Thursday was a chilly day here. So chilly that there was nothing much playing on squirrel tv, seemingly it was too cold even for the squirrels to come out and play.
Luckily I had booked an appointment for the vets on Thursday morning and there is one thing Molly just loves to do is go for a ride in the car. I wanted to get the bloodwork done to make sure she doesn't have any heartworms and pick up some more steroids.
I have got her down to 1/2 a pill per day, and that is what we are going to keep her on for the foreseeable future. She has also lost 4lbs since she was last at the vets, and is down to 40lbs now, so that was another positive. Molly does have an ear infection at the moment, but I have that under control. Ear infections and Beagles go hand in hand.
However, the vet is pushing me to give her Advantage for flea control. I am undecided about it, although it is an external application and not something she has to ingest, so that is a positive. I have had her on a sprinkling of organic garlic powder for flea control which I thought would be better? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
When Molly got back from our outing she was pooped and laid down on the ottoman in the sun relaxing:
Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made.
