Eye, eye, eye, eye…


Wall art in our exam room

Sissy had her regular eye exam on Saturday.  Her pressure was 5, which is well below the 15 which is the highest “normal” she’s allowed.   Other than being very drooly, which we’re guessing is due to vision-related car sickness, Sis had a great trip.  She wasn’t as stressed as her previous visit though, so I think the DAP wipes helped. 


More exam room art

I can’t say enough about Visonvet or the rest of the staff at Eye Care for Animals.   They’re always personable, and they truly care ABOUT Sissy, not just “for” her remaining eye.   We discussed what heartworm and flea and tick preventatives I was using, we reviewed Sissy’s diet, etc.  They might be specialists, but they definitely don’t have tunnel vision and care about the whole dog — and the entire pack.  I was mildly scolded for leaving little Gretchen Greer at home alone since it is a long round trip for us! 

We are so, so blessed to have such a skilled, caring team taking care of our fur-girls!

We wrapped up our adventure with a stop at Dog House Yarns.   They’re having a fabulous sale if you are a local and need to stock up.  Since we were in a hurry to get back to Gretchen, I didn’t do any shopping, but I can’t thank them enough for welcoming us in for a little break from all the car time.  I did get a sneak peek at the Frog Tree alpaca sport they’re ordering…

    I love the art. I once made a collage of eyes that I cut from magazines.

    We have new murals painted on the walls at our clinic. In our exam room (called the Hall Suite) there is a big tree painted. I just hope they don’t paint a squirrel on the branch.

    Good for Sis and her low pressure reading!
