This time last year Ozzie had Eye surgery. Boxers are prone to corneal ulcers…and he is true to being a boxer.
He has the same problem again, in his other eye.
We caught it earlier and the Dr. is trying something different in lieu to doing surgery.
She did a procedure in the office, (I could hardly look…lots of poking and scraping!) and he has a contact in his bad eye for this week, plus lots of ointments, drops and pills.
And the cone of shame.
We will know in a week if this keeps him from needing surgery or not.
You may recall, we just had his teeth Profe$$ionally cleaned (for health reasons).
Having furry friends comes with a price. When you adopt a pet, these are the kind of things that must be anticipated though.
When I told the coach about this new eye issue he said “Just like having a boat, every time I turn around something on him is broken.”
We love our furry boat.
My comedienne Lindsay told me a joke yesterday:
“Where is Ozzie from?”
And in other medical news LoLo had all her wisdom teeth pulled on Wednesday. Two of them were imbedded in her jaw bone.
She(and I) was expecting the worst. She is a tough cookie and only took a few pain pills the first day, then went to ibuprofen with 1/2 a pain pill a few times a day. Girls are tough.
Her boyfriend told her how horrible it was for him, he could not walk out of the Dr’s office, pain for days, even brought him to tears. I think he is still traumatized by it. Boys.
I referred to his wisdom teeth pulling as: Man cold.
So, this weekend, I’ll be taking care of my little chipmunk and avoiding being taken down by a cone-head with no depth perception or peripheral eyesight.
Just call me Nurse
What is on your calendar for the weekend? I hope something delightful!
Bee a responsible pet owner.
