|So my little 15 week old fur baby has what appears to be a stye? I kept an eye on it for a few days, did some warm compresses, but after 4 days I felt like I should take her to the vet for some meds. I go to Petsmart Banfield, because I'm on the puppy plan and I really do like the staff... So I take her in, the vet takes a look at her (he's not seen Macy before... I usually have the same dr.) and he thinks it's also a stye... proceeds to squeeze the hell out of her little bump... At first, I was ok with it... just to see if something came out of it... as if it were maybe a bug bite instead? But then he just kept squeezing it! I almost said something, but then he stopped and just said, "Ya we'll get her some meds".
My question is... have any of you had a puppy with a stye? Especially bulgy eyed breeds...
Second question... Should I have told the vet to stop, because I'm not comfortable with him treating her like that? I realize vets deal with animals all day, but that just wasn't cool with me. I don't pick at my face, because it causes irritation and just shouldn't be messed with... and I feel the same about Macy's little eye bump... Was he ok to do that since he's a professional?
It just really set me off and I needed to vent... I always ask for the same dr. and I'm really irritated that they completely ignored my wishes.
Thanks in advance. (For listening, and for your input!)
