had a swollen eye. She went to see our regular veterinarian Dr. Booman on Tuesday for an exam (and bloodwork too). She didn't have a corneal abrasion, but instead is suffering from a flare of her chronic herpes. We think that the weather change caused just enough stress to bring it on.
She's on an antibiotic eye ointment, atropine eye drops, and antiviral eye ointment ~ quite a bit of stuff to put in her eyes several times a day! She's living in the house right now, for easier access to medicate her, which has made her quite happy ~ more treats!

We euthanized Syd last night because of acute abdominal pain that didn't respond to medication; most likely he had a tumor growing on the inside, especially since he had so many on the outside. It's much quieter in the pasture today, and Osa, his pasture mate, sure misses him too....
