Nikki's V-E-T Adventure

Hi everydoggie and GG,

It's Nikki blogging here,

Guess what? I had to go to the V-E-T two times in the last week! Not good! . I guess Momma noticed about 2 weeks ago that my right eye was tearing alot and I was rubbing it. I was closing it alot too. I would only look through my left eye and walk around with my right eye closed. I tried to tell her I was winking, but she wouldn't believe me.

So off we went to the V-E-T. Although I like them, it had only been a couple of months since I had been there. That was when they cleaned my teethies and stole 4 of them! So I was being really careful not to let them near my teethies, but they didn't even try to take more teethies. Instead they pinned me down, and MUZZLED me! :0 Oh My Dog !! Can you imagine??? And Momma told them to do that!!! Bad Mommma!!!!! Bad Bad Mommma !!!!
Well, Momma knows that if I get hurt or think I am getting hurt that I will protect myself with a nip or a bite. So I guess they thought it was for the best. Then they put a bunch of flourescent green dye in my eye, shut off the lights and brought in a special light to look for ulcers (scratches) on my eye. Well sure enough, one area lit up and it showed that I had an ulcer on my eye.
They think that maybe Buddy scratched me when we were wrestling or possibly I scratched it when I was running my face along the ground trying to get the EVIL HALTI off. I personally think it happened because of the EVIL HALTI and I don't think I should have to wear it anymore!!
Since then I've had to get drops and ointment put in my eye 3 times a day. Yuck! Momma has to bundle me all up and lie me on my side so I don't struggle and then she puts the drops in. I do my best to get away from the drops and ointment each time. ;)
And I had to wear a cone sometimes at home too. I kept running into the walls and so then I was afraid to move and just sat in one spot all the time and Momma kept calling me "Nikki The Conehead" and laughing at me.
I had to go back after 5 days and get the flourescent test done again. This time they only had to hold me down and didn't have to muzzle me as my eye wasn't as sore. And guess what? It's all better. I still have to get drops and ointment once a day, but I don't have to be a "conehead" anymore!
