I’m angry

22 Aug

We just took our dogs and the cat for their annual rabies shots.
Specs was a breeze… she got a little wild in the eyes, but kept still and devoured her treats when we got home.


Dingo was easy, though she wet herself when the needle went in. That must have hurt. Still hyper as ever. In fact, I strongly suspect there was caffeine in that shot!

Romany… my tough boy… is hurting. We used to give our dogs their rabies shots ourselves, having large dogs (a shepherd, a great dane and a rotweiller) and living on a small holding. We injected, as the vets did, under the skin. Last time, they injected the dogs into the rump, which is fairly understandable too. This time, they lifted the dogs’ hind leg and injected underneath the thigh…. close to… well… you know…. That must have hurt like crazy. Romany was crying all the way home and his leg kept twitching. He couldn’t get comfortable lying, or standing. Sitting was out of the question. He refused all treats. Poor baby. He’s so miserable. I gave him some Eco-heal, a homeopathic remedy for dogs, which speeds healing. He’s looking more chipper now, but still sorry for himself. What on earth makes them inject under there??? There’s so much that the needle can hit and cause damage to!
