Mom called

well mom called. she got to the campsite safely.
they were making dinner when i talked to her. then they were going to make a camp fire and sit around and have drinks.
she said its a really nice place. there is lots to do for the kids. its on a farm, so there are lots of animals, and there are tractor rides and lots of other things for the kids to do.
she said the place was really big and very crowded, lots of families making the most of the long bank holiday weekend!

The vets!

It went well at the vets. I spent way more than I thought I would have to though. Why is it when you go for one reason, you always end up having to do more and more things and spend more and more money! I had to get his ears cleaned, and he had to get more solution for cleaning his ears, a specific kind that will help to get rid of the yeast in his ears, the vet said it looks like he has a yeast infection in his left ear. he got his top up vaccination which was free, but then I had to buy him a flea treatment, but it lasts 3 months so thats a plus. Overall I spent 92 euro, but partly that was down to having to buy his food too which was 50 euro! so overall the ear solution and flea treatment cost me 42 euro. I am glad he’s ok though. So it could have been worse I suppose! He’s healthy and thats all that matters.

Vets tomorrow with Nitro

Have to take nitro back to the vets for a top up of his booster shot. He got his vaccinations 3 weeks ago but he was 3 months late getting them so the vet told me to come back in 3 weeks so he can have a top up. and tomorrows the day we’ll be going.
the top up is free so that is good. the reason he was late was because I hadnt enough money at the time when he was due to take him!
I hate that he was late but there really was nothing I could do about it!
I’m going to walk to the vets office tomorrow morning with my mom, that way I’ll be getting my daily exercise in as well as making sure nitro is ok!
So its win win for us all!
I also need to get dog food. I ran out this month somehow! I ended up having to buy a 1 kg bag of food towards the end of last week. I rarely run out so it was annoying to have to do that as the 1 kg bags arent worth the price of them!
Anyway hoping all goes well tomorrow! Prayers that it will!
thanks,

nitro’s ear problems

nitros ears are still full of wax, despite me putting drops in every day, twice a day. its so annoying, that no matter what i do or try his ears dont clear up. its uncomfortable for him, and I wish I could sort it out for him. He is very good, he lets me put in the drops without any issues. I think he actually enjoys having me massage his ear for him. He stands and pushes his head into my hand, its just his left ear, the right one is ok. He has to go back to the vets next week for a top up booster shot, I might ask her to deep clean his ears for me. I also have an ear cleaning solution that I also clean out his ears with. The poor pup he’s such a good dog. and he’s so uncomfortable. I hate seeing him suffering. I love my boy so much and I’d never want him to suffer in any way. I wish there was a magic cure.

nitro is so happy in the sun

nitro is just loving the sunshine, well thats when he’s not exhausted from it, but yesterday, I gave him an empty water bottle, and he proudly pranced around the garden with it in his mouth, teasing our dads dog biggie as if to say, look what I got lol. Biggie tried to then chase him, but nitros way too fast and can easily run rings around him. Well biggie is 12, and a little bit on the chubby side so…no wonder nitro can run faster than he can lol.
but he really enjoyed playing in the garden, he loves going to my parents house, as there is another dog to play with, and he enjoys that, and today my parents will be taking on my sisters two pugs, while she’s off to spain for two weeks.

Nitros vet visit

just got back from taking nitro to the vet. vets are not cheap! that was a quick 125 euro spent let me tell ya.
but he’s worth it, so worth it.
he got his yearly kennel cough vaccination and he also got his yearly booster shots for other diseases.
that alone was 60 euro. then she cleaned out his ears, his left ear is giving him trouble, he only had it cleaned a few weeks ago, and now its full of wax again, he has ear issues though, he’s always had them since he was young. so she gave me drops to put in for 10 days. the drops were 15 euro, dog medication isnt cheap at all!
I also had to get his food for the month, another fifty euro on that.
Thank god I had enough money to cover all that. I have to take him back in 3 weeks time for a top up booster shot, but she said that would be free of charge.
The vet absolutely adores nitro. I love the vet, I think she is such a kind caring person and she really knows her job. And you can tell she loves animals.
Now we are home and of course as soon as we got in I ran the fan, its 26 degrees c here right now and I’m baking.
