Benji’s Blog | Annual Health Check And Vaccination


Annual health check and stingy thing!!

Hey fur-buds, Mum had an email from work saying I needed my annual check and stingy thing.  So I booked in to see Auntie Mel vet (she’s our lovely locum when Auntie Sophie goes on her holibobs). 

Auntie Mel checked me all over, put a funny round thing on me so she could hear my heart, stretched my legs out to feel my knees, felt my tummy which was very tickly, had a look at my teeth, squeezed my anal glands and gave me my stingy thing!

I’m pleased I’ve had my annual visit because….

  • I’m more comfortable and don’t need to scoot across the carpet (that’s what happens when your glands are full!)
  • I don’t need to have a teeth procedure as my teeth are looking ok for a 4 year old
  • I know why I hop at times – it’s because my knee-cap pops out, nothing to worry about
  • I’m once again protected against nasty diseases that can be spread by rats in water features or puddles (I only needed leptospirosis this year – every 3rd year it includes for distemper, hepatitis and parvovirus)
  • I got lots of treatsies!!

So it’s really important to see your Auntie or Uncle vet annually as it can prevent anything getting worse.  And don’t forget, if you’re a member of one of our Healthy Paws Clubs this annual visit is all included!

Enjoy the weekend, I hope we get to see more of the yellow ball in the sky!

Love you loooooods
