You are no way a bad doggy mom.

I would not have noticed the abnormal eye either, unless it was really obvious or there was something protruding from it.

Get better soon little Chulita <3

Well, Jess...they ARE indeed pretty good at disguising their troubles....instinct to keep predators from noticing their weakness, which makes them sitting ducks. And I think they're very good at adapting to rotten situations, something we humans would do well to emulate. I just hope I can keep that in mind as I can't help but feel so sorry for her. Thanks so much.

Aw!! Sorry! ~~~vibes~~~

I don't think you are a bad owner! You can keep beating yourself up, but you are going to do right by her now that you know.

Sael...that sounds awful. Was it very obvious? Did it stick out? Chuli's surface of her eye still looks flat.
Yeah, it was pretty obvious. The eye was clouded over, red, and there were insides popping out of it

Awwww...poor dog. I wonder if it caused great pain. Well, I don't know if these drops are taking effect or not yet. She's had 4 doses so far, due for her morning one for today in a couple hours. It's 2x a day. How long do these steroid drops take to work...to reduce pressure, do you know? (if they'll work) I forgot to ask. I'm just counting down the days till next Thurs. when she gets re-checked for pressure.

Aw, poor little girl! Hope the drops work! (And I agree with everyone else, you're NOT a bad dog mom... Bad would be knowing there's a problem and ignoring it...)

Dogs do soooo well at hiding when they are not feeling well, ugh...

Good dog mommy having vet check ups to catch this sort of thing!

If things don't get better I highly recommend heading to a vet ophthalmologist. The appointment will cost you an arm and a leg but their expertise is amazing on solving eye issues.
