Update: Brut's eye, our next step
We will be taking Brut to an eye specialist next week. We were in luck as this doctor only makes a trip up our way once a month and we were able to get an appointment. It will save a trip downstate which would have been a 4 hour drive and this way we will only have an hour drive (one way) to see the doc, making it convienent for everyone. Brut doesn't like riding in the car very much, but does eventually settle down some as we drive on. So it will be just long enough to calm him down so he won't be so hyper seeing this eye doctor. The whole experience will be nerve racking enough.
Our vet had a look at Brut's eye this past Wednesday and did all she could do with an anxious Brut in a muzzle. The last thing she could do was measure his eye pressure, but with the difficulty of just trying to keep Brut still so she could look in his eye with a light was about the limited of it. And I appreciated her honesty. Brut is not the easiest patient. She said the eye specialist will know how to sedate him and get a good eye reading.
This specialist is someone our vet knows well and trust, and we trust her judgement. I also received another confirmation from a friend who knows another vet, who also gave her stamp of approval. Thanks Friend! ☺
So it sounds like Brut is in the best hands possible. Now we just have to wait out this week, continue with the eye drops and hope we will find out what the problem is with Brut's eye and a solution to go with it.
Thank you so much everybody for your prayers, well wishes and good thoughts. We can not thank you enough for being part of our doggie family. Please keep them coming!
We will keep you up to date.
Thank you again.
