The vet will feel pain tomorrow.
I went home early today to get Ovar so we could go to the vet in the afternoon. Nova and Hector looked a bit surprised when they had to go to the dogyard but Orvar had to stay in the cottage, but they soon forgot him when I tossed in some treats in the doghouse 🙂 🙂 🙂 Orvar on the other hand was happy to jump in to the car instead. I’m not sure he likes to go by car but I don’t think he dislikes it either. He just lays down and falls asleep.
They put us in the examination room rather quickly and while we were waiting we heard what was going on in the other room. He was examining a German Shepherd that had problems with his anal glands. I doubt that anyone could miss that the dog was a bit “unhappy” 🙂 and suddenly we heard a roar and then the vet said something rather bad and I don’t think he said it to the dog 🙂 🙂 🙂 The dog had turned quickly and bit the vet in the thigh, the owner wasn’t ready for that and didn’t hold the dog’s head especially hard. But as the vet said after, the dog had warned and when he finally decided the vet had gone to far he acted. No one stops a German shepherd when that happens he said 🙂
No injuries on the vet though but it will hurt for a while, that’s for sure. But just seconds after that he came in and scraped some skin off Orvar and looked at it in a microscope. It turns out that Orvar has some kind of fungal infection and now I have an ointment that I have to put on him twice a day for three weeks. We were actually going home before we were supposed to be there 🙂 normally its very busy there and sometimes we have to wait for an hour or two 🙂 But they are the best vets I’ve met so I don’t mind waiting. For those of You that is interested in what this costed the examination was 450 kr (that would be around $ 65 (half of that price is social security contributions and taxes and some of the rest of that money goes to equipment and other things they might need and the rest is of course for wages, we tend to forget that when we pay our bill) and the ointment was 150kr ($ 22).
The temperature had started to drop already on our way home and now it’s down to -13,4 C (8F), fog has slowly placed itself just above the ground and the sky is clear, it will be a cold night! Tomorrow I’ll leave my car at the garage so they can fix the abs breaks and take a look at the rest of the car before I have to go to the vehicle inspection next week.
I have a fire in the stove and it will burn for a long time this night. I’ll make a pot of tea and a couple of sandwiches as well. Tonight they show the Guldbagge gala (that would be something like The golden beetle gala) Our Oscars so to speak, I think I’ll look at it for a while anyway.
Have a great day!
