Health Conditions.

I was supposed to go to the vet to extract my decayed teeth but there was a little bad news on my eyes condition.

I had this 'dry' eyes problem eversince i was a baby. Now 7 years later, me eyes is getting worse. The tears duct has stopped producing tears. And tears is essential to prevent the eyes from drying. So far the vet advised me to use the hooman's contact lens solution to keep my eyes wet. But now i have to use this eye oil and an eye ointment every day. It is like a long term and forever thing.

If i dont, this will happen. My eyes will just become drier and if it does gets worse, my eye balls can jus pop out...sigh. This small bottle of oil is S$44 and the ointment is S$8 and it will last me a month only. Mama says that she is going to try out this thing and if it really good for me, she told me that it is alright to spend this kind of money every month. (hehe, she loves me)

Now, back to my teeth. 2 teeth were extracted.

After the teeth scaling, my teeth is clean and free of plague. On the whole, the vet Uncle Simon said that i am still very healthy, my body is still fit and my bones are still strong. And did i mention that i weigh wonder Mama is complaining that i am heavy whenever she carried me.

So yesterday, my bill came up to S$297 and i got these medication.

Mama just hope that everything goes well for me especially my eyes condition. We just see how it goes. But she is pretty upset and worried about my situation. But i am not the least worried cos Mama says that she will love me and take care of me even if i go totally blind one day.

oh boy boy,

you know, the other day i wanted to ask if you have any eyes problem like jay coz i can see your eyes are quite blurry unlike baby. and now you have cleared that up.

what about your teeth? i wanna know if your mom lets you chew on anything like oxtail or bone so you can clean your teeth?

last october, my hooman went to bangkok and saw this shihzooo with very very bad teeth. but that shihzoo is already 12 years old. mom was worried if my teeth will ever be like that so she have the intention of brushing me. then she decides to let me chew on greenies or bones or oxtail so i will enjoy my "brushing" time more.

what about baby? does she have any dental problem?

ah boy, i'm sorry to hear about your eyes. you know what, my friend fanny has exactly the same kind of problem. no tear production leading to dry eyes, and then leading to failure of eyesight. may i know how much you can see now? anyway, fanny goes to dr heng yileng, who's famous for eyes. she has been given eye drops and i will keep a lookout to see if her condition improves. if it does, you can try dr heng too to see what she can do about it :)

Hey Boy,
Our cousin Mitzi the Shih Tzu, her vet has told her some very good tips. Shih Tzu's have very soft teeth. So it is best NOT to chew on very hard things or your teeth can fall out. She is 7 and has lost some teeth already. Brushing your teeth and eating a dry kibble is about the best thing you can do for your teeth. Of course having bad teeth pulled out is very good too. If not, you can get bad infections in your whole body. Mitzi doesn't have dry eyes, but does have some kind of eye problem that flairs every once in a while. There is some ointment that has to be put onto her eyes when they act up. Oh yeah, besides the 3 seizures that she just had, she has had back trouble 2 times this past year. So be sure to be careful if you go up and down any stairs.
Luv & Wirey Hugs

PS We would love you even if you were blind. Our Mama has an eyeless Ranchu Fancy Goldfish and he swims around and eats with no problems. Mama rescued him from a fish store.
