eye injury

March 16th, 2016 / / categories: injuries /

Aramis got another eye injury on his left eye. A deep corneal ulcer. Was recommended to go to see eye specialist. Did not go. Got steroid medicine. Putting 2x a day for 10 days.

I kept putting 1 a day until it cleared, it took some time but he recovered.

I bought him a pair of doggles to protect his eyes when he is annoying D’artagnan and they fight.

He hates it , tried to remove them many times, ultimately he gave it,  and kept frozen when wearing them.

he eyes are protected and fighting has been reduced due to some teaching on my part.




Back pain

May 10th, 2015 / / categories: Breed, injuries, Medication, Vet /

Aramis damaged his back again.
I put a hot pad to alleviate the pain but this time it was worse so we went to the vet.


The vet got two x ray done, and there were multiples pain spots.

He prescribed TRAMADOL HCI 50 mg ,

  • 1/2 tablet every 8-12 hours.


  • 1 tablet every 12 hours ( 2 per day ) for 2 days
  • 1 tablet once daily  for 3 days
  • 1/2 tablet once daily for 5 days


I grated an apple to mix with his meds taht I crushed into powder; he didn’t like it so I added some  dog dry food to it.I also tried sheep milk yogurt to mix with his meds he didn’t like either.

I will mix with banana as he likes it. Hopefully he won’t notice the meds.
