Quick update. I just picked Maddy up from the vet…$1100.00 later, thank goodness for credit cards.
She is fine from her cherry eye surgery–although I have to say that picture really does look scary. It freaked me out when I picked her up. The vet says the lump is her lymph nodes and hopefully it’s just an infection that antibiotics will take care of. So hoping for that. I wont have the results of the biopsy for another 48 hours.
In the meantime that lovely cone is supposed to stay on her for 7-10 days. Days not hours…dear God. I have to put drops in her eyes 3 times a day starting tomorrow. Have you ever put drops in a dogs or cats eyes? Seriously, so not fun.
The antibiotics are pills 2 X a day. Pills are much easier you can hide them in treats.
Of course, I had to hand feed her some kibble as she can’t reach the food in the bowl with the cone on. Hmnn, I may have to make the cone a little shorter in a few days. Honestly I was expecting her to have some kind of goggles on like when I had my lasik eye surgery. I think I’ll google that and see what I can find.
So Maddy is home safe and sound, separated from Missy and Marly as they are much too curious around her.
I will update when I have the biopsy test results. Also Missy has worms, so I have to take care of that as well.
Good times….good times…….
