Daisy’s Corneal Ulcer

I had to take Daisy to the vet on Thursday.

We are using a local vet that has a new practice. I felt like their charges were cheaper than the bigger vets in our area but at the same time, you need to be careful at these vet offices because they find reasons to charge you for one more thing.

Daisy had been winking at me all day Wednesday so I knew something was wrong with her eye. I was worried she might have lost her sight.

After staining it the vet discovered she had a corneal ulcer which is often caused by trauma like dogs playing, or a stick, etc. She and Zoee always play so this is not surprising but now Zoee is trying to kiss the eye back to good health like she knows it’s bothering her. This is driving Jack and me both crazy.

She has eye drops every 8 hours for a week then every 12 hours for 2 weeks and anti-inflammatories for irritation caused by the ulcer.

All in all, she is fine but it’s a good thing I noticed her winking at me lol.

  1. Yep, it is good you noticed the winking. Poor Daisy. As to Zoee, don’t you know that dog kisses can heal anything and everything? lol, When our kitten Tiberius had an ear infection, our dog Idina tried to lick it back to health…
