    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."

    Ron Hi Folks Well last week we took our dog, an 11 year old Jack Russell cross, to a veterinary ophthalmologist after being referred by our local vet. As background about 2 years ago Spotty became suddenly “blind”.He seemed happy enough and so we didn’t take any action other than keeping things in the same place and helping guide him on his daily walks. About 6 weeks ago I noticed a stain under his eye. Like it had been weeping. I looked but couldn’t see anything and he seemed fine. 3 weeks ago I noticed him rubbing his eye and when I looked I could see it was weeping with some sort of infection. Anyhow the specialist checked and said both eyes need to be removed as 1 eye is infected and both have glaucoma with pressure readings of high 30s.... after a week of drops. I asked her if she was certain he was blind as he sometimes seems to know something is in front of him. She is saying that he is totally blind. I am not 100% sure on that but she is the expert. Anyway Wednesday spotty is booked in to have both eyes removed. Yes wow!! I just want to share this with you in case others are going through something similar and will try to keep you updated on how spotty goes.

    Nancy Hi. So, my 3 yr old mini poodle diagnosed cataracts both eyes in Feb. He had surgery in right eye and was successful but today found out the retina detaching ( already lost 40 percent) Right eye holding its own but will probably follow same path. We are devastated for my little boy. Thank you all for listening 🙏
