Hi I'm new to the forum but not new to owning dogs, but I wanted to find out if other members have any dogs suffering from Glaucoma? our dog Tilly is due for an eye operation as she has to lose an eye due to a cat attack about a week and a half ago. She suffered secondary glaucoma as a result and will be on medication for the rest of her life. She is seven years old, a mini foxy cross and is so smart.
She is on medication for her good eye because its meant to prevent glaucoma but it means at night she's lost more then half her vision because of how the medication works. She'll be having an operation in the next couple of days or so because he left eye has lost all sight and the lens has moved which has caused damage and is called something like lens luxation. It basically means she's totally lost sight in that eye and the optic nerves are damaged.
I'm wondering is there anything else we could be doing to help her other then the surgery and the medication? the doctors/vets/specialists have told us all they could and now I'm wanting to find support and other info from members who have had something similar?
many thanks in advance
Jess and furbabies.
