And so we have been to Dr. EyeVet once again. Eye looks good, she said. Inside is normal, no inflammation.

But, there is still some redness around the eye, so he'll continue on his meds twice a day for another six weeks, then recheck.

He won't mind. He has it down. 8 a.m., 8 p.m. Bound into kitchen! SIT! Get treats! Get eyedrop! Get more treats! Best Day Ever!

Here's the dog himself, as of this morning, after a bracing hour and a half of helping in the barn. Best Morning Ever! He posed for this; he's quite gracious about being Available for his public.

Most Interesting Dog in the World.



I've been in CFS crash since last week, on the "can do horses and dogs and cats because I have to, otherwise sitting up is a challenge" level, so putting in considerable amounts of horizontal time. But that's to be expected, after months of Stress Max. Functioning past twitter length is therefore not happening for the most part (and writing a paragraph at a time is kind of slow but also kind of interesting).

At any rate, dog is distinctly on the mend, so that's good. Everything else will sort out when it sorts out.

Hooray for pretty blue eyed doggie getting better!

I hope that you feel better soon, too!

Great news!

Oka was on steroid eye drops for pannus for most of his life. Same deal -- Oh boy, eye drops! Cookies!

Ro has a very good mommy.

Glad it's better!

Happy to hear that Ro is doing better. When my schnauzer, Pepper had uveitis she was already on quite the regimen of meds/eyedrops for existing issues, so there was a color coded spreadsheet table to keep us on track for 5 different drops with different schedules. Pill pockets helped everything, even when no pills were involved. I don't doubt that any and everything tasted better than prescribed diabetic kibble.

I'm so glad that he's feeling better. And I hope you start feeling better soon - SO much empathy on the crash. (I'm there too right now. Sending virtual chocolate!)
