Customer Question

JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Beau
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Beau?
Customer: catch him just staring, and doesn't seem to see as well. I have another dog who is also 18 and he is completely blind but does well considering I will take beau out in the yard. example he was out in the yard for 15 minutes never pooped and came in the house and immediately pooped in two places

Has this always been a concern for Beau or just recently?

When was bloodwork last performed?

When did he go blind? Has the cause been determined?
