Red, red eyes…

I don’t have a photo for you, but Sissy and I made a quick trip to see Wondervet this morning.  The past two nights, girlfriend’s eyes – particularly the right one – have been cherry red.  2-3 children’s chewable benadryls and she’d settle down and sleep, and in the mornings, she’s bright-eyed, but that right eye in particular was troubling.

Sis on Thursday, before the red-eye set in

We came home with a steroid ointment and some human wetting drops.   I’m typing with the patient’s head on my hip, so she’s resting comfortably.   Wondervet did a stain and saw no scratches on the eyes themselves, so we’re guessing it’s allergic in nature.  Could be bacterial, but the steroids will take care of that too.

The good news is that the other end of the same dog, which has been problematic just about her whole life, seems to FINALLY be in a very good, healthy state.  It’s been a long haul, and as Wondervet predicted, we’re so happy to be “here” that we have zero interest in trying to re-introduce other proteins at this time.  Some day… maybe…

    Poor girl – butt (pun intended) I am glad that somethings are healing nicely! Benadryl is a wonderdrug, donchathink? I love the stuff.

    Lucy had Pink Eye! Seriously – poor girls. I’m glad we don’t have to do the food routine with Lu and who needs more proteins – we both know we’d be happy eating nothing but pig. maybe Sis is just fine with rabbit! 🙂 g

    We’re still battling the red eyes here and probably will be for another month. Fudge especially seems to have teary eyes this week.
