Big day today with lots of "firsts"
  • Took Chloe to the vet because she has a super runny nose... turns out she has a cold and they gave her antibiotics. Only had her 8 days so they said it wasn't super uncommon as she had to adjust to new settings.

    She did great at the vet, got all sorts of tests done... brought her home and gave her a bath (her first). I know they don't need them/shouldn't get them often.... but she STUNK. Brought her in the shower and she just sat there and chilled. Didn't budge. Gave her the meds tonight and she did really well with those as well.

    Vet, bath, meds... she was a trooper today.

    Very glad she seems to be doing well!!

    Just a suggestion, maybe make a life story thread and post her progress there. Easier for us to follow!!

    Thx!

    Baths aren't usually needed, but if a dog smells it probably needs it plus baths help with coat blows. :)

    Good to do baths early so the pup learns to tolerate it too..

    Yeah, I don't plan on doing them often... just every once in awhile. She's 15 weeks old so I wanted to get one in early and probably a few more early on so she is used to them. She did awesome though... just sat there for me.

    @millerb7 - I am going to go ahead and close this thread. I changed the category of your "first festival" thread to "Life Story". Feel free to share all of your pup's stories in that thread. This will prevent you having multiple threads for your Shiba.

    Thanks!
