Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I've been a veterinarian for 15 years. Thank you for your question about your girl Midge. One of the best things that can be done at this time is to get her to your vet for an evaluation to determine the specific cause for her to be not as visual. Something may be found that can be slowed down, stopped or reversed. Could it be pigmentation on the cornea from chronic irritation from a decreased tear production? Could it be cataracts? Could it be a retinal degeneration? These are some initial ideas that I would have for her situation. As far as her decreased hearing, the most common thing there could be chronic ear issues / infections that have caused a narrowing of the ear canal. If this is the case, then treatment for it is needed.
I want to make sure I help as much as I can with any questions you have. Can you let me know what others have come up?
