First, I'm calling in a personal favor for help. See, I got a buddy named Clover (that's him below, not me!), he's a GSD a lot like me. Well, his momma does A LOT of fostering, usually for doggie mom's and puppies on death row. The last foster she had, Momma, has become a foster failure and is now Clover's forever sister!
Bad news is, Momma has horrible heartworms. Boo on bugs! Momma's new mom needs funding for the heartworm treatment by Tuesday. Now I don't like to ask for money ever, but if you could, could you and your peoples visit her link, read her story and give a few green papers to help? Right now, she's only $175 shy of her goal! Clover's momma does SO MUCH for fosters that she's tight on cash for the emergency treatment momma needs. If all goes well, I'll keep you all up to date to her progress...the treatment will be hard since she's got so many bugs! Please use the power of the Paw for Momma!!!
UPDATE! All the green papers for Momma's treatment has been raised!! All $365 of it!! Apparently my eye funk has spread, cause now mom's eyes are all leaky from such great people on here and so are Clover and Momma's momma! She can't believe people that don't even know her opened there hearts and green paper holders!! I'm leaving the link up ONLY because you can read her story and see what angels foster parents are, but despite what the counter says, all the money has been raised!! God and dogs are good all the time!!
Now onto my vet visit...I got all kinds of poked and prodeded! Mom documented it with her new snazzy phone!
Waiting in my room...I think the greenery makes the room more relaxing and zen-fung-shway-ee.
I'm going to have to go through THAT door into the back?? Hey, wait, that's where they stick the thermometer up the "you know where"!!!
Dr. Vet and Blue Vet Tech Lady working on getting my tests ready....
Whew, back in the waiting room. Sorry, mom couldn't get piktures of me getting a gazillion eye drops, my eyelids peeled back and all that stuff. I did good though, mom had to keep petting me and telling me a good girl so I'd be calm...which worked. I just love hearing about how awesome I am...I am a diva after all!
So in the end, Dr. Vet thinks its follicular conjunctive-eye-tis....aka puppy pinkeye. She gave mom some drops and she wants to see me in about too weeks to make sure everything is okay. She did mention pannus to mom (a GSD eye disease) but doesn't think that's a problem. I hope not, that involves getting SHOTS IN MY EYES every few months! Oh helllll no!!
Getting the drops in my eyes wasn't too hard for mom and dad, and mom managed to get one in each eye this morning by herself. I need to get them 2-3 times a day. It sucks, but after each time I get CHEESE!! Score!! Mom said they looked less inflamed this morning, so I guess that's good.
Thanks for all the good vibes!! Let's hope it goes away!
