If you are friends with me on Facebook, you may have seen that Schultz, my giant German Shepherd, was not feeling well.
Let me tell you about his vet visit.
We took him to the vet where he was examined. It was discovered that he had two ear infections, a skin infection, and a bunch of soars on his tummy and neck. He was a canine catastrophe. Schultz did not like being poked and examined. There was lots of yiping and whining and snapping at the vet. I'm sure it didn't feel good. But when they got out the razor to shave his neck, he decided enough was enough.
I'm not sure how he did it, but he escaped from the back room and made a beeline for the front door. All you could hear were dogs in the waiting room barking, the scrambling of feet across the floor, and the vet yelling, "SCHULTZ!!!!!"
It was chaos and mayhem!
All I have to say, is it's a good thing Schultz wasn't able to open the front door, or he would've ended up in Timbuktu.
Schultz is better now, but it's not fun shoving pills down his throat with our hands. Those are some mighty big teeth! (He's an expert in getting the pills out of the pill pockets and dropping them on the floor.) The good news is, he didn't have to get his neck shaved. The vet knew better than to mess with Schultz!
Have you ever had anything crazy like that happen with your pet during a vet visit?
