bubba keeps trying to rub his eyes.....can't blame him and of course, the collar prevents this.

however, he must have done something in one of his bubba style frantic frenetic movements, because now his right eye doesn't want to open all the way, as if it's irritated.

we called the specialist who is not taking calls this weekend...

remind me never to have a surgery done on a friday...

has anyone experienced this?

it almost seems like he got a hair in his eye and it irritated it. the lower lid looks a little swollen.

no discharge, no blood..and the stitches look intact.

any advice or insight?

I'm confused-- his eyes are stitched but they're open?

the stitches are on the lower eyelid...from the center toward his nose...and they are intact.

the eye is not stitched shut....but there are stitches where she reshaped his lower lid.

so she reshaped his eyelid...now he's got reddened conjunctiva and he's having trouble opening that eye and i sense some swelling in the lower lid, since his right eye now appears to be smaller...but there is no discharge, no blood...

he is currently on gentak, which is genamicin ointment,,and cephalexin, orally....another antibiotic.

Wicket had a reaction to his stitches (they were latex I think) and had to have them redone-- they were red and swollen around the stitches.  Definitely worth mentioning to your vet. I wish I had more expertise on the surgery he had done, but I'd be worried with any redness/swelling.

so wait, your dog had major surgery on friday, so involved that he could lose his sight should complications arise, and your surgeon 'isn't taking calls'? i'm sorry, and excuse the language but who the hell does he think he is? i really hope you havent paid your bill yet cuz if he is refusing after care emergency calls then i would not further his career by paying him. he must really hate his job to not care about the animals he works on. in the human world there is no 'refusing calls' on the weekend and even if the doc is unavailable to answer calls there is ALWAYS a colleague ready to take calls. trust me, my mom is a nurse practitioner and is often stuck with the on call pager/phone and we've gotten plenty of 3am calls. you already know eye issues with pugs are not the 'wait and see' type of condition and unfortunately i have no advice. i just wanted to express my outrage and i'm sure you feel the same combined with terror because you dont know if somethings gone awry

She's right I think-- I have my vet's cell number and he is available any time.  Now you're going to pay for it if you have to wake him up at 3 am on Sunday morning and have him drive into town to give your dog an IV for whatever, but he'll do it willingly and be cheerful about it.  You'll just have to pay the emergency fee.

Specialists have a tendency to be more full of their own importance I think.  Thank God it's Monday morning, I hope everything is ok-- I would definitely give him an earful for leaving you all weekend with no way to reach him.

this vet is supposed to be top notch....and i'm not defending her in the least.

however....not much i can do on a sunday night when, if anything is going to go wrong, it will.

i'm pretty pissed off myself....believe me...especially since we were told to call and she would be paged. she does have an answering service...like big deal.

i'm pretty sure in the midst of him trying to get the collar off, he irritated the eye....the conjunctiva (that pink stuff below the bottom eye lid was red).

no, the stitches are not inflamed...actually they look pretty good..

i think he managed to rub his eye...

as to the vet? well...for now, i'm kind of stuck with her. and, i will see it through, since there are so few eye specialists around here....

hopefully, he will never ever have another eye surgery and i can put this behind me....since all i could do last night was think about his eye falling out or something equally as gory....

he is a fast little bugger...and he wants that cone off....but, so sad, too bad, baby...he can't...

i am hand feeding him..and he's like a little cannibal. i wouldn't be surprised if he got a little food in his eye....we're trying to be careful....

i had just wondered if anyone else went through this....

it's always something....
