Total Basset Case: Fridays with Floyd: Eye Lift

Apr 20, 2012

Fridays with Floyd: Eye Lift

Mr. Floyd has been having some issues with his eyes.
They have been super itching and gunky.
After many, many trips to the vet and lots of benadryl,
 it has been determined that he basically needs a puppy eye lift. 
Plastic surgery. For our dog.

Floyd has entropion,
which basically means that his bottom eye lids roll into his eye balls.
The vet said he probably feels like he constantly has an eyelash in his eye.
Poor, poor Floyd.
 We hate that he has been so miserable 
and are so happy that he is going to get better
but
I am a nervous wreck!
There is a large chance that I will be bawling when I drop him off next week.

And he has to wear a cone for 2 weeks after.
That is NOT going to go over well with him.

Thankfully, there are some other options besides the normal huge, plastic cone.
We found these on Amazon that do not seem to be as intense as the plastic.
Has anyone had any luck with any cones like these?

 and then there is this one...
I'm sorry but this just looks like someone stuck a pool float on that poor doggies neck.

The surgery is next week, I will keep you guys updated on how he is doing!

Happy weekend, friends!
Hope it's great!

P.s. we are so close to 200.
The giveaway may or may not have something to do with this...

One of our pooches had entropion. I just want to assure you that it's NO BIG DEAL. Of course, it's easier to feel confident about the outcome when the vet is your husband, but I'm sure Floyd will be fine! Afterwards, you can gaze into those soulful eyes with nothing to distract you.

Aww. Poor Floyd. :( We used a cone similar to the first one when we had Georgia spayed, and she didn't seem to mind it at all. Good luck to both you and Floyd!
