Gizmo at eye doctor
Dr Carla HIbbs and Assistant Miranda with Gizmo at Eye Care for Animals

It was time for Gizmo’s six-month eye checkup today at Eye Care for Animals and he got a good report – he can go nine months to his next one. He has Pigmentosa Keratitis in both eyes (a brown pigment band runs across the center of each eye) and fluid in the cornea of his left eye (the one that got damaged when he was younger) that gives it a white appearance.

But those are to keep infections down and maybe keep the conditions from getting worse. Continue reading Gizmo eye doctor. Texas Roadhouse dinner. Newsletter.

Kerby had the bandage and stitches removed this morning from the surgery to remove a wart on his left hind foot. He has done well since the surgery, with no indication of any pain or discomfort. And the wart came off cleanly and healed well according to his vet, Dr Young and Dr Campanile of Companion Pet Clinic.
