Lexie and Ozzie Go To Auburn University School of Veterinary Medicine

Ever since we first adopted Lexie we knew we would take her to Auburn's Vet School to have her teeth cleaned and the cyst on her hip removed.  On Monday. from our campsite at Chewacla State Park, Wayne made the appointment for 11 a.m. the same day.  She and Ozzie each had an overall examination, their vaccinations were updated and we got a new supply of heartworm meds and flea prevention for both. 

Both babies got a good overall report and they weigh within a few ounces of one another -- just over 7 pounds --a surprise since Ozzie looks larger than Lexie.  Wayne says Ozzie is a basketball player (lanky) and Lexie is a football player (stocky). We learned that Ozzie has a bit of tarter buildup but won't need a cleaning for another year. Lexie's teeth are worse, with one missing and another broken. She's scheduled to return in early December for a cleaning -- putting her to sleep makes me uneasy but it is necessary for her overall good health.
