poor alice

Alice had to have some lumps removed (5 to be exact). Poor dog. She's doing well. Though, she's not allowed to go on walks or anything for two weeks.

Prior to her surgery, the vet did some routine bloodwork. Everything was good except her triglycerides. They were 1,500. They're supposed to be in the 70-100 range. So, I guess you could say they are a little elevated. Sigh. The first thing we need to do is put her on low fat dog food. Of course the prescription stuff from the vet has the lowest fat in it, so I'm going to buy a bag of that to start. I'm hoping I can find something at Petco that is comparable. Beyond that, I'm not sure what can be done. I'm assuming there's probably a pill for this, but it's not like she needs to be on any more pills.

While she was out, the vet also cleaned her teeth. I noticed that she cut her toenails too (that one was a freebie). I think this particular visit may have wrapped up the financing for the Law wing of Richland Veterinary Hospital.
