I went to the vet today for a preassessment appointment. They had to make sure I was ok to be put under anaesthetic to have my hips xrayed again. I had them xrayed back in April 2009 when I was only 10 months old and they didn't look so great :( There was even some mention of hip dysplasia. I don't like big words that sound scary! After the last xrays Mommy put me on Sasha's Blend and salmon oil, took me to the chiropractor on a regular basis and taught me how to swim.
We've been walking alot too, to keep me fit (and handsome :) Mommy wants to have my hips rechecked now that I'm all growed up so she knows if everything is working! All I know is I love going to the chiropractor and swimming and walking and the supplements just taste yummy!
We walked into the vets office and I was greeted by lots of nice ladies who were there just to pet me :) Then I got weighed, I was 88lbs! When we went into the office to visit the vet, she said I was a bit too round :( I need to loose a few pounds cause the extra weight isn't good for my joints. Oh, oh, that means less food and treats. Not good :(
She also said I have lots of muscle (Of course I do, I'm a big strong boy!) and good leg extension (what ever that means). Mommy was smiling alot, so that must be a good thing.
Everything looked good,so next wednesday I have to go in for my new xray. Cross your fingers for me!
Meanwhile, I won't be getting as much food as I deserve for supper today!
