Mugsy Update

2 Sept

Spoke to Mom today and Mugsy came home yesterday and is doing much better. The pressure in his eye is down to 10 (I think Mom said 15 is the breakpoint for being too high) He is on a lot of medication; Drops, gels, pills - not to mention doggy Tylenol for the pain. My poor baby!

At least 'Grandma' is taking very good care of him. She has a good schedule of his meds and is giving him lots of attention. (she adores him - how can you not?! He is such a good dog) He is eating and drinking well again and seems happy to be home and in less pain. The vet said he could have permanent damage in his vision in that eye, but they just need to monitor him to see how he does. Most dogs can get around just fine using their other senses, so even if he is blind in the one eye, we wouldn't really notice. (as long as he remembers his 'Mommy' I dont care)

It is very likely the same thing will happen in his other eye. It could be next week, next month or next year. But the vet told Mom what to look for now, so they might be able to catch it earlier. I am thinking good thoughts and staying positive! Thanks to everyone who sent their good wishes for him ((hugs))
