Vaccine #5 is done but old problems return

"This is because of that time I jumped into that courier truck, isn't it?"
Once again the courier had managed to foul things up with this shipment; despite the fact that the last two had come through flawlessly.  They claimed that Canada Customs has altered the rules for importing as of January 1, 2011 that significantly changed the process.  The funny thing is though, vaccine number four (and the one before that) had no problems coming through the courier's customs brokerage, not to mention that it sailed right through customs and that was when?  Oh...JANUARY 6th!  As our post entitled "Four down and two to go" can attest to!  Obviously, everyone involved in Rilley's care have always made sure that everything is being done correctly, and we've always had all the paperwork in order.

As for the actual injections today, everything went smoothly.  No complaints from Rilley, not even a yelp, even though he did need to lose some more fur to the sheers!  Dr. Ewing did her best to remove just the right amount on the back of his neck.  As usual, we must now wait and see what the next few days will bring in the form of reactions.  Hopefully they will be as tame as the previous rounds.  Also, as we have done for the previous rounds, I will be taking photos of the injection site at 24 and 48 hours post injection and sending them off to Dr. Ohlfest for him to review.
Right when he had regrown the fur on the back of his neck...
A patch is shaved to make room for the latest injections.
