diabetic mini schnauzer with cataracts going blind
Sonny is seven years old and was diagnosed with diabetes about 2 years ago. we started him on insulin right away. the last few weeks we noticed more and more that his sight is fading. his eyes look cloudy and we belive it's cataracts. has anyone gone through the same problems with their mini schnauzer?
What was the outcome and what are the costs on cataracs surgery?
NOTE FROM LINDA AND MX:
So sorry to hear about Sonny. Take a look on our page about canine cataracts here:
for more information.
If the worst does come to the worst and Sonny's eyesight continues to deteriorate, you may be interested to know that many dogs do live happy lives with little or no eyesight.
If you think this may be happening to Sonny, start taking him on a regular walk on a leash so he gets used to a familiar route with familiar sounds and smells so that if his eyesight does worsen, he will already be used to the route and know his way around.
We wish you and Sonny the best of luck.
