Linus had 2 operations today. He had an eye operation to fix his cherry eye (when the tear gland tears free from its moorings and begins to float). They removed the gland, as the other option doesn't always work and we aren't doing this twice.
He also had a tooth fixed and his teeth cleaned. He had a slab fracture of a molar (when the side breaks away) and was developing a cavity, so that was fixed, his teeth were cleaned and sealed. Hopefully we won't have to pull the tooth for a couple of years now.
We got this done in Wyoming at the vet my mother works for because the vet I have in Ca thinks he's smarter than I am and that he should dictate treatment options to us.
