I just have this tendency to obsess. Omg Mia stepped weird her knees are going out and he'll be crippled her whole life and I won't get to do agility and have a fun hobby and omg.

Or my car is making a funny noise ergo I'm going to have to spend thousands and push house plans back.

Or or or....

I always find something to worry about.

Where did you end up going?

I wanted to get Romeo in two weeks for the bites to his leg, I called my regular vet and she couldn't see me until late that evening. I would have had to take off work early, and he was really really ouchy and in pain. So I bit the bullet and called the big multi-vet hospital that can always get me in right away, I pretty much had that face the entire time. I could just feel my bank account crying, they charge double for services that everyone else charges. $35 to shave and flush his leg (I already flushed it, doh). They said oh, since you do annual bloodwork anyway, do you want to do it today to save on the exam fee for next time? Full bloodwork there is $250...compared to $115 at most other vet hospitals. I'm glad I was able to get him in but it just costs way too much there.

Possibly TMI, but mine is, too! Weird body parts those uteri!

Hope all is well, even if you had to have the full shebang exam. At least it's over?

Oh I added an eta.

Small dermoid cyst they think! I hope it doesn't grow a face

Another scan in 3 months to see if it changes....

I'm happy it's not anything sinister or pcos!

I found this:

Answer
When a nurse or doctor describes your womb (uterus) as retroverted they're referring to its position within the pelvis.
The uterus is attached to the top of the vagina and, in the majority of women, tends to lie forwards (anteverted) above the bladder.
However, in a significant proportion of women (about 15 per cent) it has a tendency to tilt backwards, more in line with the vagina itself, and this is what is meant by retroverted.

And you're a new patient here!"

They were incredibly nice. The doc did a mini exam on Pay besides just looking right at his eye. Payton's eye is structurally fantastic, we did a stain, no scratches... just some minor conjunctivitis. He gave us neomycin to treat it anyway because he said "If you wake up tomorrow and he's started pawing at it through the night, now you have a bigger problem, so we'll just start treating the symptoms now." He wanted to hear back about if it got better but said we don't need to come in for a re-check.

The tech was so funny, the doc walked in and she goes "Okay before we do anything else, can you just look at how nice and skinny this dog is??" Everybody always freaks out about now non-fat my shelties are. He has gained FIVE pounds since I put him on Verus which is super awesome. He's at a really good weight right now.




I came in to work to an e-mail from my boss instructing me to not send him any e-mails over 50 words.
...
What.
There's a large case of Not Cool going around.

My doc said it's pretty common and they can be tilted back (like mine) or even forward! Pregnancy/birth does change positioning tho.
