Visit to the Army Vet at Fort Story, VA

We had our first visit to the Army vet at Fort Story the other day. Dolly and Mr. Jenks were nervous on the 30 min. ride there.

We signed in fairly quickly and they took us right back. We had a very nice Major (woman) to help us. The Microchipping needle is very large and we had a little blood on both animals. Both animals did super and didn't cry out! I still felt very bad for them.

They also both got their 1st rabies shot (two are required before the FAVN blood test). Very important that they have the rabies shot after they are microchipped. We did it on the same day and I'm still a little nervous about that.

We go back in January for their next rabies vaccine. The guidelines say it has to be at least 30 days after they get the first one.

MS has his medical stuff done for overseas screening. He had to get vaccines, poor guy! He said his arm hurt after that. He had the one for yellow fever, a PPD test, and several he already had in his record. His next step is to talk to a senior chief about finances. That should go smoothly.

I will be in Japan in 10 1/2 months! WOW!
