Good Morning and happy Friday peeps! Before I jump into my post about the kitty cats I wanted to thank you guys all SO much for your kind words for Duke. His vision is back and he is feeling great! I even took him on a sunset trail ride with me yesterday to run off some energy. He was as high as a kite from being cooped up the last couple days.
I'm thankful he's okay, holy freaking cow that was scary! What a lesson we learned. In talking with the vet he mentioned that herding dogs like cattle dogs aka heelers, collies and shepherds are highly sensitive to Ivermectin as it seems to go straight to their brain.
I wanted to be sure to pass this on since some of you are concerned about using this dewormer. I've used Ivermectic for years and have never had a problem with it, certainly never had a dog eat horse poo and suddenly go blind. Duke is a heeler/shep mix, a herding animal and that's explains why his reaction was so bad.
Ms Blue Eyes is one the kitties I got a couple weeks ago and she's hilarious...
Both kitties have both been exploring during the daytime hours while sticking close to the tack room. Ms Green Eyes is starting to venture further out but still makes it back at dusk. They both seem to have settled in nicely.
