Summertime hazard

We’ve seen pets with irritated ears, dogs limping or worrying at their paws and dogs and cats with nasal trouble – and all due to a pesky grass seed that has become lodged while a pet has been out at play. This is poor Tigger, who came in to see us with a very poorly irritated eye. On investigation, Tigger actually had a grass seed lodged under her third eyelid (the extra eyelid that lots of animals have between the inside corner of the eyeball and the normal eyelid). No wonder she had been in distress as it must have been very painful. In the photo above, you can just see the grass seed in the process of being extracted. And there is the offending culprit below. Ouch!
