I love our ophthalmologist so much. He is wonderful to work with and very, very knowledgeable. We started seeing him when Bailey tested affected for PRA. She has seen him almost every year since then.

I just bring the gang in for routine eye exams and it's only $35. Definitely worth it.

Went to the vet this morning. He still had blood in his urine. They did xrays and an ultrasound and couldn't find anything. Vet thinks it could be an infection that didn't show on the UA, that the antibiotics he is on is clearing up (there was less blood than his first UA). Sigh! My medical mystery dog <3. Going to repeat the UA when he finishes his antibiotics and if there is still blood, then off we go to a specialist.

So, the xrays showed some other problems in his body, and to put it lightly he has the back of a byb dachshund. He has degenerative disc disease, spondylosis, and a sort of curvature of the spine. No extreme exercise for him anymore, no 'forced' jumping. My dogs are getting older .
