Heartbroken over my dog losing an eye.


My 7yo Shihtzu/Bischon mix just had surgery to remove her eye due to a Corneal Ulcer that perforated. It was only 3 days from first noticing a problem to her surgery to remove it. I am devastated. We’re not even sure how this all happened. Everything happened so fast. Now I question if I should of gotten a second opinion although Doctor was an eye specialist. I have so many questions going through my head. Why didn’t I notice it soon enough to save it. I guess I am just looking for support. I have been crying for days.

  1. So sorry to hear about your fur baby losing her sight. I understand what you are going through. My 10 year old Schnoodle was diagnosed last month with SARDS and is now blind. I still cry off and on.
    I want to be with her all the time, because I imagine she’s scared or lonely. But honestly, I think I’m taking it harder than she is.
    What has helped me is reading/researching on ways to help her adjust, and reminding myself that she can still have a great quality of life.
    Some of the ways I’m helping her adjust is by being more vocal and placing non skid material on my wood stairs. I bought her a harness/halo so she doesn’t run into walls or objects when we’re in unfamiliar locations. It looks funny, but it helps.
    So sorry for what you and your pup are going through. Hope this post helps.
