    Default Gator is in the hospital for the night

    I updated a previous post but wanted to say that he is in the hospital tonight. I took him to a new ER vet for his eye being swollen and hurting him and it turns out he has a very severe ulcer that covers his whole cornea. Luckily, it has not gone all the way through the cornea but it is very deep. They did a phone consult with the opthalmologist and he wanted to see him before his regular patients in the morning so he is staying over night. They have started him on two different eye medications and a pain medication. We are unsure of the cause because there are so many. Suspected related to his entropian. His other eye is swollen but the actual eye looks fine.

    I went in tonight and fed him his chicken dinner. He ate well and allowed me to clean his nose rope (yeast problems from a pork issue) and was in good spirits. I think it is because he is on the pain med and is feeling better. I suspect that after we get this healed, we will go ahead with the entropian surgery. We had waited, wanting him to be at least a year old so that his head had the chance to mature first but he is one year in about three weeks so it will most likely be a go.

    My poor guy. Lucy has been whining and Gypsy is being a Klingon.

    Oh man!! I exactly know how you feel having to leave them behind. Hurts your heart... but he's probably being loved on by all the nurses there.
    Ask the experimenters why they experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are like us." Ask the experimenters why it is morally okay to experiment on animals, and the answer is: "Because the animals are not like us." Animal experimentation rests on a logical contradiction. ~Charles R.

    Oh i'm so sorry. At least he is getting it taken care of poor guy. I have had a corneal ulcer myself twice and know that they are no fun at all. Hoe he gets better soon.

    Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...

    Thank you for all of the well-wishes. He is in very good hands (not like that other ER) and I feel confident that he will be ok. I just feel sorry that he is laying in a cold unknown place with that stupid cone on his head. But he has to wear it because he wants to rub his eye and it will just make it worse. At least he was able to have it off to eat. It is one of those hard ones too .

    I hope it heals very soon and it is just so hard to have him away from me even though I know it is for the best. I also hope this prompts others to take eye issues VERY seriously. They can come on very quickly and for so many reasons.
