Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Is the blindness sudden and acute?

Are his gums pink or pale/white? Any changes in his breathing rate?

Any gagging, retching, lip licking, drooling or vomiting?

Any abdominal discomfort on palpation?

Any chance of foreign bodies or toxic exposure?
