More meds for Sissy

Today, Sissy and I met Supervet.  You see, Wondervet is off right now, and Sissy needed to be seen about her eyes again. 

December 2010 010

That was the best her eye looked all long weekend, and that was with eye ointment, drops and lots and lots of benadryl. 

Turns out she has Uveitis.  Luckily, Supervet got a wild hair and decided to test each eye’s pressure too.  Sis also has glaucoma… in both eyes.  Her right eye is right on the line of the pressure for diagnosis, but the left eye is a cause for very real concern.  She’s already had her first round of drops for both issues, and a pain pill. 

At this point, Supervet is very optimistic that we caught it fast enough that vision will be restored to that left eye, and more importantly (in this human’s opinion), we can almost assure that the right eye won’t get any worse. 

Why yes, she is very young, but at 3, she’s at the window for it to appear, so here we are.  Thank goodness for awesome vets!!

    Poor Sis! Samba and Morgan both have some eye problems that we just have to watch for now. On Christmas Eve my bad boy managed to get what in a human would be a black eye. I don’t know if it was a fight or he ran into something, but the area all around his eye is bruised, hairless and swollen. Nice!! So for Christmas he got hot packs and ointment in his eye several times a day. It’s looking a little better today.

    Here’s looking at you, Kid! And hoping you can look right back! Scary stuff, but glad it was caught sooner rather than later.

    Poor Sis and Mommy : ( I am glad you guys caught it early of course but I so wish you did not have to go through that again… Best wishes to you all for a smooth(er) New Year!

    Sounds like things should be able to be controlled, and that is so much better than the alternative!

    Give her a hug from me.

    Oh dear. I had a basset hound who got glaucoma and she lost her vision within 48 hours and was in so much pain (stupid vet didn’t even check for it and missed the diagnosis). I hope that Sissy got it caught in time and will get better.
