Misty, the cairn terrier, went to the vet recently for her vaccinations and check up. Did I mention that the vet said she was “rather sturdy” – (For the sake of clarity it is Misty that is sturdy, not the vet) – anyway, at the weigh in it transpired that the little dog was 8.1kg – noticeably more than her ideal breed weight of 7.5kg. Well, Misty has taken it to heart and has already lost 0.2kg.
The cat didn’t want to be left out so he got weighed too – he is only 5.1kg. His weight and age had to be entered onto the online petmeds people. They want to be sure they are dispensing the correct pills and potions. Amazing really.
