Our First Scare

October 2, 2020

Well, we had our first big scare this week. Devo’s cancer is affecting her eyes, and in the middle of the night something must have changed. She was very uncomfortable — pacing, eyes squinted shut, obviously hurting. A small dose of tramadol finally helped her rest, but the next day she didn’t want to eat and hid under the stairs all day. She looked just awful, and I wondered if that might be it for her… But the smell of dinner and some warm clam broth brought her around to our happy surprise.

The vet found pressure in her eye and glaucoma. Also low platelets after her doxyrubicyn 7 days ago, so oral prednisone now. And CBD treats. She’s not back to where she was before the scare, but she went to the beach yesterday and still wants to be here with us.

    Well, from that picture, Devo certainly seems to be enjoying herself!

    From what I understand. wye pain from glaucoma or any other pressure. is like a horrible migraine headache in humans. Understanding that can certainly explain why she’s not back to “normal”
    I hope the drops can finish the pain and take the pressure down.

    Actually, can’t remember if she’s on eye drops or not. You may want to get an Opthomologist Vet to take a look. When one of my dogs had pressure from Glaucoma, eye drops were a must in reducing the pressure pain. Anyway, just throwing that out there.

    So glad she got her appetite back and seems to be feeling better. Uou are giving her such exquisite care♥️
