For those (very few) who don't know, Violet is my precious 8 year old boarder collie/boxer. She and I are a team. We both have arthritis, allergies and when one of us is upset or hurting the other has a hard time.
Yesterday I noticed her eye was slightly swollen and there was a scratch above it. I just figured that Joie, our bichon malti-poo scratched her when they were playing. Joie is going for his grooming tomorrow and Violet gets her nails clipped at the same time. I just thought it was because his (or her) nails were too long. This morning it was slightly more red and DH put some polysporin on it, but it still looked not bad. We made an appointment for her to see the vet in the afternoon when I pick Joie up. They asked if I wanted to bring her in today but I said it wasn't too bad.
Well tonight she came out to see me and the area around the eye was three times the size of the other and there was red everywhere. I tried to put poly on it but it must really hurt. The poly we use has a numbing effect, but you have to keep it on the area for a bit for it to work.
I am beside myself. I hate to see either of my furbabies hurting. And Joie knows something is wrong too.
I feel responsible for letting it go this long and now she can't get in until 4 pm tomorrow
