|Bentley at 6 weeks - a little warm, brown, fuzzy puppy!|
I really like our new vet clinic, Loop 410 Veterinary Hospital. The vets and staff are so nice, and offer top notch dog care plus great client service. They texted me a reminder about the appointment which was very convenient. Plus, they are very efficient and that means a lot to me.
The first item was the weigh in. We had to laugh because Bentley was almost too long for the little dog scale. But when he tipped the scale at 15.8 pounds I was so surprised! Almost, but not quite, a standard dachshund. He is not overweight and the vet asked me if I thought he was too skinny. Not at all, he is perfect.

Of course, he was good during the exam. Although he didn't want his mouth examined. The vet said it was probably because he had just had the Bordetella drops in his nose. He was pronounced perfectly healthy!

I also discussed the leg lifting problem and that I was thinking about getting Bentley neutered. He said that at this point it probably would not stop the leg lifting and it would just make him fat. No, I do not want him fat, absolutely not. So I think I will just have to live with the intact male dog! Interestingly, the vet said that they rarely see an intact male dog.
