Ouchie

Ginger got stung by something yesterday and came hauling butt squealing like a pig the whole way from the back of our yard.  At first I checked her body over, because usually with her poor vision she will step on a wasp on accident, but I could not find a stinger so I put her down and she seemed fine.  Then about 5 minutes later while I was on the phone with my sister-n-law I noticed this and about freaked out.

Since this is her only eye I get very nervous if anything happens to it … she occasionally runs into trees going full speed due to her vision and I have major freak outs about that as well.. I called the Emergency Vet and they told me to give her children’s benadryl and just wait and see.  I also tried to put a cool rag on it, but she was having no part of that.

At first she was following me everywhere, but once the meds kicked in she was a little sleepy and decided it was time for a siesta.

By 9 or so it had gone down quite a bit, but was still puffy and really swollen under the lower lid which made me nervous. Hubs of course said she would be fine.

Hubs gave her more meds at 11 and this morning it looks to be fine, still a touch puffy, but not like yesterday.  Due to the swelling yesterday I could not see where she had been stung, but today I can see it was on her lower eye lid, so you know that had to hurt.

I am so glad all she needed was benadryl and some rest, those vet bills for her eye can be a bit pricey…but for Ginger I would do anything☺.

(Her eye is always cloudy from her accident …It's all about the Dog.....)
