My poor baby!!!

26 Sep

mashtiLittle Mashti has a very deep and serious puncture wound in her left eye. (Most likely from tussling with the cat, but possibly from shoving her face into everything she can find.) She’s a feisty little trooper and doesn’t even seem to realize she has a big plastic cone on her head. I’m glad it looks so silly so at least I can smile a little while I’m busy worrying about her. She has some meds and an appointment with the optometrist on Friday. Wish her luck!

ETA – Shawn just told me the vet said not to worry too much, losing an eye isn’t as big a deal to a dog as it is to a human. How’s that for the exact opposite of reassuring?

Also, probably not the cat – not the right size or shape. No idea what it’s from though, we didn’t see her get hurt, just noticed some squinting that got worse the next day.

    Ohhhh poor baby!!! How is she doing with the collar? My poor dog ran into every wall in the house. :p Hope she’s better quick and the optomitrist isn’t too awful expensive!

    She usually hits it on corners, but otherwise is fine. Thanks for the well wishes! (for Mashti and my pocketbook) 😉

    That sucks, but I’m sure she’ll heal up nicely. And if the eye has to go, you can dress her as a pirate for Halloween–yes!!

    Oh, poor baby!
    I was so worried that my cat was going to hurt my Pug-in-law when we all lived together… he managed to give her a scratch on the cheek, but that’s it.
    And yeah… definitely pirate costume. 🙂

    I feel sorry for Mashti and hope that she’ll be better soon.

    I’m sure she’ll be fine no matter what happens! But I know what it’s like to worry about a pet and I feel for you! I hope she gets better soon.
