Our 14 year old pom mix, has diabetes and cushings disease.. went to the vet today and Mickey is now blind.
I am so not sure how to help him cope. He is our best friend. He loves to go outside and follow us around, or chase squirrels up the tree. Now I am so afraid he is going to run into a bush or fall down stairs or something worse to hurt himself more. He lays around the house and bumps into things. He seems to find comfort always near my feet. I try not to move things around, like his water dish and food dish will remain in the same spot.
He will likely cope better then I will, but I want to do my best to protect him. Looking for ideas to help us both adjust..the picture of three dogs.. black one Josie passed away a month ago at age 16, Mickey is in the middle and our 4 year old shitzu is buttons.
