Just got back from the doggie eye specialist. The ulcers still had not healed, she told me corgi's are notorius for these things not healing like they should. She did a corneal debridement, then put soft contacts in each eye. Chloe goes back in two weeks for a check up, if we're lucky this will do the trick, but it may take longer. The vet reassured me that they will eventually be healed, and Chloe will not lose her eyesight.

Now my humiliating dog pix:

Glad to hear she will be OK. That color works well with her.

Every time I see a dog with one of those things, I think "doggy megaphone." Also, I think "stay out of the rain!"

But I'm kinda weird.

Maybe I should stick her on the roof and see if I can pull in Dish Network.

She's quite smart - took about 5 minutes for her to figure out she has to walk/trot with her head up, and to take corners wide so she doesn't crash the cone into a wall.

I feed her Nutro Max Natural Choice Lamb and Rice, and a PetTab vitamin.

What medication regimine & schedule do they have her on now? Is she still on the Tobramycin? Good luck with her & the E-collar.

It makes me sad to think about a dog going blind and it not understanding what was going on. Poor blind doggies. Glad yer pooch's going to be ok.

Bad Dog! Bad Post!
LOL! Nice.

The indignity of the cone, that's the worst part. They seem to be asking "why are you doing this to me?" and you can't explain.

/sending good doggy thoughts Chloe's way.

Still on Tobramycin - 3X a day, if that runs out she told me to use up the Gentimiacin (sp?). She's also on a once a day 10ml of Metacam.

She's hating the collar - if I could figure out another way to keep her from "washing her face" with her paws I'd use it.

See if you can find a clear one......Fosby was a little more comfortable when he could at least see thru it.

He still ate it though.

I don't think she's going to eat it, but she sure is pulling out all the stops on me! She appears to be in the "I am so depressed, how could you do this to me" phase. Let her outside to pee, had to drag her in, she was laying in the rain, in the mud by the birdbath. :rolleyes: "See! I'm so upset I'll sleep in mud!!"

Dog plays me like a violin......

The opaque/translucent E-collars allow light & shadows to be more vissible to the pets, so they aren't quite as freaked by people/pets sneaking up on them from behind. It generally takes around 2-3+ days for most pets to adjust/re-sign themselves to wearing them, some never do. They do ususally assume that "why am I being punished/nobody loves me/everyone hates me/what did I do to deserve this look"

Hope all works out great in the end for you. All the best.

Just wait/remember,

some day she'll decide which nursing home to place you in.

Oh, wait, that's human children. Nevermind.

Snap, she'll be fine. Seriously. I had to hospitalize mine for a week two years ago. That was traumatic for him, and I visited several times each day. I don't think he remembers, and neither will she.

And for any non-animal lovers who question this behavior/expense: bite me.

Good news Snap

For future prevention of these, either dose her with some ointment (can just be artificial tear ointment) every night, or at the very least when you suspect she might be getting one.

Rock on sister.

I always feel awful when one of our dogs or cats has to wear the cone. One of our cats took a tumble down a flight of stairs wearing one of those. He was fine.
