A HOUSE CALL FOR GRIZZLY: SWEET AND LOVING AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER
Just returned from a house call for Grizzly: an American Pit Bull Terrier. Grizzly is sweet & loving & has severe back pain that makes it difficult for him to lift his head.
Grizzly waits for me at the door for his twice a week injection and it helps him greatly.
After my customary greeting and chatting with Grizzly—and of course with his owner too—I examine Grizzly, and when he notices that I’m ready to give him his injection he comes and lays by me; I can see in his eyes that he knows it helps him.
It gives me such joy to see that my visits make his quality of life better and that I can help him.
I like doing house calls as I can see the patient at their home environment and in Grizzly’s case the car ride will be difficult for him as it might aggravate his pain.
The house call visit is concluded with Grizzly’s favorite treat—it’s actually a vitamin—but we don’t tell him that and he chews it with delight.
