A Thank You and an Update on Boo Boo

I thought I would update and thank everyone for being so supportive when too my horror Boo Boo developed a secondary glaucoma, I think out of everything I have been through with my dogs, that includes my last little shih tzu who had three eye operations the first when the eye ball popped out (proptosis) and two other injuries that were all fixed with only slight loss of vision. Boo Boo’s last episode was the scariest because of this age and all of his other medical problems and it looked worse then proptosis in that the swelling was so much and the bleeding in the eye! Thank you all for being there and especially on the day I went back to the Vet to see if he would lose that eye, because his heart is much enlarged. It was great to have voices out there.

Boo Boo is doing great and he recovered his eye, no he is still blind PRA is for life, but the eye drained the swelling is controlled and it is still the big brown eye it was before (no lens), this is considered an eye recovery and if he was sighted he may well have retained his sight. He is doing well on his eye medications that are given at the same time every morning. The Vet’s now think the Glaucoma is due to the prednisone he takes for his Addison’s. Thanks again and I hope this never happens to any of your dogs, just know it’s not the end of the world.
As for Boo Boo he was always a pain in the butt and in old age he is living up to that standard.
