I would wait on the neopolydex only because sometimes steroids can make eye problems worse. I know using it on ulcers is a big no-no so just to be on the safe side you might just wait until you can take him in.
Poor guy's kind of a mess. I wish I had known when he was a younger dog all the things I know now. He'd probably be less fear aggressive and healthier. Though he's had next to no health problems until the last 2 or 3 years. But now he's making up for lost time. He's such a sweet boy <3

I think that side's maybe always a little more visible. Hopefully, it's even better in the morning. Since the vet doesn't require an appointment, I can just take him in at any point that I think it's getting worse.
I have had him since he was 6 weeks old. He'll be 16 this summer; I got him when I was 15, so he lived with my folks while I was away at college, and was a mostly outside dog for the majority of his life. When I bought my own house, though, he came and lived with me, since I could let him in more and spoil him to try and make up for some lost time. He's having a harder and harder time getting around now and I couldn't imagine him outside full time. I've made a lot of missteps with him, but he's taught me so much. He's such a sensitive soul. Sounds a little silly, but Robin's got so many similar "issues" that I see her as kind of an opportunity to do things the way I wish I had, knowing what I know now.

My boss's dog has this, she got it when she was 6-ish. She's a Golden Retriever and for a while she couldn't blink, just her 3rd eye lids would move and it made her lips tight and her ears stick up kind of funny. She's had it for maybe 2yrs now, no real change for her. She can kind of blink now, but she still looks weird. She doesn't have health issues otherwise and has had no breathing issues so hopefully it is the same for him.
I hope the antibiotics take care of the UTI, sucks getting old!
