As I am always the bearer of bad news I thought I'd post some good news for a change!

Dylan had his jabs today (just the triple, having lepto and kennel cough next week) and a tear test. The tear test came back perfect, in fact, it shot up to 14 in 30 seconds and it's a minute test. 14 is what we wanted, it went a bit higher. :rah: So I'm taking Margaret's advice and cleaning eyes after every walk.

We met a nice B&T in the park afterwards. On a previuos occation, I met the owners of the B&T's sister :thmbsup:with her 13 year old ruby so that was nice. Dylan was so tired when we got home, he curled up to sleep in the bath when I wanted to wash his paws but he's demanding a game of fetch right now so I better go!!!

Oh, I nearly forgot, the vet said his heart sounds very good. :D:D:D

:rah: Great news Pauline - about time something went right for you. Dry eye isn't the end of the world, but with all the other things it would be just one more that you could do without.

Enjoy your game with Dylan :dogwlk:

Pauline, that is good news. :rah:

I notice sometimes when Minnie gets back from walks, especially when its cold, her eyes are very runny and are mucky the next day. I just wash them round with saline solution (what you get for contact lenses) and that seems to sort them out.

Brilliant news Pauline :rah:.
Jaspers eyes are always clean, but just recently his eyes have been a little runny and mucky, I guess it is to do with this cold winter we are having.

:hug:to you and your apple dumpling :D.

That is wonderful news, Pauline!

I was curious, though about the lepto shot he is getting. Does your vet recommend this one? Our vet does not even give lepto to many breeds including any toy breeds due to the high risk of bad reactions. You would have to actually request it.
Our breeder said "absolutely no lepto or coronavirus" vaccine as well.
I guess it depends on the risks where you are, but I wondered what your vet's recommendations for vaccines was.

It's standard here, he has the lepto shot every year. I didn't know of any reactions, he's always been fine. As for coronavirus, without looking it up, that's kennel cough isn't it? We have a boarding kennel in the next road to us and kennel cough is an airborne virus. I don't want to take the risk with that one. :thmbsup:

It's nice to hear some good news from you and Dylan.

Coronavirus isn't kennel cough. That is bordetella. The kennel cough shot is short-lived which is why most boarding places want you to have had the shot in the previous 6 months.
Coronavirus is something else.

I remember speaking to someone about Coronavirus but I can't for the life of me remember what was said, I think it's the SARS virus. Dylan isn't vaccinated against this he is vaccinated against parvovirus, hepatitis and distemper lepto and kennel cough.
