Op went well picked her up about 7, eye very swollen and she had a cone on that would fit an elephant. Swapped it for a smaller one as she couldn't even have a drink. Got painkillers and antibiotics, back on Tuesday for check up. Thanks again.

Up a couple of times during the night but fairly bouncy this morning, not happy to go for an on lead walk. Wanted to go in the car with the other dogs for her usual walk. Wee bit of an upset stomach but scoffed her food. Roll on next Tuesday when we go back to the vets. Can't believe how swollen her eye is though, looks as though she has a tennis ball under the skin. When we were at the vets yesterday, got chatting to a woman whose dog had his eye removed 3 weeks ago and I honestly didn't notice. Turned out the dog was now blind but he had some sort of grey plastic box under his chin, was attached to his collar. She had got this from America and it was a sonic? thing which helped the dog get about. He was off lead quite confidently on walks and managed really well.

Been a bit of a nightmare. Op did go well however pressure in remaining eye gone from 7 to 44 so unless pressure goes down and stays down she may lose other eye. The collar came off on Monday after check up and I would have said that she was pretty much back to her usual self yesterday apart from the eye pressure. However yesterday evening she chased Indie down the hall took the corner slightly wrongly and collided with the corner of the freezer opening up her eye. Got advice from emergency vet and saw our own vet this morning, wound glued together. This means collar back on and no doubt pressure still raised. Got 3 different eyedrops 3 times daily. She understandably was very restless all night and not happy to be at vets. Just a rollercoaster, praying that Monday brings some good news. Thanks for asking

Oh dear. How sad that her high spirits chasing Indie (good thing) caused problems (bad thing sad.gif )

Everything crossed that the pressure comes down in her eye quickly. hug.gif

Some good news, eye pressure down to 17 which is good. Still a bit of swelling though. Go back in 2 weeks. She is back to her usual self, the collar is off, she is refusing to be left and is first to the gate and into the car. Not really sure how much vision she has in her left eye but she jumped over a small log yesterday and seems reasonably confident when out off lead. Have got some grey foam pipe insulation stuff and put it on the sharp edges in the utility room and doorway.
