Back from the vet with Whiskey

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Poor little guy Whiskey thought we were just going for a car ride, little did he know he was going to the vets office He's had a spot on his face for a few days now that's looked infected so i started him on antibiotics for it. (it's helped but it still needs to be drained.) That and he also has periodontal disease/etc because his previous owners were VERY irresponsible and did not take good care of him or his teeth. So tomorrow morning he's going to get his teeth scaled and cleaned and the vet is going to finish draining that spot above his eye. I think he'll feel a lot better after it's all over with!

The vet said he thinks Whiskey is between 5-7 years old and said he was the first Carolina Dog he'd seen! (he had a fit over him) Whiskey was very well behaved too! He didn't bark at any of the other animals and sat right beside me the whole time.

Oh yeah- and apparently i still have a job there whenever i want it They've been trying to talk me into comming to work there for them for several months now

Would ya'll mind sending little Whiskey some "good luck tomorrow" vibes?? I'd appreciate it!

(oh and on another good note- he now weighs 42lbs!!! (he was really underweight when we rescued him)

Thankyou soo much hon! I'm hoping it all goes well and he doesn't have any issues. I think he'll feel a lot better when his teeth are done and that spot by his eye is drained out a bit. He was SUCH a great boy today!! I was really proud of him!

Awww! Poor Whiskey! *hugs* Sending out lots of good vibes for him.

As for the job....why not take it? Is the salary better or worse than where you are? Do you get free vet care or a substantial discount with the job? It might be something to think about. You could maybe do volunteer at the shelter and still foster, time permitting.

I'm still considering it. They pay is about a dollar less an hour than what i make now- but i can get as many hours as i want and would get a raise quickly. I know all of the people up there and i am quite close to both vets. I love it there....but at the same time i just can not bare to leave the shelter....i absolutely love it there (granted there are days when i want to pull my hair out- but it's all worth it and it saves sooo many lives.) There is a world of a difference between working at a shelter and at a vets office....so i'm just taking a little time right now to weigh my options. I need insurance (mine is about to run out) and benefits - all of which the new job would offer me ...the shelter can't until next year at the soonest....so that is my big factor. I'm going to talk to the vet some more when i go to pick up Whiskey this afternoon about it. It would be a good opportunity. I might see if i can just try it out for a few days and see if i like it before i give them a yes or no answer.

Thanks hon Colin took him into the vet at 8 and they said we can pick him up around 2 this afternoon. I'm hoping all goes well. Colin said that Whiskey was good this morning when he dropped him off. (he gets soo nervous- so i was worrying about the little fella.) I already have a nice comfy crate set up for him to go in when he gets home this afternoon so i can keep a close eye on him as he comes out of his anestesia. Aww i bet he's going to feel much better after he leaves today with clean teeth and his little spot by his eye fixed

Thanks Helen Colin took him in this morning and I will go to pick him up this afternoon. I do hope that all goes well (i'm a little worried about him because he's soooo skiddish- i hope he doesn't freak out. But i know everyone up there- so i'm sure that they will take great care of my little man and make him feel right at home.)
