You might recall that we visited Lola’s vet a while back to get to the bottom of her overpowering stink mouth. Now, pug dentals aren’t something I take lightly, so we wanted to rule out all other possibilities before she went in for a cleaning.
Lola Pug has what I refer to as a “stinkle” (stinky wrinkle), so Deji and I thought it best to send HRH to see the dermatologist about resolving her clam face issues (not something I talk about much, because HRH is rather sensitive about it) *before* we talked dental.
I mean – if the hot clam boat smell is really her face and not her mouth, the dental would be an unnecessary risk, right?
So off to the specialist we went!
Have you ever seen a little pug so happy to be at the vet’s?
I really am the luckiest pug mama ever. And it’s not as if this is our first time at the vet specialist rodeo. I mean…look at the size of that file…
Lola P has WAY more specialists on her payroll than most people do. Certainly more than I do, at least.
Our dermatologist proved to be a wonderful guy, and after a little bit of poking and prodding of the pug’s face and talking about “growing things in a lab” (another pug, please!), we found ourselves waiting to be discharged.
The waiting room is always an exciting place to be – it inspires me and makes me sad, at the same time.
This beautiful guy is a 14-year old Pibble who was in for a chemo session. A sweeter dog you will never meet, and he was raring to get back into the treatment area so he could see all of his human friends at the clinic.
Of course, Lola P, being the social butterfly that she is, can’t go anywhere without seeing someone she knows, and who happened to be coming out of surgery that day, but her little friend, Sadie.
Sadie has just had surgery on her larynx and nose, and her recovery is going to be on the longer side, so please go and wish her well on her Instagram page here!
We were handed a bag of various stinkle medications, and we were on our way back home, where Lola P could *finally* eat her lunch and catch up on her sleep after a very busy afternoon.
Updates to come on the little clamboat and her stinkle. We get to find out what the “lab” has been “growing” next week, so if it’s anything even remotely exciting, I’ll keep you posted.
Until next week, stay cool, stay hydrated, and stay unstinky!
