    I feel your pain and frustration! I have on numerous occasions dealt with vets that keep having you come back to recheck things only to find out they were entirely wrong. It's frustrating, especially when it puts your baby at risk. Had this gone on much longer Brie could have permanently damaged her eyesight like Molly's ulcer did. Not only that but the cost of the rechecks and stains that you had initially probably could have paid for a huge chunk of that surgery. Not having a good vet can literally mean life or death for your pets, and can put a hurtin' on your pocketbook too.

    Lisa, I'm glad you got in touch with me. I'm so happy I was able to help you. Now think of all the future members who will read your words that you can help through Bries (very unfortunate) experiences. There's a positive outlook to your anger

    The thing that kills me is trying to find someone good. Of course, when you ask, they're going to say they have a ton of experience with bulldogs, all dogs, any dog. I am so glad you got a good resolution to fix Brie's eyes.

    I am so sorry to hear you went through all of that! Thankfully you followed your gut and went to see a different vet! I am so happy that she is on the mend and that you found a vet you love & can trust!

Please make sure the vet you are taking your bully to is knowledgeable about bullies even if it it to the slightest degree. If you have doubts or your gut is telling you something is not right with the care you are receiving...don't sit on that feeling. Research n find another. I've switched..my gut told me to switch but I thought I was just being over protective or neurotic etc. however, I was right in my feelings. I'm not here to bash the vet I was taking Brie to, however I do want to share why I am so incredibly outraged...if you all don't mind ..please. I think it might help me clear my head n not go there n beat someone up..LOL I have been taking Brie there since 8 weeks. The original 2 vets were nice n seemed to know about bullies. Well, they both left n other vets started..relief vets, vets in training, vets w experience..several vets there..all supposedly grand. Ok..fine..I wasn't thrilled w seeing rotating ppl, but I understood. So..Brie got the ulcer in her left eye..they stained her eyes, gave us 2 medicines n demanded we return every 2 days as eye issues we urgent to take care if..not a problem, I brought her in every 2 days. And every 2 days they stained her eye, said it was healing and wanted to add her blood serum to it for better healing. Ok..so we did that. Her right eye started blinking n squinting..her left eye mind you was pretty much closed. The vets office looked at both eyes...mentioned she had hairs but didn't think that was what had caused the ulcer...mentioned hairs..that is all. Wtf do I know about hairs in the eyelids...told us to keep any eye on both eyes put the antibiotic ointment in both n return in 2 days. ?? so, we started putting all the medicines in both eyes at the suggestion of someone here..THANK YOU Lisa (@desertskybulldogs).. I sent her video n pics cos I was so concerned. She also recommended i take her o see the vet the next day. Well, the next day neither of her eyes were really opening. It was the weekend n I called the specialist that spayed n fixed her palate. They recommended a different vet which got us in immediately. The vet took one look at Brie w out any instruments at first, n knew right off the bat thst the hairs in her eyelids were the issue and desperately needed to be removed. Her eyes were red n swollen. 2 days later he got us in to the ophthalmologist..because it was urgent. My bully had been in pain for 2 weeks ..2 frikkn weeks..she also developed ulcers in both eyes from the hairs. I'm getting her today from the ophthalmologist who did the cryotherapy yesterday ..and who could not believe it was not suggested weeks ago... Ok..thank you for letting me vent. Brie should be ok (?) and we have a new and wonderful vet.
    Good for you finding a new vet!!! It just torques my behind when vets don't take the time to learn or research an animal. I understand your outrage and rightly so. I don't know that I could be so calm knowing these vets left that baby in pain for two weeks. GRRRRRRR!!! I would have some serious word vomit for those people.

    R.I.P. Duece Man 9-13-14 Gone but not forgotten, always in our hearts! Till we meet again over the Bridge, Mommy misses you.

    I'm so very sorry about your vet drama, and Thank God you went to the specialist!!! It is so damn frustrating trying to help your dog & you keep getting different answers.

    I believed Bella died because of our vet... I let him spay her during her heat cycle, and I didn't realize she could bleed to death (which is what happened). When I did more research I realized most vets will NOT spay during heat, even though my vet told me it wasn't an issue. I had spayed our Boxer during heat & there were no issues. I feel horrible that I didn't do more research, or get on EBN sooner... But ultimately I trusted our vet he's supposed to be an "expert". I'm in the process of finding a new vet... Sigh ; (
