Leo had a swollen left eye so his quick-thinking pet parent fashioned a cone out of a cereal box and brought him in to UrgentVet – West Orlando.
The team did a flourescein test – which is a safe dye and a blue light that helps to reveal damage or foreign bodies present in the eye. The test showed a corneal ulcer. Leo was sent home with eye antibiotics, pain medications, and a plastic e-collar.
We followed up after a few days and we’re glad to report that Leo is doing much better.
Here he is arriving at the clinic with his sibling along for moral support.
This is Tyson! He came to UrgentVet – West Orlando for vomiting AND diarrhea. The first thing we always offer for puppies that come in with these symptoms is a Parvo test.
Canine parvovirus is a contagious virus mainly affecting dogs. CPV is highly contagious and is spread from dog to dog by direct or indirect contact with their feces. Vaccines can prevent this infection, but mortality can reach 91% in untreated cases. Treatment often involves veterinary hospitalization.
Luckily for Tyson, this was not the case and we were able to treat him with some symptomatic care and a referral to follow up with his general practice veterinarian. Get well soon, Tyson!
