Vet Visit

1 Feb

Our fur baby Harry had a trip to the Doc today.  It appears he spent the day yesterday licking his paw.

While at there we asked for his eye sight to be tested as we have noticed a sharp decline in the last 3 months.

Verdict?

Paw – Sedation and exploration of his paw didn’t find any foreign bodies.  Antibiotics should help it heal and lets check in a week.

Eye Sight – A bit more complicated.  It seems that his problems are possibly the result of a brain injury rather than an eye sight issue.  It may be something called hemi-inattention and while a CT might resolve questions it is unlikely to help find a cure.  What I can mostly find about this is in relation to people after a stroke.  So for now, we have to watch for any seizures and keep an eye on how he reacts in normal daily life.

Yes, our dog could need a cat scan, this potential for humour has not been lost on us.  And it was interesting to watch him as he recovered from the sedation, he was tripping.
