I feel like I should pay a fee for the number of threads I have in the health section.

Around lunchtime today the area around Coopers eye looked puffy. I looked but couldn't see anything so assumed a bite. I gave him an anti-histamine and thought if it's still like that in the morning we would go to the vets.

Well just before he wouldn't/couldn't pick up his ball. Eventually when he did, he screamed. Rang the vet and we got there just before they closed.

The vet thinks it is an abscess behind the eye frown They are giving him an anesthetic and will check to make sure it is not a tooth (I think Coop wants to be like Rosa in all ways) but he thinks it's probably a grass seed that has traveled to his eye. So they will make a small incision at the joint of the mouth and see.

He will stay there overnight frown

Any good thoughts please send his way. My poor boy just cannot catch a break teary

Just had a phone call from the vet, he has a drain inserted through the back of his mouth into the back of his eye and they will leave that in until morning.

He said his teeth are fine and there is no 'classic' punture wound in his mouth from a grass seed etc.

He thinks it is a retrobulbar abscess most likely due to bacteria in his blood stream. Apparently the blood flow behind the eye is much slower.

Hopefully by morning he will look and feel better otherwise they will do further tests (xrays etc).

I should have said when he examined him, as soon as he tried to open his mouth, Cooper screamed and hid under the exam table.

Oh, Bianca! hugging Poor, sweet Coopie! You did the best thing to get him in there right away. I'm so glad that Cooper has you for an owner, ready to help him in a moment's notice. May this be a minor issue, self-limiting, and very quickly resolved. Please give your handsome, dear black boy extra snuggles from me!

Aww Bianca, you have my best wishes and crossedfingers that Cooper is soon on the mend - so many procedures for such a young dog and for you too! I echo Patti - he is so lucky to have you as an owner.
