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.

Daisy girl turns 9 years old

It seems like yesterday when we had this tiny little boxer we named Daisy.

Today she turns 9 years old.

She was an aggressive little pup and very opinionated. She hated long sleeves on anyone. The vet told us he thought whoever removed her dew claw and tail had long sleeves and they did a bad job on the dew- claw and probably hurt her.

We got her out of this stage and she became very playful loving to play fetch and jumping as high as she could and doing boxer acrobats. Then cooling off in her plastic pool like she was relaxing after a long hard day.

She still loves the Chunk It balls the orange one that is basically indestructible and she loves the big tug a war ball called the Jolly Ball.

She still talks to me when I talk directly to her and ask her questions lol. She loves a treat when she comes in from outside.

She sleeps more now and plays less but gets her energy spurts sometimes.

Pics with her ears like she’s flying I love and Jack says she’s the flying nun. She is still very photogenic and always has been.

Even though she’s a little bossy she will always be my Daisy Girl and I love her very much.

Happy 9th Birthday Daisy I hope someone gives you extra treats today lol.

Daisy girl

I found this picture from last year of Daisy and the way her head was tilted was so cute.

I decided I needed to post it so Daisy could say HELLO.

She is a talker you talk to her she talks back I have no idea what she is saying but she does talk.

Dogs bring lots of smiles to your life and joy to your heart.
