Ok, so this eye thing is getting ridiculous because I keep going in to get checked and they say we have to wait and see, but if it hasn't improved by tomorrow, they need to re-grid scrape it. And if that doesn't work, then I have to have surgery which totally sucks and all this for a regular old ulcer!
(Ike's mom here - just a word of advice to everyone with older dogs: take them to the vet right away if anything seems wonky with an eye. I could see his ulcer, and got Ike in right away, and we're still going through this BS. If an ulcer goes for longer, it can get too deep and require surgery automatically. All this is for a superficial non-healing ulcer. And ulcers tend to not heal in older dogs.)
Whatever, mom. So I've been laying around feeling sorry for myself and sleeping a lot because it hurts to open my eye but my mom is giving me doggy pain medicine and also her TMJ pain medicine because it's safe in dogs and she checked with the doctor. That makes me sleepy too but I feel better when I have it. My mom tried to take a pic of my eye but I won't open it when she comes near me because she always puts stuff in it.
This is the worst, and I need tons of healing vibes sent my way! I'll be doing this when I get them.
