Ozzie's Seedy Troubles!

Ozzie attended our Caerphilly surgery this week with a really sore left eye. When checked out by our vet Gordon, he found Ozzie had a large grass seed stuck in his eye which was rubbing and causing infection. Gordon removed it and Ozzie is definitely feeling a lot happier without it!

 

 

Unfortunately we are now entering that time of year when we see a lot of grass seed problems, especially from the large umbrella type seeds found in long grass. They are most commonly seen in dogs paws where they get trapped between the toes and work their way into the skin. Make sure you are checking daily for any seeds on your pets coats and paws so you can remove them before they cause problems.
