Francesca's Sore Eye

Posted by Francesca

I must have done something to irritate my eye because it’s all sore and runny.  The doctor gave me some eye drops, but they don’t seem to be helping the situation.  I think I need a different medication.

Hi Franny!  What are you doing?  You look like you're falling asleep sitting up!  Open your eyes!  It's a beautiful day!

Wait, are we having a squinty eye contest?

Sharkey, I'm growing concerned about my eye.  It's still sore and very sensitive to light!

Will you take a look at my eye inside out of the sunlight?

Let me see, Franny!  Oh dear, I don't think it's looking any better.  Have you been taking your eye drops?

Yes, Sharkey, I've been very diligent.

Although, it can be very difficult to give a dog eye drops!  When a dog is injured, his or her instinct is to try and hide it.

We don't want to let the rest of the pack know that we're hurt.  We want to keep on moving and not be a burden to anyone!

Therefore, it's important to watch dogs carefully if you suspect they may be injured.  We can be so stubborn, especially if we think it's going to stop us from doing something we enjoy!

All right, Susie.  Sharkey and I are all set in the car.  Please take me back to the vet!  My eye really hurts.

  • Hello Ladies,
    You are both absolutely correct in getting to the doctor's ASAP. Don't mess around with your eyes. I hope it is something as simple as allergies. The visit results should be in tomorrow I hope. Maybe you got pink eye from one of those little kids at Easter. Sharkey, please see that Francesca gets a good "cc" day after her return from the doctor's office. Rested alot yesterday. Mom even fell asleep with me for a bit. Have a great Tuesday all.
    Love & licks,
    Warrior Prince Basil

  • Good morning Francesca,
    Ahhhhhhhhh, you poor thing. You look so sad in your pictures. What happened to your eye? Did you brush by some sticks that may have gotten in it? Is it allergies? Maybe not cause it is only one eye. You may need a stronger medication than what was prescribed. Maybe you have to go to an opthamologist. Tell Sharkey or GK to hold a nice warm compress on your eye. It won't take the problem away but it will make you feel better. Good luck at the vet and let us know what is wrong with your eye.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Francesca, get well! Maybe you should wear protective goggles when you go outside. Please feel better soon!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Oh no, eye problems can really be bad. You should be taking care of your eye problem and right away. It’s a good thing to be going back to your Doctor. Chow Chows often have eye problems. I have a slight problem with my eyes which makes them water almost all the time. It looks like I have been crying most of the time. My Vet says that my eyes are clear and sharp. I know that they are good; I can see things from afar. I can also see things from a-car, a-truck, a-boat, a-bus; I think you can see the joke by now. I’m laughing right now. Speaking of naps, think I’ll have one.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Poooor baby Franchesca...you know in photo #1 it looks like Sharkey also has an eye that is a bit swollen... :-(
    When Kitty gets a swollen eye I always take a warm wet wash cloth and put it on her eye, it seems to work, if not I go to the Vet with her.
    I sure hope Franny your eyes will feel better, maybe you have an allergy?
    Hey Warrior Prince Basil, hope all is well today! :-)

    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • Oh Franny, Gran and I have tears in our eyes after reading todays blog. Especially after viewing you in picture # 9. Poor girl, you looked so uncomfortable. Please post asap and let us know the findings after your return visit to the Vet. Still sunny but very cool here. The March and early April heat waves spoiled us.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K.+ Glue Squad, OH NO! Francesca, my beautiful girl friend, you look so sad and painful in today's photos and now I feel sad all about your pain in that eye! What happened? Glad that Susie is taking you back to the vet and am anxious to hear what's wrong and hope you feel better real soon! Your photos make me cry and I am praying that you feel better real soon! I know that Sharkey and GK will do whatever they can to help you! Sure hope all of our buddies are doing well today and have a great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Oh, my dearest Frannie!
    You look so sad. Hope your doctor has a different medicine to help. I know it's really hard to be still, even humans can have a hard time with eyedrops. I like everybody's suggestion to have a warm,moist cloth. Can you sit in someone's lap for a while and take in a little extra lovin'? Sure hope so.
    Hello to all my pals. Hope your day is going smooth.
    Til tomorrow.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Ohhh no Frannypants you look so sad and uncomfortable. I wish I could give you a big hug to make you feel better. Sharkey you're doing a great job taking care of your sister. G.K. I know that you'll do your little brother part too getting Franny whatever she needs to feel better. I hope the vet visit goes well. Hope everyone else is having a lovely day. :smile:

  • Wow poor Francesca!! We are so glad you are going right to the vet to get your eyes examined again. They look really sore. Hope you feel better soon!
    Warrior Prince Basil hope you enjoy another comfort and cuddle day. Cool here and very windy, I don't like the rain either. Maybe Frannie has seasonal allergies like me. We of frenchie ancestry are very sensitive.. ha, ha. Cora Belle, you would have been proud, I barked so loud at the fed ex guy today!!
    Hugs to Prince Basil, Poco, Dudley, Nicky and Kris. Purrs to Kitty who sounds very adventurous. Abby alias Sneezy the frenchie pug (I look like Sharkey with ears that fold down.)

  • ..thank goodness, you are off to the vet..sure you have a really good one and you will be seeing clearly in no time..none the less i am worried about you my little friend..take care and let us know what the outcome is soon..love, Cora-Belle

  • Oh dear I take a few days off from viewing the blog and I come back to see Frannie girl with eye problems.

    Poor thing!

    Maybe an allergy to something blooming in the yard?

    I agree, seek the vets advice.

    "Eye" care about you! :)
