Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today.The best case scenario would involve some blood work for her to determine the cause of her symptoms. Blindness is often due to underlying diabetes, which can be regulated. She may also benefit from an exam from an ophthalmologist if this is not due to diabetes. The best way to know the most effective way to approach her situation is definitely going to be at least through a basic exam.As far as knowing when the time is right for allowing her to pass humanely from this world, I recommend that owners think back to when their pet was in the best health. List 10 things out that the pet loved to do such as play fetch, go for car rides, etc. Now, think to today. When you're down to 5 things on the list, you're close to time for euthanasia. When you're down to 2-3, the quality of life is no longer there and its time to put the pet to sleep.Let me know if I can help you further.
