Stella is the sweetest most gorgeous girl but I’m very worried about her and a little overwhelmed with sadness right now.
We knew she had ERU (equine recurrent uveitis) which is essentially inflammation of the middle of the eye.
But I had no idea just how bad.
Her bad eye is a disaster, she has no sight at all and is quite painful and would have been for a long time.
I have no doubt at all that the eye needs removal ASAP.
Her other eye is a little inflamed and sensitive but she at least has sight.
Sadly we discovered she also has nasty masses all over her vulva.
She was immediately started on pain relief.
She has a full belly and is happily grazing with Mav and Trum (who are acting as if she doesn’t exist ).
Our vet will be out to examine her ASAP and we will decide what is the best plan for her.
I have not given up on her but I also will not allow her to suffer and will be guided by our very experienced equine vet.
Stella is so sweet and allows us to put creams in her eyes and around her vulva without blinking an eye! We think she is feeling much more comfortable and is enjoying being loved on by all our loving volunteers!
Whatever the outcome for dear Stella, she will be showered with love, fussed over and given every opportunity with only the best of everything to ensure she lives out her days happy, well fed and as pain-free as we can possibly make her.
