VoyouMy 9 year old bichon was diagnosed with glaucoma in his right eye 4 month’s ago. After the vet looked him over, he told me that he had glaucoma in that eye. He put him on two kinds of drops, and an oral pill to make him urinate more often. Then he told me that if this wasn’t successful in a weeks time, that he probably would lose sight in that eye and possibly the other in time. Now, Voyou is completely blind in one eye, and the vet eye doctor said Voyou’s right eye needs to be removed. Until today, I’ve been in denial. Finally I realize I have to do research and make a decision. I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO.

Please help me

  1. I’ve already responded to you on the Activity page but thought I would repost the same response below just in case you miss it…

    It’s okay, really it is. This is always the most difficult time for an owner of a dog with glaucoma. Everything seems really bad but I can tell you know that nothing is as bad as it seems. First of all, your dog will be in pain despite the drops. Glaucoma in dogs is always more painful than glaucoma in humans. It’s almost like having a migraine 24/7. So with that in mind and the fact that your dog is completely blind in that eye should give you good reason to get that eye out as soon as possible. It’s the best thing for your dog at this point. And he will cope beautifully with it all as all dogs do. My dog was completely blind and lived happily and your dog will too.

  2. Hi

    Although Blackie didn’t lose his eyes he has lost his sight, we are not 3 months down the road and although it has been slow progress there has been progress and I am sure it is me that is more distressed than he is

    The advise and reassurance I have had from others on this site has been invaluable.

    Good luck with your decision I am sure you will do the best for Voyou.
