UPDATE: Mr. Jack is now home with his wonderful foster mama!
He is on two types of pain meds – Metacam and Gabapentin (which can also cause a bit of sedation) plus antibiotics – Clavaseptin. The Metacam will also help with inflammation.

Per a previous post, Mr. Jack’s foster reached out last Sunday to say that they had noted his left eye was slightly off on Saturday.
I was concerned re: possible uveitis, and an appointment was made for him to be seen on Monday.
Per the Vet that saw him, his pressures were higher than they would expect for uveitis, and diagnosed with glaucoma. It was 31.
Per a previous post, this was very distressing to read as with each of The Three’s Company pups, their eyes have been checked three times.
Jack’s eyes were even checked prior to his neuter on the 16th of August. They were always given a thumbs up, for if there were any issues, we would have had them removed at the time the Aussies were altered.
So this was so shocking to hear that less than a week after his neuter, he had an eye issue.
I was concerned re: secondary glaucoma due to injury as he was very dysphoric when he woke up post-op from his neuter, yet, it was his tongue/muzzle that took a bump, not his eye on that side. His eyes were fine.
I am waiting to see what Dr. Ammar thinks after the surgery to see if there was anything in the retrobulbar space. Any Hematoma, for example.
Regardless of the underlying cause – the vet on Monday felt possible growth, glaucoma is brutally painful, and the left eye needed to be removed & immediately.
So grateful to them to EVC for being able to schedule this urgent surgery so quickly!!
We are now in desperate need of funds.
We truly would be deeply grateful for anything….
