Shadow and Zimba
Went for health check and vaccinations today. Pleased to report both have put all their weight back on. Shadow is 7.95kg and Zimba 7.92kg 😀 Zimba scared us as when vet listened to his heart it was racing. Told him nurse had just brought him back after taking him away from me into another room to clip his claws and do a hygiene trim and I could hear him crying the whole time and explained he hates not being able to get to me just howls.. Vet said probably separation anxiety & stress then. Sure enough after 5 minutes cuddling with me and vet stroking him he checked again and his heart rate was back to normal. Smile Shadow will possibly need a tooth removed in the near future but for now will keep an eye on it. Apart from that both checked out healthy. 👍

Glad to read the exams went well. It is always a relief.

It is not a big surprise that a hygiene trim alone with a stranger would send his heart racing.

Best,

So happy to hear that the boys are back to their good weights. Next time ask if you can go into the treatment room or if the boys can have their nails clipped in the exam room with you.
Paddy taught our vet that taking him away from me was not a great course of action. He skunked him with his anal glands. Now I hold and cuddle while they do whatever needs to be done.
