Please welcome Rachel to Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue. This poor, sweet girl was found wandering the city and picked up by animal control who contacted our group. We think Rachel is about 2 years old. She needs entropion surgery on both eyes. Her left eye was not too bad and it cleaned up easily. Her right eye is twice its size and severely inflamed. You can easily see where an ulcer has perforated the eye. The course of treatment will be to sew the eyelids shut for several days to help the cornea heal without rupturing further. She does appear to still have some vision in that eye. Whether she can regain any more eyesight still needs to be determined. Other than her eyes, she appears to be in pretty good health. Rachel is calm and very sweet. Say some special prayers for this girl as she undergoes her eye surgeries and has everything else checked out.
8/2/17 Update: Today, vet did her entropion and sewed the eye shut in an effort to help in recover. From Dr. Larsen: “The injury is weeks old. See the vessels migrating over the puncture? This takes a few weeks to happen.”
8/20/17 Update: Poor Rachel! Her eye infection was so severe that even with the special treatment, she had to have the eye removed this past week. Yet she is a real trooper. She is the happiest girl in the clinic. Her pain is gone and she is celebrating. She is the prettiest one-eyed Bulldog girl ever!
