    Paula - ADMIN NEWS!!: A device has just been released for blind dogs to help them better navigate. Here's a bit of info I took from the site: "The BlindSight® unit is a specialized "Sonar" type transmitter that produces a sound that may be used by a dog to navigate in much the same way as a dolphin or bat. The sound produced by the BlindSight® unit is well outside of the human hearing range. There is no annoying audible "click" or "ping". In tests the units remained on 24 hours a day with no apparent problems with a dog's sleep or relaxation. BlindSight® uses inexpensive, commonly available disposable batteries for a normal battery life of up to 1.5 years (up to 3.5 years with premium lithium batteries, in indoor mode). The latest BlindSight® uses a completely sealed transducer, is designed for a 10+ year service life and is "patent pending". Spares for parts that might easily be lost are included. Obviously no concessions were made to "looks", but simple functionality and extreme ruggedness define the basic design."

    lois Hi, I have just found this website and am so grateful as I have been feeling very lost since my precious Gracie was diagnosed with PRA a couple of weeks ago. It's a huge relief ju st having others to talk to about her condition. I realise now it had been coming on for some months, but it wasn't until she started bumping into the furniture that I realised what was going on. I have also just found a book on Amazon called 'My Dog is Blind But Lives Life to the Full' by Nicole Horsky which I can't wait to read. I've also read somewhere that antioxidants can help a dog with PRA. Anyone had any experience of this? Thank you. x

    Barbara My Boston Terrier, Buddy, had surgery on Monday to remove his right eye. Both eyes had glaucoma but the right had an ulcer that started bleeding. Drops and ointment didn't help and the pressure went to 75 while his left eye was 25. So we're a few days in and he has adjusted really well. We continue to put stops in left eye, meanwhile. This morning, I thought his remaining eye looked better, less blue and hazy... But I didn't say anything because that would be crazy, right? Tonight, my daughter says to me, "Mom, Buddy's eye looks better!" So I'm not crazy, maybe. I swear, it does! is that even possible? We see the vet on Thursday to have sutures removed and I can't wait to hear her thoughts.
