    We got him to eat about a quater to a half a cup of food. Gave his meds to him about 15 minutes ago so far nothing is coming back up *crosses fingers* hes not wanting to open his eyes and when he does its a squint. I wish I could do more for him . He keeps wanting to scratch his face but we are trying to stop him before he does. He hasn't had allergy meds today which isn't helping. But we were afraid they'd make him sick as those do upset the belly without food. Hopefully we can get him to eat more in the morning so he can have his allergy meds along with the new meds. All he has been primarily doing is sleeping. He didn't even want to go for a car ride with us earlier which has never happened before. Usually he makes sure he is the first through the door so he doesn't get left behind so we know he isn't feeling good at all.

    Awe poor boy... Great advice above. I'm a bit surprised they did not prescribe neo poly dex ointment. The drops are good but they go away so fast, the ointment stays in longer. I sure hope he feels better tomorrow, he's in a lot of pain.

    The blood serum and triple antibiotic ointment have been helping Brie's ulcers heal, but she also had to have cryosurgery. the hairs on the inside of her eyelids were causing the ulcers. I'm assuming the vet did not see any hairs w tank?

    Well I'm very happy to hear that! The blood serum really does make healing quicker. They take some blood n spin it. Then give you the serum n you put a drop or 2 either twice or three times a day. It does stain the tear stain area a big tho. I'm waiting to give Brie a good bath to get rid of it. I hope Tank feels better soon! Hurting eyes are no fun

    [QUOTE=theparrisfive;376001]Did they work for your bully and any side effects etc at first? We are at our wits end. 100$ a month would be nothing compared to what we are spending in vet costs due to secondary infections because of allergies. We are hoping something starts working soon for his comfort and our bank account. Our vet did mention possibly redoing the allergy testing cause it was done by his previous vet shes wondering if something was missed since obviously something is still going on. She said even with having cats his allergies shouldnt be this bad."

    Yes there are side effects, mostly related tyo suppressed immune system, but talk to your vet. Research on the internet also. Long term effects of taking steroid medications can shorten their life, so weigh the risk with the reward...

    @theparrisfive --- I use sugar free or Lactose free vanilla ice cream for pills - it never fails. Not sure what it is that makes it work, but in the 9 years I've used it -- the pups have never spit it or the pill out.

    Hes now able to keep his eyes open. I ended up taking him off of the pain meds cause either he was throwing them up or panting about 45 minutes after having them. He seems to be doing ok without them right now. He goes back to the vet tomorrow. We discuss allergy meds then but i really dont want to put him on one that can cause long term issues as he will be 3 in october so hes still pretty young. I guess i have some major decisions there. The brat has figured out around what time he is to get his eye meds and hides around each time. i tried switching it up a little bit yesterday and he decided he was just gonna stay put under the bed most of the afternoon lol.

    He went back to the vet friday and the vet said although his eyes look better she is not happy so he has to go again this upcoming thursday. The infection is gone, one eye looks great. the one eye that looks good went from a 10 to almost 15 in the dry eye test which she said is normal. the other eye with the ulcer is still pretty red and irritated. It went from a 5 to a 10 in the dry eye test. She said she really wants to keep a eye on that one eye. We are supposed to continue treatment until we see her this following week.

    Glad to heat one eye is much better! Are they recommending the same treatment or did they give you something else? Did you discuss the possible use of her blood serum?
