Adrian and I got home an hour ago after taking our dog, Maya, to the vet for an after-hours emergency. Earlier this evening we noticed her squinting and her eyes looked bloodshot. Then, her third eyelid came up. I started to get very worried because this obviously looked totally abnormal, so I called the vet and we went in at almost 11pm.
Turned out that it was a good idea, as she has a scratched cornea and the vet said that waiting until tomorrow could have caused a lot of pain and potential problems for our little girl. He gave us some antibiotic ointment to put in her eyes a few times per day and scheduled us for an appointment on Friday. She is already looking better.
I love our vet!
