WAFFLES: Hey Boss, Glogirly's taking me for a ride in the Jeep today! We're going four-wheeling!
KATIE: Four-wheeling, huh? I didn't realize you had to go off-road to get to the vet.
WAFFLES: Wait. What?
KATIE: Enjoy the ride, Waffles. I'll just stay here and make sure this soft pillow doesn't go anywhere.
Over the mountains and through the woods...
...to the vet clinic we go.
Katie did so well with her dental procedure in January. It was truly an investment in her health and well being. We knew she had some diseased teeth that were causing her discomfort and contributing to some of her chronic health issues. Getting rid of those bad teeth has made all the difference for her.
At almost 6 years old, Waffles is much younger than Katie, but is showing signs of gingivitis. We want to get ahead of the game to ensure he has a healthy mouth.
So today's the day! Waffles will arrive at the vet clinic Wednesday morning at 8am. He'll first undergo a general wellness exam and some bloodwork. Then he'll go to one of their surgical suites for the dental procedure. It requires general anesthetic, so he'll be there all day. They like to monitor the kitties as they're waking up and then watch them for a few hours.
Though Katie will be lounging away on her pillow at home during his procedure, she'll be riding with Glogirly later in the day to pick up Waffles. Don't tell her, but she's due for her 6-month senior kitty wellness exam.
