Tommy likes the people at the ER

He didn’t protest even once. They took his blood and even injected subcutaneous fluids under his skin. I had called his regular vet and they said to take him to the emergency room.

We’re going to the vet again

Lily’s appointment is on Wednesday in Virginia. She’s my 4(ish) year old guinea pig that gave birth to a bunch of pups a few years ago. She’s never been to the doctor since she moved in with me, and I found out this weekend that she’d chewed the hair off her lower side. This is […]
