    Default Can my little rescue/foster puppy have a few jingles please???

    I am fostering a little American Bulldog mix puppy here with the rest of my menagerie. He was born with one healthy eye and one eye that wasn't right. The eyeball is tiny, as is the socket, and he has no vision in it.

    In order to keep that socket from getting debris and stuff in it, on Monday the vet enucleated the eye and sewed it close. He was started on clavamox and pain killers, but today we noticed a little bit of drainage, and it smelled funny. So back to the vet he went, where he's now on Orbax, is wearing the cone of shame (he's 9 weeks old. He is NOT happy about the cone of shame!), and we increased his pain medication from metacam to metacam and tramadol.

    He is eating well, no temp, active when not stoned, does have a bit of diahhrea, and of course the eye drainage. He could use a few jingles for a quick recovery so he can get that stupid cone off his head and be allowed out of the pen to play. He's MAD! Mad!Mad! Mad!

    Poor guy. On the other hand, anyone in NE Florida want a cute Am. Bulldog mix with one eye? He's sweet as he can be, crate trained, well on his way to house trained, gets along with dogs, cats, and everything else so far, doesn't like loud noises, and has been a pleasure to foster. If so, let me know.

    Jingles for a quick recovery. At 9 weeks it must be awful to be stuck in the "cone".

    Poor little guy! Jingles! It is actually sometimes easier to place a one-eyed dog or cat, the sympathy factor is huge, and I bet this puppy has a major cuteness factor.
