Well poor little Tofu has been having some skin irritation, she also needed to get another vaccination, and we wanted to check on her lazy eye- So, we scheduled a vet appointment! As a foster parent, I do not pay for Tofu’s vet care. I provide her with food, toys, training, socialization, love, structure, and confidence. However, vet care is something that I cannot cover (as a student with big loans looming over my head). I wish I could, and I hope to be able to in the future. But for now, we thank LCPO for being so amazing and providing wonderful care for their puppies.
In case you didn’t know, Tofu is deaf! But please don’t tell her, we don’t want her to be self conscious. We’ve also realized that she has a lazy eye that may be resulting in vision impairment. So sure, she’s a little “special”.
You can see her droopy eye on the left. She doesn’t seem to mind in the slightest! But we wanted to make sure it was OK and that there was nothing we could do to help her.
Well sadly, the vet said that it did not appear to be a regular cataract. She wasn’t sure what was wrong so she suggested we look into an eye specialist for our girl. It could potentially be anything from a different type of cataract to a tumor 😦 And the best solution may be removing the eye. We are going to watch it carefully and have it looked at it again in the future. My poor foster girl has a few issues going on! However, neither of us notice them very much. Especially when there is cuddling or kissing involved. 🙂
Please send her some good, happy vibes to help her keep her eye and find an adoptive family. ❤ She is truly a doll!
