I just got back from the specialist, and I'm afraid it's bad news
Winston has another ulcer in his right eye from scratching it, and she actually put a contact in to help it heal. As soon as she put the contact in there the swelling went down in his eye… Not only is the eyelid turning internally to cause irritation, but he also has the inner eyelashes that are irritating the eyes. At this point surgery is imminent I go back in a week so she can re-check his eyes, and then we can schedule the surgery. She did give me a name of an allergy specialist in Nashville to go see, but now matter how much testing is done it's NOT going to alleviate the fact that his lashes need to be removed.
He has the cone of shame on, and I brought home a ton of meds…
Zyrtec, Rimadyl, Ofloxacin, Neo Pol Bacit, & GenTeal
He seems miserable, so if anyone has any suggestions for this stupid cone that would be great!!! I had to take it off for him to get something to drink, and I doubt he will eat w/it on...
I'm NOT going to lie, I'm REALLY upset about this… I broke down in the car before the long drive home She told me that they do surgery on bulldogs ALL the time, but of course she has NO idea what my year has been like. Thanks for all the support as always guys… I'm probably going to need a valium on surgery day!!!
