Hi Cheryl,

Just checked in to see how your appt. with the IMS went and saw that you had to cancel it. Hoping you can get there soon and she can help him. Hugs to you and Barney.

Thanks guys
I need to get his chart from his former IMS. I thought I had enough of a paper trail here from prior vet visits to pull it together, until I started searching for my paper work.
The old CC.net site was almost Barney's diary. I used his thread to look up lab values I had posted, etc.....
I am so lost with out it. My fault entirely, I should have kept the numbers on my computer as well. I had very little documentation, everything was phone calls.

I will get the chart and THEN make the appointment.

Barney's eye is looking MUCH better. And the improvement seems to be sustained, overall. He still squints quite a bit, but the eye is opened probably more that it is closed. I am sooo hoping that he is finally healing!

Happy day here!

Hey guys, sorry I haven't been here much the past few days. Crazy busy schedule this week. Our little community hospital is going to computerized charting and I have been in computer class all week.

Barney had an eye appt with Dr Rick. Maybe a slight change for the better, he said before he could see a "lip" or and edge where the cells were building up and not sticking to the membrane. He doesn't see the lip any more.
I see the eye specialist this Tuesday.

Funny thing is I got disgusted with the eye drops. 4 times a day for just the antibiotic eye drop and then the tears, and it seemed all for nothing. This has gone on for months. He and I are both tired. I didn't put his eyedrops in for two days........and his eye looks fantastic! I am talking a HUGE improvement. Not sure if it is coincidence or if maybe the drops were irritating him???? Anyway since our eye appt is only a day away I am going to continue like I have been and see what happens.

Now my other problem. I shampooed my carpets upstairs a few days ago. My dogs are very very good about going potty outside. It can be months or years between accidents. As soon as I shampooed, I am finding pee and poop everywhere!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Carpet is beige
This didn't start until after I shampooed the carpets, and ironically I just bought a new steam cleaner! I am pretty sure it's Beth. I went upstairs to go to bed yesterday morning and she was hiding beside my dresser.
The former owners of this house had cats. Think I may have stirred something up? I don't see any old spots, but there sure are a lot of new ones

Any suggestions?

Oh sure, it's always Beth's fault!!! Beth Beth Beth....sure blame poor Beth...we can take it!

Weird with the eye....but you may be right! Sometimes I think we can overdo (not that you weren't following instructions....just that sometimes I think after a while Mother Nature does better.....my opinion....and it's trial and error...)....I'll be interested to hear what the doc thinks!

As for the carpet, I was once told by a carpet guy that steam cleaners can do just what you are seeing. They make the smell come up but don't get rid of the underlying problem. Kind of like when it's humid and you can smell accidents worse. What I have done in the past, and it has helped, is "shampooed" the carpet with Nature's Miracle. If the area is too large to douse with it straight from the bottle, I have gone over the area letting the carpet cleaner spray it on and then I leave it, put towels down until it dries. Sometimes this has taken a few times....

Now, you go give Beth kissies and tell it's OK, bc the other Beth said so....she's just trying to mark what's her's....not that I have peed on the carpet myself! But surely there is just no way it is her fault....

Love ya! The Other Beth

Right along with "BB", I will also be interested in what Barney's eye doc has to say. Munchie's eye doc certainly had an entirely different opinion from the GP vets he saw.

I've also used Beth's (the human) technique for kitty urine in the carpet. I put the solution into the carpet cleaner, saturate the area and then blow dry with a box fan. Have used Natures Miracle in the past but switched to Simple Solution. Munchie never has had accidents in the house but my senior kitty was a repeat offender. I have a birch carpet and either brand of the cleaning solution leaves a yellowish residue that I have to wipe off with a damp sponge. With a beige carpet you may end up with the residue too but other than that the stuff seems to work.
