Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name is***** and I'm happy to help answer your questions regarding Daisy. I'm sorry to hear she has developed glaucoma in both eyes- I can understand why you're upset. Do you feel that the pain medication and eye drops are bringing her relief?
Glaucoma can absolutely be a very painful condition, and I can certainly understand why you are upset if you don't feel that the pain medications are helping her. There are both topical and oral medications that can help manage the pain, but if it is not enough to help her have a good quality of life, then enucleation (surgery to remove one or both eyes) may be a viable option for her. Many dogs can do very well without being able to see, particularly if they are more comfortable that way. Just make sure your veterinarian feels that she is a safe anesthetic candidate by listening carefully to her heart and performing pre-anesthetic labwork if enucleation is the route you choose to go. Good luck to your and your Bichon!
