Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
She will be two in October. She is a Min Pin and doesn't show any signs of pain. I can touch them without getting bitten, which says a lot for her.
What kind of immune-mediated component are you referring to? I've researched progressive retinal atrophy (which is one of the inherited diseases that I was told accompanies that breed) and it doesn't seem related. The eye itself is clear and she appears to see normally. She still travels at a 1000 miles a minute, like she's been shot from a cannon. The appetite is fine, no rapid heart rate, no panting and no crying out.
She does like to hang her head out of the car window when traveling, what are the odds of getting bit by something flying through the air in the opposite eye? I've had dogs hang their heads out for years, even ones with much bigger heads (bigger targets) and haven't had this problem.
I hope so. She is our baby and we would be heart broken if anything happened to her. We have an appointment tomorrow and I will mention what I've learned from here. Thank you so much for your help and concern.
