Oscar had to go to the vet today for his first annual check-up. He had to get a few vaccines (bordetella, leptospira and rabies) and was examined by the vet. I'm proud to report that everything came back normal! The vet said he is at a healthy weight, though at 20.4 lbs., he's pretty big for a miniature schnauzer. I really think there must be a little bit of some other breed in him too. Even though we've never cleaned or plucked his ears, the vet said that they look good, and recommended that we not do anything to his ears unless we notice a problem, like if he starts scratching at it or we notice an odor. He also has very good teeth, especially for a schnauzer. I guess all of that chewing is good for something! The rest of him checked out okay too. The vet did talk to me about his food, and told me something that really shocked me, so I'll blog about that separately in more detail later this weekend. The vet said that Oscar might be quiet tonight and for the next day or two because of his vaccines, but he hasn't showed any signs of slowing down yet - typical Oscar. It's so good to know that our little guy is doing well!
