Learning not to be paranoid!
Hi again! I've asked a few health questions here and there about Pickles, my 8.5 month old Hav. I'm a paranoid girl; if I think something is wrong, I immediately make a vet appointment. And I should note that Pickles is and has always been in perfect health.
So last night, we were concerned about his eye. He was squinting a lot, and it was quite red. My boyfriend teased me about being too protective until he took a closer look at P's eye - it was quite red and inflamed, and he thought it was scratched. (We have a cat). So we went straight to the emergency vet.
Turns out there was nothing wrong, aside from some irritation from dirt. My boyfriend had seen the inner eyelid and mistook it for a gash in his eye. We were quite relieved, and Pickles' eye is looking much better.
My question is this: how do you avoid being over protective with your pups? Pickles is so important to me, so I find myself worrying over small things. Does anyone else find themselves doing this, or am I just too protective of my lil man?
