I have a 10 year old Pekingese who developed corneal ulcers in both eyes. I have been taking her to her veterinarian every 2 weeks now for 7 weeks and he has prescribed adequan drops 3 times a day, but I don't see much improvement. Could you please provide any suggestions. She is also hearing impaired and I want to try to do everything I can to save her sight, she is very active and I don't want this to lead to blindness for her.
