Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
Thank you everyone for your well wishes and suggestions for making the taking of antibiotics easier! I am so happy I had 2 days off following his eye surgery. Tomorrow will be the first time he will be home alone for more than 1/2 hour. He will have to negotiate the doggie door by himself for 4 hours. We just purchased a smaller cone, which should help some. The larger cone is the one he was given when he was "hairy", before his shave down. Now that is neck is so much smaller, the vet suggested going down one size, so we will try it tonight.
He is still banging into everything and everybody, but is getting better with the cone. He has figured out how to push the door open using it and how to push Ginger out of the way. Sometimes I find her just staring at him and you know she must just be wondering what he did to deserve the cone!
His eyes are healing nicely, with his left eye looking basically normal and the right eye much less swollen now. He continues to take his antibiotics (hidden in a small piece of hot dog... the only thing he seems to like) and will now sit well and let me put the ointment in his eyes, knowing a reward is coming immediately afterward.
