Yesderday was the day Izzy got her grooming...
I picked up an Acepromazine (a tranquiler) from our Vet. Frustrated as the counter girl was a biatch to me. (hey little girl...I have been coming to this Vet since before you were born! He knows me well & knows I take good care of my pets. I don't need you to lecture me about being behind on shots, or argue with me about dosage). I would so rather had talked to the Vet, or someone that has been here for a while & knows what they are talking about... Whatever.
I give Izzy her pill (the too low dose, but okay...) and head to the Groomer.
Janna's Doggie Dos and Kitties TooJanna is my new Hero... so is her daughter Carlye.
Her tranquilizer did NOT kick in.
She was ticked off. Too say the least...
This was her during the grooming... remember, she has been sedated... kind of..
The groomers did a great job considering she was completely turning into a wild cat. We had agreed to get a clean shave, avoid her tail area (no mats & it's such a pretty tail (Emily did not want the Lion cut tail) and leave her neck fluffy too. It took three groomers to handle, calm and groom her. Also a muzzle. (oh and lets not forget that $10 tranquilizer..which btw cost .60 at petmeds.com)
This is her results...
Poor Baby... (Don't look at her tummy rolls).
She is adjusting well. A little flinchy. A little chilled. But she seems so happy to have the mats a=off. They were so close to her skin... I know they were painful.
The day was stressful for our little girl. But... Annie let her up on her bed, and Izzy took a good nap.
