So stupid but I'm so tired I can't talk through which option would be better:

I have to take my puppy to the vet this afternoon. She also needs a bath and her bedding etc needs to be washed. So, bath & laundry before or after the vet? It's our first time actually going to the vet to see the vet, plus it's not our regular vet.

  • Do the bath & bedding tomorrow since today may be a little upsetting for her. She'll want to come home & sleep in her own smelly bed. Give her the day to get over her Dr. visit. :)

  • Makes sense. I wasn't thinking too that if she vomits during the car ride (it's 20 miles each way) I'd hate for it to be on clean stuff! She has a UTI (but since it's her first and she's young and she was otherwise sick last week, the vet wants to see her first) so her bed stinks worse than she does. I just don't want him to think I don't take care of her, kwim?

  • I wouldn't take her bed with her- I'd put her on towels

  • It's not an actual bed - just the fleecy liner thing from her carrier. We couldn't find small beds so just have a couple of those and call them her beds ;o)

  • Appointment went well - no pukes on the drive, she hates the vet, and she's definitely happy in her stinky bed ;o)
