Our wonderful, loving dog Apple
has had some issues. She's a rescue that we've had for about 9 months. We've taken care of her seperation issue
, and figured out that pills are way easier than the squirt bottle
for medicine- but now the poor little girl seems to be getting cherry eye.
It has appeared twice, both times in the evening and dissapearing by morning, with no intervention from us. They have been pretty close together- just last night and last friday. The internet is giving us some conflicting advice- like we need to massage her face with eye drops or we need to take her in right away for surgery. Apple will be going to the vet next month for her shots and a check up, so the question really is- do we wait to talk to the vet about it until then or call him and make an emergancy appointment?
Our vet is really great, and has been very reasonable about not overcharging us (we tend to be reactionary and have brought her in for everything from clogged butt glands to stubborn fleas). I would really rather not make another appointment if it's just not a big deal.
TL;DR: Does our dog's dissapearing cherry eye warrent a vet appointment before we go in next month for shots?
