OK, my LAB is 9 years old and just was diagnosed 2 months ago with diabetes. In the past two weeks, she has gone totally blind in both eyes. We can’t get her numbers below 350 and are up to 28 units of insulin twice a day….we go back next week to see if this works.
Now, here is the latest. The vet just called ( by the way she is great ) and said that the pressure is so great in her eyes and that the drops given to her and the anti-inflammatory are only a temporary fix for something that won’t get better. She says that the most humane thing to do would be to remove both eyes. I just don’t know if I can do that. Her eyes now look like giant pearls ( no pupils anymore ) and I realize she can’t see but I just don’t know if I can remove both eyes, especially since we can’t seem to get her numbers regulated for the diabetes.
She is a great dog and I don’t want her to suffer…..I just don’t know what to do…..
