Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: Excellent Vet Care Helps the Health Stay Around

thankful thursday blog hop brian 08232018Welcome to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, we are  happy you see you here today and every day for that matter.  We always do look forward to Thankful Thursday and really enjoy reading about all of the things you are thankful for too. We love it when we see new blogger pals hopping in to join us!

Yesterday was Take Your Cat to the Vet Day and although we missed it, Sister Zoe will help make up for that today.  As I mentioned on Monday, Sister Zoe is headed to her Internal Medicine Vet today.  Several of you asked, and yes, it’s for a general follow up visit with Dr. V. and yes, Sister Zoe knows and doesn’t mind one bit.  Sister Zoe really likes Dr. V. and the whole staff on Team V.   Sister Zoe is doing pretty good we think, although she still wants to pull on and eat her fur sometimes.  I do wish we could come up with something to help her stop that, but so far we’ve tried dozens of things without much luck.  Lion cut, maybe?

We are really fortunate.  Our regular Vet, Dr. Anderson, takes such good care of all of us, she is very special as is the staff there.  When it comes to Internal Medicine issues, Dr. V. is our must see Vet.   We really are thankful to have access to the best Vet care in our area, even though sometimes we don’t like the car rides.  Well, most of us don’t like the car rides, Sister Zoe doesn’t mind that one bit either.

So what are you thankful for today?  Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.  Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

It’s wonderful that Sister Zoe isn’t bothered by going to the vet. My vet is nice to me, but I still don’t enjoy it. I guess I should be thankful that I have a vet appointment for next month that might include getting my teeth cleaned.

We’re purring that everything checks out well with Zoe. Yes, maybe a lion cut would help lessen the fur she ingests? Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, pals!

Zoe sounds like she’s a very good girl at the vet – maybe even better than me! I don’t really like being there because I hate getting my temperature taken.

Hopefully you’ll come up with a solution for Sister Zoe and her fur issue. I just had a regular follow-up appointment and all in all I’m in pretty decent shape for an older girl. I wasn’t as calm and patient as I usually am, but I did okay. The kidney situation hasn’t worsened, my teeth are doing okay, and overall I’m good. I hope you have a great weekend.

Gosh Sister Zoe, I know a lot of kitties pull out their hair for different reasons and I hope that your vet can help you figure out what can stop that for you. It’s very impawtant to have a super vet to keep us “tuned up” isn’t it!! I’m thankful for lotsa stuff myself but most of all thankful for your HOP!

I hope Zoe’s exam goes well. I have heard that zyrtec will help with skin issues, but I haven’t asked for it for Prancie because of her thyroid issues and her age. Thanks for hosting.

Brian, dear furiend, thank you so very much for hosting this blog hop…. As per Sister Zoe, obviously her vet doesn’t use nasty thermometers…. I liked mine before they attempted to violate me with that horrid torture device, too.

I’m sure we’ll get a full report later on Sister Zoe’s visit. I hope everything is fine. About eating her fur? I don’t know, but you’ll figure out what needs doing when it’s time.

I’m thankful that I found you and all your wonderful kitties.

Have a purrfect day. My best to your peeps. ♥

Zoe, here’s hoping for good news from the vet! Maybe you need a baby onesie, to keep from pulling at your furs, sweet girl!

Having a wonderful, compassionate vet is such a comforting thing. We are so glad that Zoe isn’t bothered by vet visits (can she give Eddy some lessons on this, please?). Sending lots of purrs and prayers to Zoe, and to all of you!

It is always wonderful when you KNOW you are getting really good vet care. We love our vet clinic too, but recently one of our two favorite vets moved to Georgia. We still have one we love – the others are good, but we have established a great relationship with this one and the one who left. We are so hoping we will find the new vet replacement to be great too. Nice to have two options when one has the day off.

I would love to see the lion in you, sister Zoe AND that it helps to solve your problem too. We purray for that! I hope I don’t have to see my vet ever again…*sharpens her nails* 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy TT to all of you 🙂 <3

Does sister Zoe eat her fur because of an allergy, or is it behavioral? If it’s behavioral, have you tried Composure? It’s a nice calming treat, and has been so beneficial to many of the folks I’ve recommended it to.

I wish I had a cat friendly vet’s office and personnel who liked cats. I’ve been through all of them. Stuck.

She doesn’t mind the vet or car rides, wow, you must be doing something to make it so special, but then again she’s a special little girl. I am without a doubt more thankful than I can say that my mother and I escaped the insane flooding we’ve had in town.

Molly and my Mom @ The Fast and The Furriest

It’s wonderful to see that sister Zoe isn’t adverse to taking a car ride or going to the vetsters. Angel Tabby had rather extreme reactions to both…. I myself have gotten used to my trips to the vets but have to say I’m pretty exhausted and need a serious nap when I get back home. We’re thankful for the much cooler temps that moved into our area last night. It’s gotten both myself and the Mom thinking about fall and our resuming our hikes through the woods and fields here at our house. Wishing you all cooler temps and a… Read more »

I’m sure the vet appreciates the easy visits.
I’m glad our cats are okay with it also, especially because they have to go so often.

We are thankful you mentioned your vet the day after because we did too! However we notice that ear is a little askew…not looking forward to the vet visit, perchance, Sister Zoe?

I’m thankful that you didn’t need to go to the stabby place and Zoe doesn’t mind going there. I certainly do. It stresses me out so much I get asthma attacks and TW hates to have to take me.
