The next morning when Dorado woke up I fed him a nice breakfast consisting of more hot dogs. You should probably give him some different food but I want to stick with something that I knew he would eat. Unfortunately, I didn’t have it ton of dog friendly fooling around in the house.
I looked online at my nearby veterinarian and checked out some veterinarian recommendations to find one that I would bring Dorado too. I chose one that was actually within a couple blocks of me so Dorado and I chose to walk there. I was worried with the vet would think when I brought him in. I didn’t want the vet to think that I was abusing and neglecting Dorado. I absolutely love animals and not want anyone to think that.
This was actually the first time I had Dorado on a leash. Why didn’t have any dog friendly food playground other than hotdogs, I did have an old dog leash and collar. Thankfully it fit Dorado perfectly.
Dorado actually walked really well on the leash. There were plenty of distractions to since it is a relatively busy road. Even when a squirrel ran by Dorado didn’t flinch.
We eventually got to the veterinarian and walked inside and was greeted by a friendly receptionist. She told us that we have to wait a few minutes for the veterinarian to be ready.
Was a veteran area and was ready we walked inside of the room and Dorado was weighed. Dorado weighed a whopping 40 pounds. As all Australian Shepherd lovers know, this is extremely underweight. The veterinarian was very concerned. It was unfortunate that I didn’t have more information you give him. The veterinarian tried to scan Dorado for a microchip but was unable to find any.
The veterinarian asked what I wanted to do. I only had to contemplate for a little while until I knew that I want to keep Dorado. I instructed the veterinarian to do as many tests and give Dorado as many shots as he thought was necessary. In addition, I had the veterinarian give Dorado a haircut and a bath.
When it was all said and done, Dorado was given a clean bill of health and we left the veterinarian. I’m going to have to go back for a follow-up in a few weeks to get him additional shots, but I’m glad that he is healthy.
