Yesterday was a horrible day. I was getting ready to take my daughter to work at about 6:45 am, the dogs were all doing their normal stuff. My daughter's Dachshund, Otto and her Chihuahua, Rico were playing on the couch when I heard a horrible screech and found poor Rico with his eye dislocated and Otto trying to lick him and comfort him. It freaked me out because I know it is an emergency and where I live there are NO emergency vets. My daughter has to call her vet and the soonest he could be seen was 8 am. To make the long story short, they had to put him under anesthesia and replace the eye and suture the lid shut for3 weeks. We have meds for him to take orally and to be put in his eye (the left the tiniest bit in the corner open so he could have his drops and ointment) and we go back in 3 weeks to see if he will retain sight in the eye or if he will even be able to keep the eye. It ticks me off that he had to wait for over an hour to be seen because none of the vet clinics in this area provide after hours care. Oh, and to add insult to injury, while he was under for his eye they went ahead and neutered him! :toothy8: The poor baby has "the cone of shame" and he hates it and he is totally miserable.
