Well this is more for me to relieve some anxiety before my vet visit this coming saturday.
Rowan (family dog who is elderly)= somewhat dog friendly (only small dogs), hates cats, and very picky with people
Daisy (my puppy) = scared of people, loves other dogs, and scared of cats.
Rowan needs a check up and new meds for his lymes disease
Daisy needs to be fixed
Well there appointment is one right after the other so I am bringing them in together. My anxiety however is soley on what our family dog rowan will do and what the vet will say about him..
Because of his history he is considered unsafe to be in public and the vet has a very good system that helps me get rowan into the office and straight to a room without hestiation and waiting in the lobby. No drugs just keep him moving. However he is old, and the lymes disease is taken its toll on him and we wont be able to get him into the back as fast as we usually do... this being said I don't think he will be a problem as long as other people don't let there dogs come near him since he is old and just wants to be left alone.
My nerves are high because I can't find his muzzle and will be holding him with two types of leashes and collars... he will have his face/neck collar all in one on with a leash and his harness with a separate leash. Then I will have a third leash on daisy...
Then on top of it because rowan is reaching the max age for great danes life expectancy I am scared the vet will recommend me to put him down considering age and the lymes disease issues... I don't think he is ready to go yet and I am very good about letting my animals go if its for the better but I think he still has some more months in him..not years but atleast a few months...
It will be one big party for me I just hope it all goes smoothly...luckily I canceled one of our cats appointments to get fixed at the same time as daisy..could you imagine old crazy dog with 2 leashes, a puppy hiding behind owner on leash and owner also carrying cat carrier... oh boy that would have been a sight...
