    Default Winston's visit to the Eye Specialist today...

    Took Winston to Nashville today to see the eye specialist…

    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 sooooooooooooooooooo happy you went to the specialist!! Like it's been said so many times before on here some of these doctors are more concerned about the $$$$$ then they are about the welfare of the bully's. I pray and hope Winston doesn't have to have surgery!

    Well, i'm glad the eye specialist will go with drops instead of jumping right into the surgery. She does sound like a great doc and i sure hope the eye meds will help Winston so that surgery can be avoided all together!

    This is SUCH good news! Hopefully the ointments will work and allergies will clear up ASAP and no surgeries needed

    Very glad you got a specialist's opinion, nothing like peace of mind
    about our beloved babies. Give him sloppy kisses from me & Cami.

    So relieved to hear that the specialist doesn't necessarily believe that Winston will need surgery and wanted to try the meds first! Thoughts and prayers are with you and Winston that the meds do the trick

    Great news hopefully the ointment's will work and no surgery will be needed, I think a lot of vets look at the $$$$ too
