Luke Had One of His Eyes Removed! 4/4
Image by redteam
This is Luke – my family’s 8 year old Jack Russell Terrier. He started having eye problems last summer (July 2008). As a result, the lens was removed from his left eye. Jack Russells have plenty of congenital eye problems. Luckily, Luke’s brother Loco doesn’t seem to have any of them. Luke’s right eye was removed yesterday (Feb 2009) because of complications with a luxated lens, glaucoma, and retinal damage.
Despite the pain killers and antibiotics, Luke is experiencing a great deal of discomfort today. He isn’t exactly whimpering, but he is grumbling and whining a lot. He is having a hard time resting. I would too if I had been drugged, had my eye removed, had the edges of my eyelids snipped off, had what was left of my eyelids stapled together, and then had a radar dish mounted on my head. Seriously, though, I appreciate the work Luke’s veterinarians did – I think they did a good job.
This evening he finally ate some food and drank a lot of water. He even walked himself out to the lawn and peed out there. He can’t see very well at all, but he did manage to find his soccer ball, which he usually plays around with all day long. Good boy, Lukas!
