Healthy Little Boys

Off we went to the vet this morning.  Clooney had a lumpy organ and Nigel was due for his 6 month check up.  I am happy to report that both boys are healthy!

Clooney's lumpy organ was in fact his spleen.  Dr said it was not enlarged - just that Clooney is skinnier than Madison which is why you can feel one and not the other.  He is otherwise pretty healthy so we are kind of on the watch and see mode with this one.  He does tend to have some mild digestive upset at times so Dr put him on a probiotic.  I put it in his ferretone when we got home and he lapped it right up.

Nigel was a crazy man at the vet - cruising all over the place - finding morsels of old dog treats, anointing himself with all the new smells.  He was quite a mess.  Dr says eyes, ears, teeth look good and heart sounds strong.  No need for major testing since he seems like a happy healthy baby.

Since he was such a mess I did opt for a quick bath once we got home.  Clean and healthy baby - even better!

Both boys are snoozing - sleepy from their adventures.  Thanks Dr B for looking at my guys!
