Not what you were expecting? Not what I was expecting either!
Over the last 4 months, she has been at the vets almost every Friday for blood pressure checks, blood tests, and monitoring.
This all happened after ‘routine’ dental work after we asked for tests to be done due to her age (pre-anesthesia). The same day she went in for her blood tests, she had retinal detachment, meaning she was blind. Thankfully we caught it almost immediately, and her sight as recovered (as far as we know).
Needless to say, she’s run up a hell of a vets bill, and requires treats for medication, and various other high maintenance upkeep now.
… but as long as she is happy, that’s all that matters.
