Default Well..Stewie is off the hook!

So back in Sept/Oct, Sammie & Stewie were playing & he snapped at her face, near her eye. Shortly after we noticed a white spot in Sammie's eye. So, we assumed that Stewie bit her. We took her the vet & they did a couple of tests & said they agreed. Got some medicine, everything was good. Well, a couple of weeks ago, we noticed the spot was worse & there was one in the other eye. Took her back to the vet, then an eye specialist this morning. Turns out she has corneal dystrophy. They did bloodwork to find out what caused it. Could be calcium, genetics,or hyperthyroidism. Which if its thyroid, that would be what's caused her dry skin too! We should find out on Monday. We got some more medicine, that we'll probably have to use the rest of her life, to keep it from progressing. It shouldn't affect her eye sight (at least not till she's old), so that's at least good.

So, long story short, I guess Stewie was getting blamed for something he didn't even do! Poor baby! I'm glad that he didn't bite her eye, but at the same time I wish it was something that simple!

He is sweet most of the time! He plays rougher with Sammie than she does with him! And I've noticed lately that he's been the one starting all the trouble! He's getting onrier (sp?) the older he gets! LOL

Yeah, at least now we know what's wrong with her. Going to the vet every month was getting a little expensive! She'll have to go back in 6 months, then once a year after that, but that's not too bad. I don't know much about the hyperthyroidism, but it seems like that would better if thats what causing it b/c I'm thinking they'd give her meds for it, which would hopefully help with her flaky skin. And her excessive water drinking!
