Not-so-good News at the Vet Today

Hi everybody!

We went back to the veterinary ophthalmologist today and the news wasn’t what I wanted to hear.

She told me and Jen that my eyes aren’t getting any better with medication and she doesn’t want to up the steroid dosage because it could impact my liver, kidneys, and cause diabetes. Surgery is the next step. Jen scheduled it for next Tuesday.

The good news is the vet said it shouldn’t be a painful recovery for me.Β  The bad news I’ll hafta wear the dreaded Cone of Shame for several days.

There’s also a chance the granulomas could come back.

Please keep us in your thoughts. Me cuz I hafta go through this, and Jen because she is stressing already.

      1. To be honest we find the soft one ,( shaped the same as the hard plastic one) is excellent. The round one not so good but the soft cone is excellent and more comfortable. But yes do as the vet πŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ
