Firstly, thanks so much to Dr Hope for her care, kindness for our kitten burmese Princess, who unfortunately had a brief encounter in a front loading washing machine on Saturday. My fiancé and I rushed Princess to Willoughby Vet on Saturday shortly after the incident occurred, just to make sure she was ok, and have a check up after this horrific accident. Princess thankfully did not have any broken bones, as that was my first initial concern. However, due to the washing power being highly concentrated, it did burn her eyes very badly and cause her a lot of irritation to her eyelids. This was obvious immediately, and something that I had not initially given thought to.
Dr Hope was fantastic, giving Princess pain killers, anti inflammatory, eye drops and checking her temperature. She did stay in the vet for 2 nights and was put on a drip and closely monitored. Thankfully, Princess slowly improved, and this morning I picked her up and took her home. I will care for her to make sure she makes a full recovery and will give her her medication as prescribed and eye drops 4 times a day.
To any pet owner out there, please take this as a warning. Always make sure your pet is no where near the washing machine and/or dishwasher when you are going to use these appliances! I have heard of so many tragic accidents involving cats having these types of accidents. My weekend was very sad, not knowing the outcome of Princess, and my fiancé and I were worried sick. Thankfully she is on the mend, and I will bring her back on Thursday afternoon for another check up to make sure he eye sight is ok, and that her eyes are healing up.
A huge thank you again to Dr Hope for helping Princess and keeping me informed of her progress and treatment. I am a huge animal lover myself, so was very appreciative of everything Dr Hope did to help us. xxWith warm regards, Christina
Thankyou to Christina for the lovely letter, we are very appreciative of your high regard and glad that we could help out. We will be posting updates on Princess’s progress and hope to see little Princess bouncing around energetically soon.
