Life with Riley
  The Diary of a Spanish Water Dog

Friday 6 January 2012


Riley's first visit of the year to the vet, thankfully only for her annual booster vaccinations.  As a precaution she also had a blood test so we have a reference point in case there is any reaction to the vaccination, and it causes the Haemolytic Anaemia to start again. 


The news is good with a red blood count of 40.2%; now we just have to keep a careful eye on her over the next few weeks, regularly checking gum colour and looking for any signs of lethargy.   Mike

Riley continues to be in good health, and with anti-tick measures taken, we're off to North Devon and Exmoor for a few days.  When we get back it will only be a few days until Crufts, Riley's next blood test and her spring clipping. Hectic times for a SWD!   Mike
