Martini in the Cone of Shame

Last night when Mr. Pop took Martini out he saw two of those walking stick bugs that squirt poison when they are in danger. As he was steering Martini away from them there were two more he didn’t see and sadly Martini got too close to them and they got him in the eye. We quickly washed his eyes out with an eye wash but the damage was done.

This morning we took him to his vet and discovered he has two tiny ulcers on the cornea of his left eye. The poison from the bugs burned his cornea. The vet gave me a cream and drops to put into his eye three times a day. Because we don’t want him to rub his eye against anything until it is healed, he has to wear one of those plastic collars that makes him look like his head is coming out of the large end of a funnel. The vet is hopeful that things are much better in a week or so.

So if you saw the movie, “Up”, you know how Martini looks in his new cone of shame. We decided he can go trick or treating as the dog from “UP”.

Poor Martini! Nothing like a Cone-head to make his life miserable! Hugs to Martini.
