The Marigny Vet makes a house call

First Sula ate her leash. Then two days ago Brando bit her on the ass and left puncture wounds at the base of her tail. It was time to call a vet. But most vets don't even have working phones. Fortunately the Marigny Vet is making discounted house calls while their clinic is readied for business again. They arrived at our house yesterday morning at 11 and treated each of the dogs in the backyard. Poor Sula had to have her ass shaved and get a shot of antibiotics. Brando just needed a quick physical exam before he renewed his anxiety meds. But Brando hates vets, so I gave him a xanax and a muzzle. He still ran to the back of the yard and refused to participate. Finally, he let me hold him while the vet listened to his heart and felt his liver. All was fine. And, for a moment, the world was filled with entirely normal concerns. If you can call my dogs normal...
