Two days on the trot!!
I had Bengy at the vets on Thursday (yesterday)and he had to go back again today.
Yesterday the vet gave him a thorough examination, he prodded, pulled, twisted this and that, opened Bengys mouth etc etc I think he must have moved every muscle in Bengy's body and the little 'monkey' didnt even give a squeak yet when I got him home and lifted him outside the first thing he did was 'yelp! just like a squeal as though he was in pain.
But Bengy is really unwell at the moment the vet told me his thyroid results were very very low and this could be a sign that something else is 'going on' From other symptoms that Bengy has had the vet is now thinking it perhaps could be Cushons disease(Not sure of the spelling here) Good point is it can be treated bad point- it cant be cured. So I had to take Bengy back today and leave him for 2hours so the vet could do other blood tests etc and it will be at least a week before I get the results. Meantime vet has given me pain relief medication for Bengy (think I need to try some of it too
) Dont mention secure medication bottles to me --- it took me almost 20 minutes to get the dashed bottle open then when I finally got the top open I just about needed a magnigying glass to see the callibrations on the syringe. vet said it would be easier to put it on Bengys food so I had to stand guard to make sure Gizzy didnt steal any of Bengy's 'doctored ' food. Talk about living in a 'crazy house' just come and visit me!!
Today it was a lovely day so while Bengy was at the vets I decided to go and have a look at some of the shops-- (today I had to take the dog to the vets main practice which is in another nearbye village) I found a shop which was just like an Allandins cave,(not a big store just an ordinary shop with lots of space) you name anything and it was there. so I spent most of my time there wandering around and picking up a few bits and pieces. (one thing I bought was a fridge magnet that said 'You can touch the dust but dont
write in it!)then when I came out there was a fish/chip shop nearbye so I treated myself to a 'fish supper' and then went and sat in my car and had myself a 'picnic' ---Yummy!!!! (Another 3" on my waist line ? )
Now I'll have to wait for Bengy's results fingers crossed they'll come back soon.
