Whew! Glad That’s Over

OK. The sample came back OKEYDOKEY today. No more parasites. The Trifexis seems to be working. That and the Panacur medicine I’ve been on.

Oh me. It was unfortunate that my heartworm/flea/parasite medication didn’t work back in July, but we switched from Sentinel to Trifexis and that seemed to work. Let’s hope so.

I hate this stuff. They hate putting me on meds, but a guy’s gotta do what a guy’s gotta do, right? I eat stuff and walk through stuff and lick my feet and gnaw on nasty things and, where I live, parasites live and spread just about everywhere all the time.

Have you visited your dogtor and had your tests lately? Do it now, K? I’d hate to lose you.

What You Learned Today:

  • Worms are no fun.
  • If left untreated, they can kill us.
  • If you haven’t visited your dogtor lately, please do.
  • Because I care. Truly. I do.
  • Oh…and that applies to your PEEPS, TOO.
  • Bark at them to go to their dogtor, too.

    A great message mate, everyone should go and have a check up! (I just had one, so I’m okay.)

  2. Kyla says:

    Well done. We can’t lose our Stu!

    Lee took me for my test two months ago. No ugly parasites inside of me. Lee just wishes she could stay away from the doctor.
    Thanks for being a friend

    yep, we just had our annual check up. Then last week, I Daisy, had an erky stomach and had the runs for several days. Of course, just when SHE was going to take me to the dogters, I got better.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  5. Glad to hear you’re all clear!

  6. Piper MacT says:

    I was at my Dogtor yesterday, I’ve been doing the itchy and scratchy show the last while. He gave me some pills two weeks ago as well as a shot in the bum (not impressed with that last…), but while it helped a bit, I’m still scratching. So he ordered up some medicated shampoo, and now not only did I get a bath today, I can look forward to one on Sunday, and next Wednesday…Hooray…NOT!

    Ah well, I suppose they mean well.

    Arroos to you,
    Piper MacT

    • Oh Piper MacT. I feel your pain. They do mean well. Really. They do. Just give them “that look” and maybe you’ll get a trip to the local watering hole and grab a snatch of food after each and every bath. Ya think? Some cheese and stuff. Yeah. That’d be good.

  7. Glad that everything came out ok in the end…no pun intended, Stuart!! 🙂

  8. Bosun Dawg says:
