i sware aniamls know when its a weekend. today i wake up to sassie(dog) acting sick well she was bad enough for me to be a total mess all day worring about her. all day has been should we take her to the vets or can we wait till tomarow when they are open.
we took her to the vets. she had her 3rd eye lids half up and she moped around couldnt get comfertable was drooling it was so hard to watch. so we get to the vets and im thinking she is dieing and about ready to cry (something i had been trying to avoid all day) and the vet noticed how sick she was to. sassie has clocoma and her persure in her eye was 60 when normal is 20 my poor baby is in so much pain. $200 and my baby is sleeping and seems to feel a little better after some pain meds and pepcid ac im a little less stressed out but we are not out of the woods yet she mite loss that eye. the vet said that she either has some vison or none at all in that eye my poor baby. sassie is 12ys old.
sorry no spell checker and i cant find one that will work with windows 98 ya i am using an old comp.
awww well i am glad she is feeling better and you are a good momma for taking her to the vet. you are lucky it was only $200, someone was watching out for you up there because the starting costs for most impromptu vet visits today are around that.
Awe poor sweetie. How old is she? Losing an eye isnt the end for her if she is young right? Its so hard when our pets are sick. Because you cant tell where they really are health wise since they cant communicate it. Things can take a turn for the worse so fast so its stressful dealing with it.
well today she is acting almost normal its a good sign. her eye looks a little better not much but i think the eye droops are working a bit. she ate last night and has barking at any nosie she can lol thats a good thing. we have another apointment for tomarow to recheck the presure in her eye. actuly the $200 was not that bad we spent $120 at the vets and another 79 at the human pharmacy just for the eye drops.
i realy cant spell lol she has glucoma (still probly not right). i know that dogs do well with one eye and even do prety good being blind but its still hard for me becuse i whouldnt want that to happen to me so i really hate for her to have to.
the sad thing about the money is that we had to scrap that up and well she will more than likely need more stuff and im not sure were im going to come up with it but i will i have alway found ways to help my aniamls.
