he is so good, he came on a non work day, took his time and helped her because she needed it, he was here forever trying to find a vein somewhere in that tree trunk of spritely's leg...he finally found it so she got her injection directly into the area. while he was here i mentioned that gideons eye is swollen each morning but opens up during the day, no discharge, just this lazy half closed eye. so he had a look and low and behold, gideon has a corneal ulcer in there. i have had lot's of cats come in with corneal ulcers and you would have to be blind to miss that something is seriously wrong...apparently horses are not the same...sorry gideon, i am just not that horse smart yet. anyway, he will be treated now, and i had the vet draw off some extra blood for a geri panel, might as well get a heads up in case gideon is hiding any other secrets.
both of the horses were great little troopers and very cooperative. thx mo and melissa for helping them and the vet get thru it all.
and just in case anyone has forgotten...phoebe is a noisy, nosy, little busy body. why can't she get a bad case of laryngitis??? i won't treat it if she does either.
