Aby-a-Day – 10 Juni: Another trip to Min Veterinär (Thursday Things)

If you are a regular follower, you know the story behind Angel’s eye. You may also remember we took Angel to Angell Hospital to see an Dr. Biros, an opthalmology specialist.

Back then she was diagnosed with open chronic inactive keratitis with corneal scarring, a result of her early Feline Herpesvirus that took her left eye as a kitten.

So, this morning Angel and I took the long bus ride to Min Veterinär.

“Wait, what? I was just here yesterday!”

She waited in her carrier for the doctor and her assistant to come in.

First they put some drops in her eye to dilate her pupil.

Then the lights were dimmed.

And the doctor shone a light into Angel’s eye to examine the cornea.

Then we decided to check her blood to see if there was anything systemic going on.

First, of course, we had to shave her leg.

Tomorrow is her 14th birthday, and I don’t think she’s ever had her blood tested. Even without any eye problems, it’s a good idea to see if there’s anything else we need to worry about.

And then we were done.

She was a very good patient.

Then, we had to wait for the bus back home.

We had just missed one bus, so we had a 14 minute wait for the next one. I let Angel out to get some air.

She was good, and went back into her carrier when she was finished exploring (not that there’s much to explore at that bus stop).

When we got off the bus at home, I let her out again. She walked part of the way…

…and rode part of the way.

After two trips to the vet in two days, we were both happy to get home.

Apparently, her previous open chronic inactive keratitis has been activated. The doctor prescribed Dexmethasone drops, so hopefully that will deactivate her keratitis.
