Misa - "Crying Eye" Plus Other Stuff
« on: September 19, 2018, 06:49:37 PM »
Misa has always had one eye that "cries."  Clear liquid.  Happens hit and miss.  Doesn't seem to bother her at all.  It drives me nuts, because it does mean something is going on with her. 
Had her tested today for food allergies.  She has a slight allergy to chicken.  Slight?  We are going to cut chicken out of her diet for a while.  Wait and see!

I actually took her to the vet because when I got home from my short trip, she had a red raw looking spot on her nose.  It looked like maybe she split her nose open.  The pink spot darkened the next day, but the spot spread out more.  Today there is a scab off to one side.  The general area looks to be a litttttle swollen.   She licks it from time to time, but wasn't obsessing licking. 

The vet (my least favorite) said it wasn't a bite or sting.  Didn't look like a cat got her.  No oozing.  His best guess... she caught it on something.  Ouch!  He gave me 4 prednisone pills for her and an antibiotic... as a safety measure.  The scabbing tells me it is healing, soooooo I'm not sure if I am going to follow through with the meds.  Just got home a bit ago, and haven't given it complete thought.   

She also got her nails trimmed today.  Had a vet tech that has TWO Street Dogs.  She understood talking to Misa only makes her more miserable.  I NEVER heard of street dogs, until Misa.  No one I talk to has either.  What are the odds that a tech and a vet (one we saw last time) BOTH have or at least know of them?  Anyway, I requested the same vet tech for Misa's next nail trimming in 4 weeks.  :)

That is great news about the vet tech!  How did Misa do at the vet and nail trim?

Keep us posted on her nose.  Her eye may be a blocked tear duct.
