Dr. Gangemi and Pug’s Vet Adventure

We took our 6-year-old fur child, Murphy to his new Beautiful and Kindhearted Veterinarian yesterday for teeth cleaning and tooth extraction. After his brief physical examination, an injection to his bum was given to relax him before sedation. While Shaun headed to the Bancomat for Euro, I laughed hysterically as Murphy began to stagger and stumble in the waiting room. My laughter must have rumbled through the walls as the Vet sought out to retrieve him for his procedure. Ready! Fast forward……..when we arrived in the waiting room his tongue seemed 10x its size as it hung over his lower lip. His head swayed back and forth and once again and his eyes were in a perpetual state of nystagmus, I couldn’t contain my laughter while hugging him. The Vet thought I was crying. I told her “I laugh to keep from crying!” Our little guy looked like a dizzy mess but was so adorable just waking up from his sedation.

Dog lovers, please give your pets a good dental cleaning as it is imperative to their health and lessens chance of a bacterial infection possibly seeping into their gums and cause organ failures. If you see your dog has obvious signs of tartar or smacking their mouths, it’s a good indicator for a dental check or cleanup!

Our little garbage eater.

We take Murphy with us everywhere as much as we can! With the weather finally cooling down he’ll be freer to venture out with us. Also now with the community clearing up from summer renters, he’ll be able to roam the roads and beach leash-free again!

Thank you to Dr. Gangemi and her wonderful Staff for such great care! Your comforts, Vet ease and bilingual language was a major bonus!

    Omg Murphy is super cute, you are such a cute family you reminds me of me and my hubby and our dog, and my husband dresses exactly like yours with shorts, and Lactose shirts.

      Tow out of 75 aint bad. Hahah LOL. That’s why I hired you! 😉

      It was a great experience, even though a bit heart breaking to see ‘il Puggy looking the way he did. Imagine if he was a child. Do you remember when your children got their shot? Part of my MA internship training was injecting toddlers with vaccinations. It was so heart breaking! Then later in urology, geriatric Men would just pull down their pants and underwear to the ground. Hahaha. 😉 Such an wide spectrum…

        My oldest did not, and still does not handle shots well at all. He freaks out more before the shot than when he actually gets it. Too funny about the older men! xo K

    • Jeni Johnson says:

      Ahhh…. thank you, I humbly accept this 4th acknowledgement and apologetically decline. I’m happy you hear you receiving it! You deserve it plus 10x the award! Let us fight for a cure!

    • Jeni Johnson says:

      Thank you. We are very partial to pugs and I’ll make sure we continue to adopt them forever. 🙂 When we move back to the states we’d like to add a Micro Pig to the mix. Have you ever had a Pug?
