Dear Momma,

Why must I go to the vet AGAIN this week? I was just there 2 weeks ago...and 2 weeks before that! And now you're saying that I have to go back maybe twice next month and get my yearly shots AND my Addison's shot? You say I am getting my ornery streak back now that I am feeling better. Momma, I am not an ornery girl...I'm just sick of the vet!! And the poking!!

But thank you for taking good care of me. I do feel better than I have in almost 6 months (that's a lot of my life, you know!). I know you worry, but you seem to have calmed down. You gotta do what I do when things are kinda yucky: take a nap. A loooong, snoring nap with your head hanging off the side of the sofa! Just don't snore as loud as Winston...he makes it hard to hear the TV sometimes.

I still think the vet is yucky, no matter how many hot dog treats and belly rubs they give me!



  1. oh molly! it's for the best. tell yer mama to get you some better treats than hot dogs though... like pizza!!!

  2. Aww, i'm sorry Ms. McFrecks, that stinks! no fun to be poked & prodded all da time.

  3. Molly, I sorry you are getting tired of de vet :-( My steroids have been giving me a temper recently. I even bit my sister (Hannah's) year last weekend. I am starting to wonder if the shot is the better option....

  4. Roscoe, what kind of treatment are you on? I am on a daily 5 mg of Prednisone (wrapped in cheese!!) and a monthly shot of Percorten-V. It's working well for me :)

  5. I take 2.5 mg of Predisone every other day. The vet prescribed me 5mg but it makes me extremely we are going to see if the 2.5mg chills me out a tad. Then instead of the shot I take 4 pills (2 in the am and 2 in the pm). I do not remember the name off the top of my head. I works well for me. It is the steroid that is hard to determine the correct dosage. I cannot be peeing all over my bed know?!

  6. Roscoe, iIs your other pill Florinef? I get the Percorten shot instead of the pill.
