My poor Shiloh is sick

Shiloh is having some eye issues.  This morning she would not open her eyes, so we started doing some checking, and both of her eyes were really really red. We decided to do the safe thing and took her to the vet tonight.  This is a pic of us waiting for her eyes to get numb so she could get a pressure test done.

They are not 100% sure what is wrong.  It could be Dry Eye, but not sure yet.  They have her on Artificial Tears and Neo-Poly-Dex for the next 7 days, and then we go back to the vet.  Here tear production is 1/3rd what it should be and her eye pressure was very low.

She seems so sad to me!!  She is still having a hard time opening her eyes.  My poor Shiloh!

Her birthday is also coming up!  November the 8th she will be 9 years old!
If you want to send her a Card, or a letter or anything, our Address is

Or just leave her some comments!  I will read them all to her.  My poor little girl.


  1. We hope that Shiloh will be ok. We got our paws crossed for her.

    Shiloh, please get well soon as you have lots of fun celebrations for your 9th barkday!

  2. Poor sweetheart! I hope it turns out to be an easy correction. It was good you took her in immediately, sibes are prone to a few eye disorders. Paws crossed she feels better soon!

  3. Hopefully this is not too serious, maybe an allergy or something that got in her eyes. Hope the meds help.

  4. Oh! Poor Shiloh, our paws are crossed for her!

  5. Get better Shiloh you pretty girl!

  6. Miss Shiloh! I hope they checked the pressure on your eyeballs. My momma's little hound got the glaucoma and they did not check the pressure and then it got super bad. I know your mom will make sure you get the best possible treatment. In the meantime, I will keep my paws crossed for you.


  7. Woof! Woof! Sending Shiloh Lots of my Golden Thoughts ... hopefully it is just allergies ( i had that problem before). Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  8. Get better Shiloh! We are crossing all paws and fingers for you!

  9. Hope Shiloh is feeling better. We have had to go through the eye drop routine with Rusty once and that was totally no fun.

  10. uh oh, i hope it's not too serious......well, best hopes to Shiloh! Sure hope it's not a problem for too long.

  11. How is Shiloh feeling? Haven't seen a post since the 3rd - sure hope she is feeling better...and Happy Birthday a little early! I hope tomorrow, on her Birthday, she is happy and feeling good! Thinking of you all...

  12. Get well soon Shiloh, sending positive thoughts your way... Such a pretty girl...
