A Scawy Vet Visit

Mommy took me to the vet today. I've been peeing a lot since I always have to pee and it hurts a little. I peed on Mommy and Daddy's bed and Mommy noticed it had like a fine sugaryness in it. She said it was crystals and took me to the vet. We had to do a lot of waiting. Look what I saw while I was there:

Ideal weight of a pug 14-18 pounds?? I'm 16 pounds and people think I'm tiny. This does not seem right!!

We also saw a sign that reminded Mommy and me of our Airedale friends!

I was very anxious to talk to the doctor. She was the same one who took care of my mast cell tumor. She told us she was very concerned, that I have had a UTI before this year and that my pee pee was full of white blood cells and crystals. Last time, there were no crystals, which means I am worse. She was worried I could have stones inside me. I said I wasn't eating any rocks but she said I could still have them- I was pretty sad. They had to take me back for X-Rays. I've never had one before and it was really stupid it was just like a picture. She showed Mommy the pictures and lucky me there were no stones!!!!!

We were happy that there aren't any stones. I have antibiotics though and now I have to eat new food. And I get very sad when I think about this- no treats for a few weeks!!!!!!! Ugh! But then I will stop peeing in the house so Mommy and Daddy will be even happier. That's better than treats!

SOPHIE BFF!! I had NO idea you were having pee-pee problems! I mean, I knew you liked to leave some sprinkles around the house, but I never thought it could mean you are SICK!

Should I fly to Indy tonight and nurse you? Are you allowed to have margaritas??

I sure am glad that you don't have any kidney stones, but UTI's suck anyways - those antibiotics taste BAD!
Hope that you feel less crystally (I made that word up - hehehe) soon!

Oh, we're so glad they didn't find any stones, Sophie!! I wish my old poo poo vet had just done that with Clementine from the start of her UTI's almost a year ago!! Instead they wanted to do this and that and this and that and run a hundred OTHER tests that cost MONEY and never once did an X-ray to just see if there were stones!!!
Anyways, that's another story. We're glad you're OK and that your vet has a BRAIN and a mortgage payment that they can afford without ripping off their clientel.

Hoooray 4 Sophie! No stones! :) So cute!

The Devil Dog said...

Yeah, no stones. That is good news. A UTI is no fun though. Please take your meds like a good puggie and you will get better soon.
