Not too long of a story, but I'll still spare you short, I'm actually in the process of switching vets, but I just needed to get the rabies shot out of the way and wanted to do so before my appt with the new vet at the end of the month. And new vet was in the loop on what I was doing when I sent her my records.
I didn't bring up the topic, but I honestly answered when ask. Yes, I *guess* you could say I brought this alllll on myself. Sigh.
There was lots of nodding and smiling and "oh, really?" from me. Both Rock and I had the same GSD head tilt while looking at him.
Funny how they go from "Lookin' Good!" to being deprived of "minerals and nutrients" within 10 mins. I tried to explain what his diet and weights of rmb/mm/om, but the concept of feeding in pounds and not cups was lost, and all he wanted to know was how many cups of ground beef I was feeding. It was just a lost cause. Cue more head nodding/GSD tilts/and "oh Really?"
OH - and start of the visit: "Look at those teeth! You must use Crest Strips!!"
End of visit: "*sucks in through teeth* Yeah, his gums look a little white..." FYI, they're the color of freakin' salmon!
Well, never again, so not too worried, even though I thought for a second animal control was about to be called.
Thought ya'll enjoy my afternoon!
Now, please excuse me. I need to go home and feed my pup another cup of ground beef.
