My 12 year old male white Schnauzer is starting to shed. He went blind about two weeks ago. Does his shedding have anything to do with his blindness. He also has diabetes. Thank you so much

sorry to hear your news

sorry to hear your news.
Diabetes mellitus often causes hair loss and skin infections, so keep an eye on your old fellow for signs of infection. You might want to add an Omega 3 fish oil supplement to his food to help his skin.
Dogs can cope much better without eyesight than we can. Their other senses are heightened.
Take good care of your old friend.
Best wishes,
Linda and Max
