vet'narin report

Well! Things started off bad and got worse from there! Massah came home early and took me to the vet'narin. Of course, the first thing they do when we walk in the door is put me on a scale. Fine. That's to be expected. However, WHY DID THEY HAVE TO TELL MASSAH THAT I GAINED A POUND?! I obviously know I gained a pound since moving in with Motch - she feeds me more than my allotted 1 cup a day, thank goodness! - and I don't care if they write it down in their little charts, but why OH WHY do they have to tell HER?! That's just going to make her watch my feeding times like a hawk. Totally unnecessary. After THAT fiasco, they stuck nasty things in my private areas, and then told me "it's normal". OF COURSE it's normal - I could have told them that without all that drama! Then they restrained me and stuck torture devices in the back of my neck to "hydrate me" or some such bullocks. I think it was a form of Chinese Water Torture. I'm Chinese, they shot water under my skin, and it sure as heck was torture - isn't there some law that makes Chinese Water Torture a felony?! And then they gave me another shot on top of that. And medicine to take (but I get that in cheese, so I'm just complaining on the principle of it - I don't mind the cheesey meds). Needless to say I am now at home POUTING. I will be fine, but not until Massah realizes how UNHAPPY I am about it all.

Hi Tad...
I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well. I'm sure if Ruby were around she'd be very upset...mind you she probably is upset since I sent her off to the Wag anyway! You feel better...

Lots of Kisses...Michele

WHAT DID I TELL YA? Those VETS are evil! I don't think a piece of cheese is worth it. Babs told me that you had to go to feel better, so....I guess I forgive them.

If I were there, I would cuddle with you since I have FUR and we could keep each other warm. AND I think you need a few kisses too!

Oh Tad... I hate that you were hooked up to the water torture device. That is not a good way to spend your Friday. Get some rest handsome and get to feeling better.

Stanley said...


Congratulations on the cheese. Bummer about the torture.

Like Grammie said, though, you wear that extra pound VERY WELL buddy! Makes you look BUFF!

Goober love,

Joe Stains said...

we are VERY glad to hear that you are going to be fine!! I think you could totally stand to gain just one pound.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Tad.
I hope all that torture makes you feel good soon!
A pound?? Where is it? I see you still skinny!!!
Rest a lot!
Have a good night

Amber-Mae said...

Oh Tadpole! It's okay if you gained one pound. No big deal! You still have the ideal weight...And so sorry to hear that you got tortured. But luckily they did not step on your tummy to make you vomit all the water out again. That's a horrible torture! Bite the doctor! Hope you get better soon...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Bella said...

Hi Tad,
I've been reading through & catching up on all your blog.
I hope you are starting to feel better after the nasty flea bitE !!

Suki Sumo said...

Woohoo! Congratulations on the weight gain! That is one solid pound of MUSCLE, right?

Sorry about the torture though - stinky to the max.

Sophie Brador said...

Okay Tad, Here's the trick. YOu need to be on the inside scoop for vet appointments. Check the calendar, sneak Massah's day timer, whatever it takes. Maybe you can even pay off the vet asst with some extra kisses for a little info. Then, liquids only before the appointment. It will be tough, but one morning of fasting versus and a life long diet? I'm just saying.

Peanut said...

oh man Tad chinese water torture is not good. We hope you are feeling better. I agree with Grammie that a lb looks good on you.

Casper and pals said...

Hi Tad, Hope you are starting to feel better now. We agree the extra pound looks good on you!

wally said...


What's up with the vet? I mean, I don't put things in HIS bum and tell him to lose weight. Sigh. Did your massah laugh at you when you had buffalo hump from the water injection?

Get better soon, pal!


Frasypoo said...

They are evil!!
We hope you are feeling better though the drastic cut in the food allotment is enough to make someone sick!

coco said...

oh tad, what a bummer that you had to go to the bet'narian and have stuff stuck and poked in places they dont' belong. especially after having such a good time at motch's and having your massacreversary and everything was going so well. i hope that stupid flea that bit you got eaten by a spider.

maybe the cheesy meds will make everything all ok again. hope so!

loves, coco

Toby said...

Hi Tad,

Sorry to hear you aren't feeling well...and on top of that, you got tortured. I get random torture sessions at the evil vet too. But apparently they subject us to such evilness to make us feel better. At least thats what mom tells me. I hope you feel better real soon, k? I think you deserve extra cheese for being so brave!


Luckie Girl said...

Hey Tad,
I think you could do with more weight. You wanna bulk up and get some muscles right? Keep taking those cheesy medicine. We want you to get WELL soon.

Tasha & Eva said...

Hi Tad. Sorry to hear about the torture you had to go through. Hopefully it will make you feel better! Belly Rubs, Tasha & Eva.

Two Wild and Crazy Guyz said...

Tadpole we sure hope you get to feeling better now. Especially after all that you had to go through! Chinese Water Torture???Gah! Take care and enjoy the cheesy meds. Maybe when the guards not watchin' someone will slip you extra!

Ferndoggle said...

Poor Taddie! They did that water torture to my big sister Penny. She looked like a camel. I hope it made you feel better. Not the best way to start the weekend, huh?

I'm sending you Diva vibes to feel better soon!


The Brat Pack said...

We're so sorry you're still feeling under the weather. :(

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Oh dear. I hope you're feeling much better now.
That trip to the vet doesn't sound pleasent

Lady Kaos said...

Poor Tad! The vert should have told massah that you are finally moving towards a healthy weight. Being too skinny isn't good for you, especially since you don't have a lot of fur! IT takes more energy to stay warm in the winter without hair and energy is created by our bodies which is powered by yummy food! If you need, I'll do some serious research on that and send it to massah for you.

Ume said...

oh man! dat juz sounds horrible! i hope Massah makes up by giving u bigger chunks of cheese with the meds. POUND? wat pound?

Max Dex said...

Vets are enemies, NOT friends.
They have no pity over us!
all they do is stick things up our behinds!

btw, I hope you are feeling better. How are you getting on?

Ricky Pepper said...

Oh no Tad I am feeling your pain. The vet stuck somethings in me too when I was there just a few days ago. I barked at the VET after that. My little sister Sophie and I puked after our stupid shots. Now I have to go back there for "neuter" on Friday, what the heck does that mean?
