Rough Night, Short Blog

I screwed up, big time, which resulted in a very rough evening and resulting morning. Because Napoleon is a yorkie, he needs his eyes cleaned regularly from tear stains. I was cleaning his little puppy eyes and realized that a little patch of his hair/skin near his eye came off. I freaked, called the vet, freaked some more, then slept restlessly thinking of how I injured my dog and and going to a specific corner of hell for people who abuse animals. My stomach also ached, preventing me from sleeping more than a handful of hours.

Except the vet wasn't nearly as concerned about it as I was. In fact, she didn't even think I needed to bring him in for it. But mommy guilt is a powerful thing. I roused early today and took him to the vet at 7 a.m., as soon as they opened. The vet cleaned his eye and added some ointment, then sent me on my way with more ointment. Mommy guilt sort of assuaged.

Napoleon is extra clingy tonight, so I'm off to make nice so he won't plot my death in revenge.

Poor puppy!

I totally understand your freak-out, though. When we had dogs I was at the vet for all kinds of things, most of which turned out to be nothing.

I'm happy he's okay! I would have freaked out too. I am always so worried about our cat. :) Pets are family! It's natural to worry :)

Omg the same thing is happening to my baby chase (he's a yorkie as well) what type of cream was it?

I'm glad I'm not the only one! It was like neosporin or a triple antibacterial cream .. I think it was called triple bactine?
