vet visits and tears
Friday, May 17, 2013
Today is a very sad day at my house. I had to put one of the kitties to sleep.. Katrina was my brother's cat and she was a warrior in that timid personality of hers.. Katrina died from kidney failure today.. Rest in peace my brave little warrior.. Her sister is missing her terribly.. Ursula.. as we all are.
Now for more news about my beloved Skippy dog.. We went to the vet for the annual checkup and heartworm testing. Well come to find out Skip has glacoma in his one eye and has very limited vision in the other. So my vet Dr. Anderson said that because of Skip's glacoma in his eye ( the vitrious fluid doesn't drain like a human eye) it is causing pressure on his optic nerve( like having a migraine everyday).ICKY!!!
So I asked about what we can do for the little guy.. Dr. Anderson said that the best thing to do for Skip is eye surgery to remove his eyes. Or to keep him a drugged up pup.Skip can't see anyway and has adjusted amazing well. So after crying for a day or two I have decided to go the eye surgery route for the little guy will be so much happier and will start playing again with his stuffies.. and his little head won't hurt( no migraines)
I know that a lot of people would say"just put Skip down" but Skip still has a lot of years ahead of him and I want the best for my pup and to enjoy the rest of his years pain free.
