We only went to the vampires vet on Saturday for my results. We were supposed to go on a Friday but my cow was needed at work. I was going YahooooooOOO and a YahoooOOOOO and a woooOOOOOOFFFF.

Come Saturday and she remembered. She tricked me into the car. I thought we were going for car rides. I got tricked again... and we ended up at the vampires.

I was shivering and shivering and refusing to get down and this time i gave her a hard time. I jumped from seat to seat and she was like a crazy cow opening this door and that door. I think the vampires were laughing at her behind the glass doors.

I was finally nailed down caught and carried into them vampire's vet's office.

Dommy: Be with me will ya. These vampires are no good people. They just want my blood. All of my blood.

The cow: We are just here for the results. No more blood taking okay.

Dommy: Are you sure? They look like they want my blood.

The cow: Just results and stop shaking will you.

I was made to wait and i had to lie down on this cold metal thingy. Won't you be afraid if you were me. I am just a Curly with a weak heart you know. Why do you make me wait and shiver and make my heart go faster and faster. I got a murmur you know.

The door. My escape route... How do i open the dooorrrrrrrrrrrrrr... HELPPPPPPPPP!

Don't take my bloooooooooooood pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Don't take my bloooooooddddd.

YAY! We are done. Can we go get some ice-cream please.

They took all my blood.. All of my blood. I am so drained... The vampires took all my blood.

I am so tired i can't even open my eyes. I'll let my cow continue this post.


Dommy's bloodworks was good overall. He can go off the prednisone. His blood platelets has gone up a lot which is a good thing. His liver markings are not too great. Could be the prednisone that he was taking for a month.

The vets had a hard time taking another tube of blood from him this time as they need to check on his thyroid. They couldn't test with the earlier sample they took the other day as he has to have the medicine at least 4 - 6 hours before a blood sample is taken. I kinda messed up the timing in the earlier bloodworks and so i subjected him to another blood donation drive to the vampires. Poor guy. He was fidgetting so much, they got to get two vets in to get a sample. He was looking at me with the saddest eyes and telling me HELP ME HELP ME.

We also checked his eyes as i've noticed there are some grey areas. He's in the early stages of cataract. As the vet says, he'll see shapes but he cannot see very well now. Cataract operation is not an option as it is very expensive here and we do not want to subject him to so much pain and discomfort. As long as he is happy and eating well, we will enjoy our days of grace with him.

Thank you all for crossing your fingers, toes and paws. You are all great people. We are thankful to you for keeping Dommy in your thoughts and prayers.

He's back to being a robust dog at 8.4kgs today.

Dommy's cow.

Dommy you were a brave soul buddy - I hope you got your icecream :)

I know about the pednisone and liver levels and thyroid - its never ending :)

Thank you for your comment on allergies - I tried a barf diet but fred could never get past the chicken bones and was throwing up too much and then he started guarding his raw food around haylie and so we switched back to home cooked but thank you for your advice - this is the first time we have dealt with allergies!

Good job! Those vampires are evil

Stop on by for a visit!

BeadedTail said...

Oh noes! Those vampires just won't stop will they? We're glad you're getting better though. Hope you got some ice cream after all that!

houndstooth said...

Oh Dommy, this read like a scary Halloween story! They're after your blood! I think I might have nightmares about this. Stay strong, and give your mom a little break, because I think she really loves you!


Mr. Pip said...

Geez, I am a little afraid to go the vet now ...cause they might want my blood! I will be shaking like crazy!

I am glad you are doing better. I am sure those liver levels will get back to normal now that you are off the prednisone. You know that's what they gave my mom for her back. She had to be on it for 6 days. It worked so she is not complaining!

Your pal, Pip

Jon Terry said...

Oo..that sounds so scary!! You should get your ice cream for what they put you through. You have been brave, my dear friend.

I'm glad my vet is not taking my blood. All I know is that he's always feeding me with chicken meat that's why I like being on the steel table ^^

Keep staying healthy and know that we all love you lotsa :)
Good job to your mommy for helping you to your weight back on track ;)

Love ya,
Jon Terry
