Dash's New Eye!

As I had mentioned previously  Dash was diagnosed with Glaucoma back in May and had laser surgery on his right eye in June, in an attempt to save the eye and reduce the pressure.  Although the surgery was initially successful when I returned last week for his 3 month recheck the pressure in his right eye was again very high.  He had again not shown any discomfort or pain and the eye has been looking quite good.  The ophthalmologist, Dr. Kelli Combs Ramey at Western Veterinary Specialists in Calgary, advised we could do another laser procedure, but she recommended for Dash’s comfort that the eye be removed.  So, last Thursday, September 10th,  Dash had surgery to remove the eye and had a prosthetic eye inserted.  He is recovering well and thankfully I am still on vacation and able to be with him.  Dash' s new  Rex Specs K9 goggles are making the recovery process easier, he does not have to wear the “cone of shame” all day!

This picture was taken on October 23rd, a few weeks after Dash's surgery.  Can you guess which eye is his new one?
