Yellow and Cold

UntitledNo, not yellow snow, although there’s plenty of that around here too.

This post is all about Sissy’s eye drops.  Because we are over 100 miles from Vision Vet, we sometimes have to have refills of the eye drop that keeps the precious right eye going delivered by UPS.   What we received last week was yellow, not the slightly cloudy version of clear to which we are accustomed.  When I called VV, I was told to cease use immediately and use the emergency drop until the replacement Demecarium arrives.

Luckily, the tech I was talking to was thorough – they all are.  She asked me to read her the expiration date on the Latanoprost I had in Sissy’s medicine bag…  it was out of date!  Fortunately, it’s readily available and $80 and a trip to our pharmacy later, the Knight had the “juice” in hand.

I am still kicking myself.  How did that happen?  Clearly, I’m not being vigilant enough.  There’s something to be said for the old school yard basketball rules, “No harm, no foul,” but …

I’ve saved it all; the yellow “Demecarium” (in quotes because…  who knows?!) and the out of date Latanoprost.   I’m pretty sure Vision Vet will call a team huddle, but if not…  I will.  We need to regroup, figure out what went wrong, and call a new play so this – both situations – doesn’t happen again.

Sissy is NOT amused by the COLD drops.  We’re giving extra treats, and hoping the brown truck brings a return to normal on Monday.

    I’m glad you were able to get a back up locally, but that is a scary situation! I hope everything gets straightened out quickly.

    I’m glad the tech could help you find something locally until the precious fluid arrives by Brown.
