We took a vacation day today.
All week the forecast was crappy but the day turned out to be gorgeous. The sunshine was lovely and being outside without a jacket on for the first time this year felt amazing.
This afternoon, the doggies had their annual check up at the vet. We're sort of broke after that but they are both healthy and happy and up to date on their shots, have their worm medicine (to take next week) and we are stocked up heart worm preventative for 6 months and glucosamine supplement.
A couple of years ago, when we moved house, we switched vets. Our old vet was okay. The techs were amazing the we were always being given the hard sell on their prescription food by the vet and it felt really gross. We feed our guys a very high quality food which is suitable for their food sensitivities and is made in Canada from human grade ingredients. It smells so good, I swear you could eat it. We always felt a little insulted by the way the vet tried to undermine our decision.
We now see Dr Jack at the Sydenham Veterinary Clinic and the dogs love him. They are always nervous to go to the vets but he's wonderful with them. The vet techs and reception staff are amazing too. It's a great location as well because it's situated on a large lot and you can have a nice walk around the property before your appointment.
Fortunately, there is nothing dramatic to report about their check up. Both dogs are snoozing right now as the drive up there and the shots have zonked them both out. We're very lucky to have such healthy pups!!
