I am sorry to hear about Penny's blindness. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. My name is Rebecca.

Why is she going blind? Does she have cataracts, or dry eye? There are some kinds of blindness that can be treated, others that cannot.

When a dog goes blind from things we can't fix, the best thing is to keep routines the same. Do not move furniture, she will learn and remember where things are. Blind dogs usually get very comfortable being walked on a leash once they learn that you are their eyes.
