Bear seems to be healing.
He is acting like a baby though. He insists on staying on my lap or in my arms no matter what I am doing. Then he moans till he falls asleep. I don’t know if he is playing me or if he is really in pain. I been giving him his medicine on the dot. I have my alarm set for 4AM, noon and 8PM. At 8PM I give him his last pill for the night and let him fall asleep in my arms then I put him in his kennel. I feel like I have a sick baby LOL. I can’t stand to see him suffer and this is all I know to do. They gave me syringes with medicine in them to inject in his cheek but the med sheet says to hold so I think they gave it to me by accident. There is no needle on the syringes. I gave my goats shots plenty of times so if I have to inject him in the cheek I can do it…..but I won’t unless it looks like he is in dramatic pain and the doctor gives me the okay.
The Pill Pockets are working great and so far I have not had a problem giving him his pills, thanks to those things. They were $9.99 which I think is sky high BUT since I haven’t had to fight him to get him to take his pills I am grateful. If I put a pill in his food he will eat all around it. LOL I don’t know why dogs hate pills.
Also he usually eats holistic dry food but since this eye drama I had to put him on moist food. He loves it. I never seen him so excited about eating before. hmmph well moist food is expensive but not nearly as bad as his normal food so I guess I should be glad. The down side however; is you can now smell his poop a mile away. ewwwl…disgusting!! Please don’t ever let me step in it…. no I do not scoop his poop. We live in the country for goodness sake!
Good to see Bear looking better. I am sure he has been through a lot in the last week. Groomers , trip away with you , veterinarian, eye gone. Hoping he calms down soon.
When we had to give our pups pills I used canned cat food. They ate it off the spoon so fast they never found the pills. NOW I need to break them from thinking they need a scoop of cat food when I feed the kitties. LOL such babies.
That picture makes me so sad. But I am glad he is home safely and doing okay.
You mentioned the cost of pill packs… surely petsmart is going to give you all the packs you can handle? I hope??
They paid the vet bills…I paid for the aftercare stuff.
