What is the next step you ask? Allergy shots for the rest of Riggs' life. Apparently dogs can not build up as strong a resistance to stuff like humans can so the shots will have to be forever. So today we got to learn how to give Riggs a shot.
To give a dog a shot you pull up the loose skin located right behind his head and stick the shot into the pocket of space made from pulling the skin up. We will have to give him a shot once every 3 days which will spread out to once every 10 days and eventually to once every 20 days. Total bill today: $824.78.
