him around the store. Unfortunately, the spot between Lucas' shoulder blades where they gave him his shots has gotten sore this evening, so we have to be really careful when picking him up or touching him so he doesn't cry. He's sleeping on the couch right now with Michael. This seems to make him feel better.
