Her nose has been slowly healing since she made it bleed on the front window over the weekend. But that is life with DLE. Fingers crossed it heals up fast for her. She is able to do some bed making (flipping blankets with her nose) without it bleeding so that is good.
She left another blood streak on the window this morning. Unfortunately there is no way to block her from the window that wouldn't result in her injuring the skin even more. We've got her beds moved away from the window as much as we can without risking a leg injury when she sees something exciting.
We’ve reduced the amount of fish oil she’s getting by 1 capsule after her Saturday vet visit just in case the spots in her eye are lipid deposits caused by high triglycerides. She’s still getting a high therapeutic dose of Omega-3 fatty acids, just not as high a dose. We will be keeping an eye on her nose to see if less fish oil negatively impacts the healing process. I don’t think it will since she gets such a high dose.
