    Default Billy's Ouchie :(

    Billy trapped the cat at its litter tray late yesterday afternoon and she told him in no uncertain terms that she wasn't happy. Unfortunatley she caught his eye
    His 3rd eyelid is badly swollen and at times totally covering his eye all together. It doesnt seem to be bothering him, he's not rubbing or scratching at it thankfully.

    Needless to say we went to the vets this morning and she put dye in his eye to examine the cornea, unfortunately she cant see the whole of it because the swelling to his 3rd eyelid is so bad.
    She's given us some antibiotic eyegel that will treat an unlcer aswell as treat the infection/irritation in his 3rd lid and we will be going back on Monday so she can have another look.

    Whilst there we talked about our difficulties introducing puppy food into his diet and she has recommended a puppy formula and even offered to get some in for us if we struggle to find it in the shops. Its a salmon and potato grain free kibble that I have already seen...our pet shop is getting it in for us If this fails she will involve the nutricionist (sp) to ensure he gets enough vitamins and minerals to aid his growing on home cooked food until he is old enough for us to start him on adult food. She did mention a prescription only diet that they give to struggling dogs with allergies with good results but that is only in an adult formula....she has told me 12 months for allergy testing but will bring it forward if we are really struggling to establish him on a good food.

    Here's poor Billy with his poorly eye and dye stained face

    Oh and he's 15 weeks and ways 10kg er 1 minute.....22 1/2lb. Which is just below UK average (11kg at 16wks) so maybe I'll add a little more rice in his dinner to give him the all important carbs.

    I think it looks much worse than it is cos it really isnt bothering him at all. No rubbing or scratching at it at all....so fingers crossed its just superficial and no damage has been done to his cornea.
    He's currently playing Tug with Lucy so I'm pretty sure he's ok...Billy kisses to everyone.

    Sounds like he is not in pain which is good to hear! But oh he looks so miserably sweet! I hope the diet works too. Paws crossed for improvement and a good vet visit Monday!
