Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Sorry to hear about your Daschund. Is he on any medications currently? Does he still have his sight as far as you can tell?
Can you tell me which eye drops he is on? When I have dealt with serious cases of glaucoma I have tried several types of eye drops which some have helped. The most common ones I have used were Xalatan and Dorzoalamide. Also I have sent dogs to eye specialist who have been able to draw fluid from the back of the eye and give injections in the eye which has helped as well. It can be more challenging to treat once they are blind but the only purpose for removing the eye is if he is in so much pain or the eye is bulging
