    tess had her op today, it went well she also got a dental as she was doing so well and they were green.

    she doesnt appear to be in pain as she has been running round the house with a satalite dish on her head, her inner (third) eyelid is sewn shut so the eye itself can heal.
    so she looks like a zombie or something as her bottom eyelid is kind of turned out so all pink is visible.

    her vision was poor at the best of times now with one eye closed and a elizabethian collar on its pretty much zero and we have spent the arvo watching her find her way around the house. bumping into everything
    she is trying to scratch her eye on anything she can including the corner of the coffee table.

    im so relieved that everything went well i cant believe how acitve she is.

    Ok lol right now Tessa is goin nuts. Trying to scratch her eye. She had the coller thing on her head but she is like diving head first into things like blankets and clothes but she has moved up to the corner of coffee table and other furniture.

    Her eye is really fragile right now and if she scratches the inner eyelid that's exposed they may not b able to repair it. She is goin back to the vet in the morning for a check up.
    She is panting cos she is so worked up and OH is getting annoyed cos he gotta get up at 530 lol.

    I've got to keep her calm and quiet. Grrr

    Wish she had a sedative ( for us both )

    Great to hear she came through the surgery well. I hope the eye heals quickly for her so she can have the collar removed. Give her a hug for me.

    Tessa is at the vet at the moment bad news from them tho. The eye has not healed under the flap that has been sewn shut for the past week they said it is no where near healed.

    They have redone it and cleaned it and think that it will still b a few weeks.

    I'm devistTed I know if it wont heal she will prob have to have it removed completely.

    My family don't understand and if one more of them say why bother she is nearly 16 I'm gonna go crazy even saying it in a nice way is still pissing me off like u wouldn't believe.

    She is healthy for a dog of her age and I'm not gonna have her PTS cos of a bloody eye ulcer seriously it's a treatable condition. I'm not mAde of money but If my dog of 16 years doesn't deserve a bit of medical treatment for all that she has done/ been there for me. God help my parents lol when I'm their med power of attorney when there old

    I am sorry you are doing it tough with Tessa.......Did she do some damage whn she poked it on the table? Sometimes you have to be a little patient and sometimes it takes a little longer. Stick with it if she is happy and healthy. And remember even if she has to have her eye removed, she can still be a happy dog. I am sorry you are not getting Family support.....But we are thinking of you both. Get well soon Tessa

    I really hope things start to heal- have you considered giving her vit C with her meal? This can help with tissue healing. Roscoe gets a slow release 1000mg human tablet (blackmores) every now and then if injured.

    Roscoe has had his L eye removed. It is sewn over so has fur growing over the space with a scar down the middle. When he blinks the area "twitches" so the reflex/muscles there are still active.
    He has a very full and happy life. The only thing it effects are his depth perception. He is hopeless at judging distance if jumping from one thing to another. He can also get a surprise when out walking and a dog approaches on his blind side., it very suddenly appears in his face!

    All the best to you both. If her quality of life is still good it sounds well worth the investment. If her quality of life will be very difficult its a hard decision to make.

    Thanks guys. Na she didn't hurt it on the table, she is just taking alot longer to heal than they expected. Only about 1/4 ofwhat they hoped for.

    I will give some vitamins a go she is goin back to the vet tonight for a check up and I'll go through all our options

    She has got the hang of the collar thingy and uses it like a blind person and their cane. But the advantage of hers is she can scoop any food straight up into her mouth.
