Vienna’s first vet visit

Vienna laying on the exam table very contently as we wait for the vet.

We took Vienna to her first vet appointment this afternoon. She was due for her second round of shots and a general check up. The first thing they did was get her weight, but that took a minute or two because she kept moving. Once she settled down, we found out that she weights 18 pounds.

She was so skinny when we picked her up from GDB, and she wasn’t eating well. But we never weighed her prior to today, but I have a feeling she has put on a few pounds. At least I hope that is the case. I am really hoping before too long we are not able to see her hip bones anymore.

Next was the dreaded temperature. Vienna was soooo good. She did not even make a sound or a wiggle while the vet tech was taking her temperature. Everyone was very impressed!

Vienna meets her vet for the first time.  She is on the vet table on her back legs with her front paws on the vets chest.  Vienna is giving the vet a kiss hello.

The vet came in after that, and Vienna and the vet met for the first time. Vienna makes sure she feels loved by giving her a kiss right smack on her lips! The vet pretty much instantly fell in love with her!

She gave Vienna an exam, and listened to her heart. She told Vienna it was a good thing she had such a healthy sounding heart because she has a really important job to do when she gets older.

Tyler held Vienna as the vet gave her the vaccines, and again Vienna didn’t make a wiggle or a whine. Good girl, Vienna.

After Vienna was done with her appointment, Tyler gave her a great big hug and kiss for a job well done! I hope all of her visit go as smoothly as this one did :)


  1. Vienna is so cute! And I love her name.
    I'm guessing she's about 12 weeks then? When Clyde went to the vet for his 12 week shots, he weighed 25lbs. Quite a difference! Although, Clyde seems abnormally big for his age, haha.

  2. I was wondering how she compared to other pups at 12 weeks. But 25 pounds! That's a big pup. My friend is raising for CCI, amd when her pup was 12 weeks she weighed 19 pounds, so I figure V is pretty average for a female. She was a tiny ;little thing when we got her, but now that she is eating she is catching up :)

  3. I just got home from getting Snickers 12 weeks shots. He weighed 21 pounds. He's gained almost 8 pounds since I picked him up. Good girl Vienna, sounds like she was perfect. :)

  4. I relish, lead to I discovered just what I used to be taking a look
