    Castor has had eye issues for several years - first enthropion and now a dry eye which requires daily medication. Our ordinary vet clinic has always diagnosed him correctly, but on a few occasions they have referred him to an eye specialist, which has been good.

    Castor is snoring beside me - it sounds as if he is humming 'say hello to Joey'
    Thanks friend! She’s not an ophthalmologist but is a sub specialty of hers, I looked for closest canine ophthalmologist and there is one about 4 hours from here. Of course we would travel days if needed. I really feel that if doc wasn’t sure she could treat her we would be sent elsewhere.

    This has been her same vet all of her life. She’s done this procedure many times.

    Joey snoring next to me now lol, saying hi to Castor!
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    I thought that we were doing the right thing for Joey, if I ever thought we were wrong it would break my heart. Her care and comfort have been my highest priority. I would do anything for her. I was totally in agreement to take the least invasive route, antibiotic ointment, atropine drops, weekly scans and check ups.

    Thank you all for your support and kindness, I will stay in touch.

    Thanks, truly, thank you. Oh I know no one questioned my decisions for Joey, I just got scared. I started questioning myself. Stressful, as so many know.

    I’ll stay in touch for sure

    I don't think anyone here would ever question your love for and devotion to Joey. I'm looking forward to hearing that the procedure was a success and she's on the mend. This has been a very trying ordeal at a very trying time. I hope you two sail right thru this with no issues!

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Really Chip, thank you. I know that, I’m just scared. I’m going to get my sweet girl through this, we’re a team.

    The support and kindness here is priceless!

    Sending LOTS of prayer for you, Joey, and your Vet. I would definitely trust the veterinarian I have for my for my dogs to do any procedure that he says he can do, as I have had him for years. If you trust your vet, that is A good thing, and if she didn't feel confident, she would tell you, as I am sure by now, she knows how much you LOVE Joey. WE ALL love Joey and you! Big hugs for both of you!! All will be WELL, that I can tell! @sisters3

    It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"

    Great that ophthamology is a sub-speciality of your vet's - then she knows if this is something she can treat! Wishing you a nice New Year's Eve with Joey! We have finished dinner and Castor got some nice fillet of beef so he was happy. Now some rest before dessert and then champagne at midnight!


    Castor is on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/castorthebulldog/

    Thanks for making me feel confident again �� So looking forward to getting Joey back to 100%!
