    Default Bre's Eye (New Pics)

    So...3 days into antibiotic eye ointment and it isn't as goopy but definitly still turning blue and cloudy (Her eye looks goopy cause this was right after ointment application)



    She still has her follow up vet visit this week and early stage glaucoma and allergies were discussed as possible issues(I personally am leaning towards glaucoma because allergies don't cause the cloudy blue eye that I am aware of?)

    Oh...and I know some of you were concerned about her 9lb weight loss and I have been examining her and I think she must have been overweight. Here is a photo of her from above and I can't see ribs or anything...she looks alright doesn't she? Quick someone reassure me that she's fine! LOL

    From that angle, she looks fine.

    On a slightly stranger note, I was looking at the picture of her eye when my son came up behind me. He asked what was wrong with it. I said that they think its early glaucoma. He says "does that mean she can smoke pot now?

    The things kids say!!

    For me, her name was Abby

    Hello~ Is there any way she could have pocked it or there could be something in her eye like some sand or something. My girl Cleopatra has this problem all the time and a couple of times she has scratched her eye somehow. She also has gotten dirt and sand from playing with other bullies and her ointment usually takes about a week for it to work. Hope this helps a little.

    It could be glaucoma or an ulcer; her weight seems ok to me just weigh her weekly she shouldnt lose more now that she is at her goal weight! I love Miss bre! I would probably do a cbc just to be sure

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    Ill make her walk around for a photo shoot after work today! Lol I guess laying down does make her pudge out a little so it's hard to tell. Even standing there are no visible ribs though so that is good right? They did do a stain of her eyes when we were there last week and they said there are no ulcers or scratches on her eye surface. Plus all she does is follow me around and sleep...if she were more active or played with the other dogs then I would say a foreign object in her eye would be a good guess. I will definitely ask about blood work when we are at the vet for the follow up. Thanks for the info and advice guys! Look for even more updated pics as requested later!

    Did the vet say anything about the weight when you were in for the eye?

    I think some of our bullies tend to be on the heavier side -- or rather, LOOK so. Bea is shaped - truly - like a cinder block with legs and I am VERY careful with what/how/much she eats. I do this because being overweight could present it's own set of issues; ones I'd rather avoid, if possible. But I'm used to her frame and "look" so Bo looks downright athletic to me. It's hard to tell really. What did the vet say, @MamaAndi?

    Agreed it can take a week for the eye ointment to work. The more often you put it in the better.

    From the pic laying down I don't think she looks too skinny, but I do see lots of loose skin and I do think she may be a tad underweight. Especially with her limited activity. With the behavior you are describing to be honest I would be concerned. Is she eating better now? I wonder if giving her puppy food may put a bit of weight on....?

    The vet didn't say anything about her weight. The vet tech told Bre good job with loosing the weight? She gets the eye ointment twice a day till the followup. And no she isn't eating any better, just the same as she has been. Eats a few bites at first then finishes the rest at her bedtime (a few hours later).

    Okay...there is only one standing up picture because she was being a stinker and didn't want to stand once she figured out we weren't going anywhere! Hopefully you guys can check these out and weigh in on how she looks weight wise. Thanks! @desertskybulldogs @acarabias @Vicaroo1000 @cowsmom @2BullyMama @BruceP @Twice
