Hello, HIVE Friends!
Friday our Siberian husky, Nymeria, had an appointment with the veterinarian for her "ANNUAL ADULT WELLNESS VISIT."
It was originally scheduled for last Saturday but the veterinarian had an emergency and changed the date/time.
Come along and see the fun time we had!
McCauley Animal Clinic has two locations in St. Charles County. The one in the photo above is our regular vet clinic and where we visited today.
quick little back story about Nymeria and the impact of the pandemic on her womanhood...
We added Nymeria to our family at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020. When she was a puppy and had regular veterinarian checkups and vaccines, we forgot to schedule out in advance for her to be spayed. Female Siberian huskies have their first heat cycle between 6 to12 months old. In October 2020, Nymeria was 7 months old and with Thanksgiving less than a month away. I called the local McCauley Animal Clinic and ask for an appointment thinking it would be in a week or two. Imagine my shock when they told me due to the pandemic and being shorthanded (staff and vets out with Covid) the first available opening was the last week of December! HECK NO! No way I was taking a chance playing Russian roulette and gambling the chance of our dog having her period for the holidays (heat cycles last 3-4 weeks). Nope. Not with my bad luck. Then I remembered the veterinarians had another clinic location in a small country town called New Melle, about 15 miles away on two-lane stretch of highway filled with twists and turns. I hastily called to see if they had any availability for her surgery and was fortunate there was an opening later that week. Ultimately, that was where Nymeria had surgery to be spayed during the COVID pandemic in 2020. More about that experience another time...
Moral of the story?
Plan your dog's surgeries well in advance!
