I have a 5 year old shih tzu who was put on apoquel for severe allergies. She was on it for 2 years. Not sure if that had anything to do with her having an eye ulcer in one eye requiring her to have surgery on it twice.
The day of the second surgery on her left eye, her right eye developed an ulcer. Within one day of the diagnosis and being on drops and meds, her right eye ruptured and she had to have it removed.
She is currently recovering from that while we are trying to save the initial eye that has had the two surgeries.
I am taking her to the vet Saturday to have the pressure in her eye checked as the ulcers went into glaucoma. I was devastated but reading all these stories has helped. Whatever happens she is still the sweetest baby and I know will do fine.
Please keep my Bella girl in your prayers.
