    Happy for you and Winston. I think that is a sign of a good specialist-first trying to avoid surgery, not "blade happy'.

    I had my list of questions of course, LOL but I didn't need them at all… she did a thorough exam on him and explained everything to me right away. Told me that as of right now she wants to try meds on him for now to see if that will help. Gave him Neo Poly Dex Ointment, and GenTeal Gel eye ointment. Wants to see us in 3 weeks, but she seems to believe his eyes are itching due to allergies NOT eyelash issues. She wants me to discuss this w/my vet. I felt very comfortable w/her from the get go...

    Of course now I'm definitely pissed that my vet wanted to schedule a future surgery when NOW the specialist isn't even convinced that he needs it!!! Why are vets so jumpy about getting surgeries, instead of uncovering why it's happening in the first damn place?!!

    I'm so thankful for this forum, and those of you who told me to see the eye specialist. I had that one already decided, but I'm so glad you guys agreed as well…
    I am just now seeing this!!! Ohhh same story!! Vegas is normally OK, but when his allergies flare his eyes swell, Our vet wanted to do the same thing! surgery. NOT that I would have let him and I explained to him, NO his eyes only do this during allergy season. I get antibiotic drops and his eyes clear up right away and lube drops. Funny since I joined this group how many times I have said NO to the vet, Not that I know better, but I always put it out here first before I do anything!! Im sure he hates me when I say..."well I belong to a bully group, and they said" LMAO!!!!!

    So happy to hear surgery may not be in his future! I pray the ointment works. I know what you mean....I found a small place on Sheldon's belly that looks like it could have been the start of a staph infection so I cleaned it with Hibiclens gave him a left over antibiotic and today it looks good. Thanks to this sight I didn't panic or freak out just went and got my bully first aid and took care of it!!! THANK YOU EBN!!!

    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 agree Kelly, Thank God I came on here first for advice… I remember Vegas' eyes the last time, poor baby boy

    That's such great news and very interesting... Boeboe did have eyelashes scratching cos even I could see them growing in there, but now after 5 operations it must be something else. Her eyes got back to normal but one eye is still teary. But if only one eye is teary it can't be allergies can it. I'm thinking maybe her eye is teary cos of the operation... maybe it's producing more tears to keep the eye wet... I don't know...

    I'm really glad to hear Winston got a good exam by a great specialist it's such a relief when you meet a new doctor and you like them.
    You were born with the ability to change someone's life, don't ever waste it.
