Anipal Photo Hunt #15: THE VET

The theme for this week's Anipal Photo Hunt is "THE VET." Sadly, I've had quite a lot of experience with the vet over the last couple of months.

I've had some tummy trouble and some icky poos. So, the vet did lots of tests on me and poked me and prodded me. Then they gave me special prescription kibble to eat. At least it's yummy kibble...but that's the only thing I'm allowed to eat now. Hrmph.

I actually had to go to the vet a week ago, too, 'cause Mom thought I had an ear infection. Yep. She was right. Now we've got special antibiotic ear drops that Mom tortures me with twice a day. She waits until I'm all sleepy and comfy, then BAM! ear drops. Not fun.

Here's an example of the torture. I'm just napping, minding my own business, then Mom swoops in with the medicine...

Yes, I was trying very hard to ignore her. Thought maybe she'd go away if she thought I was really asleep!

I don't have any pictures of me at my new vet. I do have a picture of my insides from my trip to the vet last year, though. This was taken out in New Jersey, before I met my new Mom.

Ta dah!

Pretty cool, huh? OK, so maybe it's a little creepy, too, but it showed the vet that I didn't have any icky bladder stones in my tummy!

Check out these other anipals who are participating in this week's Photo Hunt...


  1. Dat was a really interesting picture of inside your tummy. So happy you are loving your special diet food.

  2. Buttons
    That is a pretty cool picture of your insides, not creepy at all!! Ha!
    Hope your tummy feels better and that the ears get better, I have had those ear infections too and have those dreadful drops!!


  3. Wow, Buttons, nice guts! I really hope your tummy and ears get all better once and for all. What a relief that you like your new special food. Sometimes animals don't like those prescription diets.

  4. Oh, Buttons, we are so sorry for what you've gone through at the vet's. We don't like to be poked too and we don't like to have our ears "played" with. Hope your ears are better now.
