With Simon’s eye pressure raising
The vet said emergency surgery was necessary.
Simon had been staying at the vet for two days being consistently monitored for his eye pressure. Simon has a high grade heart murmur and the vet was trying eye medicine to avoid surgery. In the beginning of the week his eye pressure was at 36 on Monday and Wednesday it was at 80. The vet was giving Simon eye drops every so often and then checking the pressure. The average pressure range is 10-11. The vet suggested emergency surgery due to the pain the dog was in. Simon was no longer eating or drinking.
The vet who did the surgery did consult with an eye specialist before doing the surgery. The specialist wanted to charge over $2,000 for the surgery. Birdella, Simon’s mom, knew that her vet could do the surgery without any issue.
Birdella rescued Simon years ago. When she got him he was infected with parasites and very sick. She nursed him back to health and said he has been in great health other than the glaucoma.
The vet was nice enough to leave the bill open for 2 weeks.
Within the last year Birdella has had two emergency surgeries herself costing thousands of dollars for her deductible.
