I was surprised that he didn't sing the song of his people while riding in the car. He was as quiet as a mouse while he rode in his carrier in the backseat and didn't make a peep. When we went into the room for our appointment, I talked to the vet tech about what he needed to have done and he took him to the back to have his blood drawn for a FIV/FELV test. I could hear his poor little kitten howls all the way in the exam room. That test came back negative. Yay!
Roadside also had some vaccines and an oral dewormer. He's a healthy kitten, except for that he does have ear mites. He got some medicine for that and those itchy buggers should be on their way out.
While at the vet's office, he did a bit of exploring in the exam room. The hole to the trash can seemed especially interesting to him, and he tried to go in there when the vet tech and veterinarian came to give him his shots.
Although a bit scared, he was a very well behaved kitten at the vet I think. Next up for Roadside is getting neutered and vaccine boosters.
Shiner also tagged along during this vet visit. She has a nasty ear infection and has been licking her paws frequently. She's got some medicine to help with that and hopefully it will give her some relief.
I took a few video clips of the vet trip for our Instagram story yesterday. You can check out all the action in the video below.
