    And I'm really proud of my two girls :thumbup:

    Sky now weighs 24kg (3st and 10.91lbs) and is looking perfect (according to the vet).

    Candy weights 14kg (2 st and 2.86 lb) which is AMAZING. She did weigh over 3st :D

    Candy is on some steroid cream though because her anal glands were full to the brim (the vet gave them a squeeze and it stank) and she was chewing her foot because of her discomfort.

    All in all a very good visit (apart from Candy barking the entire time :rolleyes:) and it only cost us £45

    :thumbup:

    Glad they're doing so well and they were so well behaved for you.

    Shen barks like a bad thing in the waiting room then hides behind me in the examination room!

    Bailey barks a bit whilst at the vets, it's quite annoying lol.
    He's known as Bouncy Bailey whilst there, as he always wants to go up to people or other dogs lol.

    I was SO embarrassed with Candy. She barked continuously in the waiting room and when she was being examined. Sky just wanted to lick everything in sight, including the floor :rolleyes:

    I even asked the vet if it was unusual for a dog to never bark LOL

    My dogs hate the vet. Before we flew out here they had to have so many check ups, shots, blood tests that the mere sight of the vets has them shaking I'm not kidding and this is at another vet surgery. But they do stay pretty calm for the vet and he was impressed at how well behaved they were.

    Poor darlings :(

    Apparently Candy used to be fine with the vet but one year she was getting her booster shots done. He injected her in the wrong way or something and she screamed :(

    Congrats to Candy on her weight loss :) I've got Harvey on a diet at the moment :eek:

    Harvey just wanders around to the back of the counter at the vets to lie with the westie there :D

    Aw that's so sweet :D

    With Candy she was fed a lot of human food along with her meals. I weaned her off the human food and switched her over to country choice. She also has a lot more exercise than she did before and she's looking great!
