Mom can't remember if she blogged/shared this...but a few months back, our vet told us that I have Pigmentary Keratitis in my eyeballs. Mom and Dad give me my Tacrolimas drops and don't make a big farkakte deal about it, but Dr. Boucher (one of my regular vets) wanted me to get checked out by a Doggie Opthamologist just to be sure my treatment was working and there wasn't something else wrong.
OPTHAMOLOGIST? Aw crap....I hope I don't need GLASSES!!!!
(OMG...doesn't this remind you of Da Bugg Gooroo?)
My appointment at the VCA Specialty Clinic was this morning. Mom got me there and I met this cool dude named BOWIE (like David!)and his nice mom while I was waiting...
We noticed that Bowie had a pretty sweet looking bikini wax job, but it turned out that the poor dude had Lymphoma and he was there for a chemotherapy treatment. Bowie...if you're reading this, we hope you feel better soon!
A nice lady named Karen was my tech today!
She told me I was handsome, so of course I had to give her some sugar!
Here I am with my Eye Doctor...Dr. Budelsky!
He checked my eyes out with some of his fancy tools and asked mom some questions about me. He told mom that I definitely have PK, but doesn't think I need surgery of any kind and that we should continue to manage it with the drops we've had along with a prescription for some additional drops. Easy peasy!
Here I am with my prescription....
Mom says it looks like a MUG SHOT! HAHAHAA
I was just happy that I didn't have to read an eye chart!
Thank you Dr. Budelsky and NiceTechKaren! Mom is very relieved to know that my PK is under control for now and she's going to keep up with my drops and keep an EYE on me (hahahaa....get it....EYE? HAHAHAA!)
***Mom's note*** if some of you use regular meds for your 4 leggers, Kroger pharmacy just recently started carrying pet prescriptions too....MANY of them fall under the $4 generic program too! We lucked out with my new eyedrops today....only FOUR BUCKS at Kroger pharmacy, which meant mom had enough to stop and get me a McCheesyBurger as a reward for being a good boy for the Eye Dr. today!
