I know some people think we’re crazy, because we love our 3 dogs so much! But they honestly are loved as much as our 2 daughters are! So today was the day that we took our 9-year-old Yorkie Elvis to the ‘doggie ophthalmologist‘ and I’m not gonna lie when I tell you, we knew this was not going to be an inexpensive visit!. Call us crazy, but we were willing to give up whatever we had to in order to get our little buddy the best treatment in his already blind eye! You see, our poor little Elvis was attacked by a neighbor’s pit bull back in 2006, which left him blind in this one eye, which now has even more issues. Have you too, spent a small fortune on your pets medical care?
I was so afraid that Elvis was going to have to have his eye removed. We took him to our regular vet a few weeks ago, and he gave us eye drops and said if it did not get better, we would have to take him to this specialist, a ‘doggie ophthalmologist.’ The thought of his eye being removed was so horrible to me, I was hoping and praying that it would get better, but sadly it did not.
The good news is that Elvis does not have to have his eye removed! The bad news is that he somehow injured that already blind eye, and the injury was not healing. They performed a procedure today, and said there is 75-80% chance that it will now heal and be fine in 3-4 weeks! We are so grateful, and we can easily go without eating out, and make other personal sacrifices to afford today’s vet bill, which was not cheap!
Have you sacrificed things to pay for your dog or cats medical bills?
