So nice that you kept him. Some people would figure, he's better off to be put down. Thank You!!
Yeah, we were crushed when we found out.
We did everything humanly possible for him. We even found an animal eye specialist and had them evaluate and treat in addition to another practice plus his own Vet. Tried multiple drugs to get glaucoma under control, nothing worked. It amazed me how three different medical practices worked together for him. Heck, even the follow up calls from all of them, even the one that wasnt directly involved amazed me.
I had an outpatient procedure done on my heart last Nov and didnt get those follow up calls! *LOL*
The bottom line the first eye had to go and not even two days later the other back in 7/2021 they couldn't believe how fast it spread where the first eye ruptured the day before the operation.
With that said, my wife and I being realistic asked each of the doctors what kind of life will he have without sight. They were certain that his breed will do very well being blind and he will no longer be in pain and can lead a happy life. That was the ONLY concern of my wife, that we removed the pain and he can still be the dog he is, even blind. From what I understand not all breeds handle it well.
The doctors were right. In his case it would have been 100% wrong to put him down.
He is a remarkable dog, we learned a lot for him and as weird as this sounds, he is very interesting to watch and see how he goes about life, to this day still amazes us and I always take photos, even videos of him going up and down two flights of stairs on his own.
Ok, one last photo, again, last night, one thing we noticed is is sense of smell is incredible and even though his hearing isnt as good as it was even last year sound seems to make his happy or secure? It's really fascinating to see. Sitting down again last night, TV on, after he is done playing positions himself facing the TV where the sound is coming out of the speaker. Ok two last photos ...
