good to hear you've got an appointment. his eye definitely doesn't look right but I've certainly seen way worse hay poke heal up in a couple of weeks once the eye is clear and they're getting regular eye drops. good luck tomorrow I look forward to hearing how he gets on.
Hi everyone here's an update on Elvis for you.
The vet said he has mild conjunctivitis so we have Isathal eye drops to apply twice daily for 7 days. She couldn't see anything still in his eye or any scratches on it. Elvis is still fine in himself like he always had been
Thanks for the nice comments everyone I'm about to do his eye drops for the first time so wish me luck I doubt he will be a good boy @Sweet Potato he has a habit of pulling at clothes and skin whenever he's held... I'm trying to get on top of it though
I take back what I said about Elvis he was a very good boy I sat him in a fleece cosy and he also just sat there and let me put the drop in with no problems whatsoever. And he let me have a little cuddle while he ate his veggies treat at the end
Can he please come and teach Gundham that they're really not that bad. Gundham has a nasty tendency to toss his head about just as I'm about to drop it in so the bottle hits him on the head, nearly poked his eye out a few times with that little trick. not to mention the amount of times he's shaken the eye drops all over me as soon as they touch him.
After a promising start Elvis has decided he'd rather play catch me if you can than let me pick him up 2 minutes or so It took me about half an hour to catch him the other day! And he's also taken up the habit of closing his eye at the exact moment the drop drops. He does like to be difficult At least he doesn't toss his head all over the place @Sweet Potato
Hi everyone just a little update in Elvis.
Saturday morning was the end of his course of eye drops but on Sunday I saw him squinting his eye a bit and yesterday it was a little watery (not as much as before but still watery). I emailed the vets and they said to use the ointment as prescribed before and if we don't see improvement in 24hrs of restarting the medicine they want to see him again.
I've been at school so I haven't been able to check throughout the day but it looks fine at the moment (thanks for asking ). I'll keep having a look now I'm home but my worry is that because the squinting/ watering isn't constant and doesn't last very long it'll look fine this evening and I'll think I can stop the eye drops again and then he'll squint it again tomorrow...
