Vet Day

Blake took Marley to the vet today because we knew he had worms.  We found out that he has a tape worm.  The vet said it is probably about 6ft. long.  They treated him for that so it will just be a little while before he bounces back.  I can’t wait to see him feeling better because he just mopes about.  He should act like a completely different dog when he gets feeling better.  The improvements we will see will be:
weight gain
more energy
his dry skin will go away
his horribly bad breath will get better
his coat will get shinier
 

We went ahead and got all of his puppy shots done because we were not sure what he has had and has not had.  The vet also said that he wants to see him get his weight up and get a little stronger before we have him neutered.  He said he should be ready in about a month.  We are so relieved that there were no problems worse than this.  I think the only part Marley enjoyed about all of it was taking a ride in Blake’s Jeep.  He loves looking out the windows at home and he seemed to love doing that even more.

  1. aww that doesn’t sound like fun. Sorry 😦

  2. Erin, did you get a puppy while I was in “Aira Zona”. What kind of dog is he? Another Weimie? What does Chloe think of him? A six foot tape worm. How the heck do you get a six foot tape worm. I swear Sissy has one because she can really pack it in. 🙂

  3. hey woman, glad things went well. Diesel has some dry skin on his nose…. How long will it take him to get used to his crate. HE HATES IT!

  4. Kathryn-Welcome home! We are glad you made your travels safely! You will have to read my older posts since Sunday to find out about Marley.

    Diana-On the crate issue it took Chloe a few moths I think. To help matters we would make her go in and sit then we would give her a treat. Then before she would come out we would make her sit and wait. She got where she knew exactly what we wanted and did it with out asking. Also Chloe gets dry skin on her nose everytime she chews a bone. Not sure why but it never seems to bother her.

  5. Poor Marley!!! =( My dog Homer had the same thing…he gained a lot of weight!!! That is…THANKS TO MY MOM…she has him now…he looks like a COW!!!
