|Where are we going?|
The vet checked out Bertie's heart and tummy and bladder and teeth. She noticed a slight overgrowth on the left molars, said she couldn't see any evidence of abrasion. A body x-ray showed gas and a very full bladder. Bertie wriggled a bit from all of poking and prodding but was uncharacteristically docile.
The vet gave Pinniped an overall check and made lots of comments about Pinni's love handles (and squeezed them a lot!). It's hard not to give Pinni lots of squeezes. What a moose. Pinni groused about the attention her fat was getting, but was otherwise abnormally quiet. This was all too much to process. The vet said she was a porky pig but in great health.
The girls were so glad to get out of that office! Unfortunately, Bertie will be making a trip back next week, to have her molars examined carefully and the left molars filed a bit. I'm not happy, but not surprised. I have not had a pig with teeth problems before and I am very nervous about having her sedated. Poor Bertie will be by herself for the day -- I don't know if she's ever been left by herself for that long.
