pet insurance(general)

I have a general pet question, asking for my son.  Has anyone had pet insurance-is it worth it, do they pay, etc. Any specific co. stand out? I missed the dog flu on the news, friend called to let me…Continue

"Thank you, Jane!! I wasn't sure if people posted lost corgis, but a smaller area like ours.  Just checked and he's still on Iowa City Craigslist under "lost"-his pic, too, although he was taken to the shelter."

Found-Corgi

This is maybe a long shot but there was a loose Corgi adult male in SE Iowa City-looks like a Pembroke by the pic and quite a bit of black-he was turned into ICACC for scanning and to find the owner.  BTW-he is fine-just needs his parents. Contact ICACC if he's yours or you know who he belongs to.See More

Carol replied to sarahng88's discussion Pembroke Corgi? or mixed?
"Some claim to have a corgi and they're not-volunteering at the shelter, we get lots (even from other shelters) of "corgis"  Just look for corgi on Petfinder-a while back-like 1000 corgis-maybe<20 and maybe 5-6 that looked…"

Bladder polyps

Has anyone ever had to deal with bladder polyps?  First Zoey was being treated for a UTI, then when the meds they kept prescribing didn't work, they Xrayed her and found bladder stones-which it seems every dog in our neighborhood has! The vet wanted to rule out a tumor, so did an ultrasound, which is when he discovered the bladder polyps.  He has only seen a couple cases in his entire career (which has been several decades), so right now we're monitoring to see if they grow/multiple.  She is…See More

Speedboats?

"I can relate to that one! Chewey is obsessed with boats... Which is very challenging because we spend just about every weekend from April-October waterskiing..."

Another eye question

Posted on March 30, 2015 at 6:27pm 24 Comments

I just witnessed her 5th eye injury-she was chasing a rabbit, hit a pile of cement my neighbor dumped over here and won't move and flew over the fence.  I heard a yelp, not sure if it was her or the rabbit. She thought the rabbit was in the tree and kept circling the tree and barking over there.  These are the kind of neighbors who'd cause trouble if they caught her over there, so I finally got her back here and she was acting a little "off" and sure enough a couple hours later, her eye was…

chronic eye trauma

Posted on March 21, 2015 at 10:29pm 19 Comments

I am hoping someone can help-I have had my 5 yr old girl for not yet 5 months.  She has had 4 eye injuries, the last 3 requiring a cone and pain meds.  The first 3, she saw the vet that's in with my regular vet and was treated for eye punctures from apparently running into things (chasing rabbits)  Her eyes were stained and the vet showed me the injuries.  This last Sunday, she woke up, couldn't get one eye open and the other barely, so ended up at the emergency clinic, which is fairly new…

BTW they come with replaceable lenses -- and they do get scratched, even though I keep telling them to be careful with their glasses.  They probably have clear lenses available.

Might be worth a try to protect her eyes until they heal.

Have they checked her eyeblink reflexes?

Email info@doggles.com.  Our Doggles are the size with 4 vent holes on each side.  I think that's medium; not sure though.  No, they do not keep them on reliably.  They make great photo props, and enable Al & Gwynnie's waking fantasy of being LAPD police dogs, but they take them off first chance they get.

YMMV.  I do believe the military uses them for Military Working Dogs.

I've worried about their eyes in bright summer snow and try to keep the Doggles on.  I have to keep them in front of me, and I tie bright survey tape on the Doggles to help me find them if they rub them off.  We're seldom above 6000', and the UV doesn't get horrible until you're considerably higher than that.

It seems really odd.  Animals are automatically protective of their eyes.  Could there be some neurologic thing inhibiting her eyeblinking?  If so, there ought to be some info about it.  I'd search about for 2nd, 3rd, 4th opinions.

I have a pal who's very protective of his one good eye.  He keeps an eye ointment handy -- it's basically an opthalmic-grade formulation of the ordinary Neosporin triple antibiotic (Neomycin, polymixin, bacitracin).  If bacterial inflammation is involved, that might help.  Don't hesitate to use Neosporin (at least on yourself) I use it all the time for superficial wounds on myself -- I suppose it might be harmful to dogs, but I'd be surprised.  [I do know that Ibuprofen should not be given to dogs.]

I work with laboratory mice -- who get better medical care than most humans -- and sometimes the vets notice painful ulcerated corneas and apply an ointment -- do I recall aright?  It might be Ibuprofen? -- but it might be OK to apply Ibuprofen topically to a dog -- or some other antiinflammatory (NSAID, Non-Steroidal Anti-inflammatory Drug).

Thank you Carol.  You may want to know that homeopathic products do not expire. The FDA requires an expiration date, but you can disregard it.  It is however important not to contaminate the dropper by touching the eye. The dropper is made to dispense one drop, so it's easy to use.

Welcome Carol, what is her name?

Hi Carol,

Welcome to the site.  Your girl is so pretty.  I am so sorry that she is having such serious eye problems.  I don't really know much about eye problems but think you have gotten some good comments.  Like you and others have said, it is peculiar to have allergic eye problems with out having other parts of the body involved.  

She looks like such a sweet girl.  I hope you can find some clarification for what is going on.  Sorry, I missed you on chat a while go but I was off and didn't close the website.

Lois
