When I woke up today, Pixie’s left eye looked out of whack – like it was lazy. That prompted me to take her in without hesitation (a mere two days after first noticing an issue with her eyes).
She’s apparently got a very small ulcer in her right eye at this point, and her left eye is swollen. She’s on antibiotics and pain killers now. The cone, however, is making it impossible to get the new ointment into her eyes (which was difficult to do in the first place); I’m asking Imei for a bit of help.
She’s resting on my bed right now. I’ve closed all the blinds in the bedroom, too; her eyes are a bit more sensitive to bright light – and anything I can do to ease her suffering, I’ll do.
I’ve got an appointment set up with the vet again on Thursday morning at 8am, but the emergency vet offered to see her free-of-charge tomorrow at some point (just for a quick look-see). In a couple of weeks, they’re scheduling a full blood panel (although an initial pancreatitis screening has already come back negative).
You have no idea how relieved I am to know that I had signed up for Trupanion just weeks ago; the bills are already close to $500, but I set my deductable at $0 so very little (if any at all) should be out-of-pocket when the incident is reported.
