Puppy has arrived!!!!
OK, so it's been a week already, but damn a lot happened in one week!!!!
OK, first thing was naming him.......we decided on Bim, short for Bimini. Kennel name Basileas In Motion. Rich calls him Bimini Cricket!!! We ADORE him!!!!! he is the most perfect puppy!!! Almost housebroken, good with he other dogs - Spur doesn't really like him much. He is super sweet and cuddly, we just can't believe how good he is. Sleeps in his crate all night!! Perfect!
So, Monday evening on our walk he does zoomies through the tall grass and pokes his eye with a stiff blade of grass. It lodges in his cornea!!!!! We head to the ER who sends us to another ER where they take a photo to send to the ophthalmologist. HUH????? Why the first ER vet couldn't do that is beyond me!!!! Slightly....OK quite pissed about that. The ophthalmologist says it would be best to wait the night with antibiotic drops and return in the morning for a $2-3000 surgery. HUH???? First, I sure would like to see that vet manual saying its best to wait a night before removing a foreign body????? WTF!!!!!
Well, that's what we have to do, but we go the next morning to a local ophthalmologist and she uses sedation and removes it!!! Geesus, that should have been done the night before. Now he might possibly have a permanent scar!!! Won't affect his vision much, but damn am I pissed!!! If you don't want to handle emergencies just don't answer the phone!!!! Asshole vet!!!!
he is still getting drops and we will see, maybe it will eventually clear up as he ages.
