Happy Dogs, Healthy Dogs

Hard to believe but it’s been nearly a year since we left Merida, Yucatan, MX.

One of the things that will always mark the anniversary will be the dogs checkups.

Today the girls went to see their new vet; Dr John Gray at Boulevard Animal Hospital.

A while back I inquired via a facebook page for our area about veterinarian recommendations, his name was mentioned several times.

So one day I stopped in and just sat and watched people come and go; and I talked with the office staff and a vet tech.  I liked what I observed and felt.  The office is clean, although a bit dated.  I met Dr Gray and spoke with him too.  So without checking other recommendations I decided to give him a go.

Today the girls, yes, all 3, and yes, all at once, went in.  Thank goodness Tom was able to come along.  Wrangling 3 dogs is a bit of a chore.

One super cool thing is the rabies vaccine is good for 3 years.  The girls got a check over, weight, exam of eyes, ears, and general body check.  Temperatures, heart rates, and weights were taken.  Tech and Rubi conveniently dropped a load while walking around the vet grounds so fresh stool samples were checked on them, all clear by the way so I won’t be collecting from Ceniza.  They got the rabies, and the DHLPP, which protects against distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parainfluenza and parvovirus.

And we got a 10% multi dog discount, SWEEEEEEEEEEET!


They have been pronounced to be in excellent health, an excellent weight, and overall the vet was impressed with them.   These girls are so good they even had the staff calling them well behaved.  You guys know different!

    I love how Ceniza can even ‘hide’ in this photo.
