Smudge went to the ophthalmologist!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
She has "trichiasis" which is just misdirected eyelashes - they're pointing toward her eyeballs and causing irritation... The ophthalmologist has offered to do the surgery for free, the shelter just has to pay the anaesthesia fees, which won't be much. They don't want to do the surgery until she's 16 weeks old, which is about 3 weeks away still, so she can stay with us until we get back from Australia (the kitties are staying at our house, and our neighbours are feeding them), and she'll definitely get spayed then as well.

Yayyyy!!!!!! Then we can adopt her and she'll have her forever home

I'm soooooo relieved!!!! So the poor thing will still need 2 surgeries, but it's not as bad as they thought, and we just need to pay the adoption fee!

Thats great news. At least it wasnt anything to serios. Thats great that the vet would do it for just the anaesthesia fees.

YAY!!!! What a generous offer from the opthamologist! to that whole practice! And it must really be a financial load off your mind for them to do that for her too. Sounds like they fell for her too.
