A Trip to the Animal Hospital and Where's Bok

 Bok with a bandage I put on  that lasted for 10 min.
 I'll take door number 2
 Waiting our turn  , This is a busy place , and yes  folks really do care about  their pets in Thailand
 Here's Bok  waiting his turn as cool as a cucumber
 That is until this old fellow walked by after his visit and Bok took one look and was ready to go home , sores or not   ha ha
A little pug first visit
Even a little Budda altar for the Animals
 getting fitted with Head Gear

 Here's Ciejay paying the Dr. bill
Front view of the Hospital 
Well I tried to Dr. our little dog Bok, for myself , BUTTTT   he just kept licking the medicine off and the sores would not heal , sooo it's off to the Vets , where they cleaned the sores very good , and they poked and prodded, and checked him out real good , Bok is all the while looking at me and giving me a look as to say "their killing me here." After it was all over and the "anti lick head gear "was put on , Ciejay and I agreed it would be better to leave him there for a few days sooo  they could change the bandages and clean the sores and apply more medicines.
I would like to say that every time I have had occasion to visit the Animal Hospital , that I have been impressed with how organised they are and also how polite they are and the compassion (genuine) that they show the little sick animals .  I have to add that this is a Hospital that also  treats large animals also and the day we were there they had elephants , horses , cows and a couple of goats too. 
I've posted a few pictures of the trip and will comment under each if needs be .Take care of you pets , to Ciejay and Me  they are just like our kids , Very protective of our home and they follow Ciejay everywhere she goes. 
And  Sabu has been looking everywhere and even sticks his head in the doorway  to see if Bok is inside the house  , they are really good buddies and Sabu has not eaten very good since Bok has been gone  and he looks at Ciejay every time she feeds him, and looks as to ask  "where's Bok ".
And on a side note---- the local Tesabon held  a free clinic for birth control and for rabies shots , sooo  off to the town square with Sabu for his shot , it has been an animal week, But you know  "they are well worth it ",for all the joy and companionship, they bring to our lives , and I read somewhere that folks that had pets  seem to have less stress in their lives and some have even gotten well, and  lived longer ,  Sounds a lot better than Prozac to me .

I am so glad you wrote a new blog. 14 days of "here comes the junk man" was about more than I could take. I told myself if I click on your blog one more time and see "HERE COMES THE JUNK MAN", I was gonna take a spoon and gouge my eyes out. Thanks for sparing me from having to do that. On another note. I hope your dog gets to feeling better.

Your loving son,

Richard

I enjoyed Richard's comment Malcolm. As for me, I am itching to leave a comment about "free clinic for birth control and for rabies shots". For the life of me I can't think of a comment! Get well soon Bok. K

Malcolm that is some animal clinic, Bok is in the best of hands there. I'm sure Sabu will have his play partner back soon and the pair of them will be back to lazing those hot summer days away.

I couldn't help but giggle (laugh out loud) at Richard's comment, we really do have the same sense of humour.

It's refreshing to see dogs well cared for in such a large facility, especially since so many seem to suffer :(

Give me pets over Prozac any day!
