Our vet is the best!! Dr.Shaw & Dr.Welland in Victoria. Do you know of any Opthomologist? We have been researching as much as I can regarding Cherry Eye since my 6 month old Bullmastiff had this surgically repaired. Do you have any more information on Cherry Eye and is Cherry Eye Hereditary/Genetic? Thanks Andrew aholenchuk@shaw.ca

Our 2 year old Ger. Shep./Collie got loose and came back the next afternoon with his eyes swollen and scratched up. He is not able to see now. The vet thought an animal attacked him, now he thinks after 10 days, that he may have been sprayed with something. His one eye is now milky white and the other is cloudy. Antibotic creams and pills have been dispensed. Is there hope of his eyes ever returning back, or is it hopeless. We don't have alot of money, but we love our Buddy and would pay payments or something if we could help get his sight back. I am desperate for information on this.

I cannot fathom a vet that would demand payment before seeing any animal, I have had 2 bad experiences with local vets after moving 12 miles away from my previous one, I have since gone back to him and he was able to have a surgeon come to his office and repair my Akitas' blown knee.I will never go to another vet and if anyone is ever in need of a really terrific vet in the Owosso Michigan area checkout Dr. Rangi @ Pinecrest Animal Hospital.I would also like to say that I am sorry for the loss of your cat and wished that neither of had to go through that.

Hello: This story is not about a dog; blind or sighted. BUT, after reading the posts, I thought I would post. Two days ago, my cat suddenly had SEVERE pain. I had NO idea what was wrong. He was an indoor cat, up-to-date on vaccines, neutered, and fine. I phoned the vet who neutered him and informed them that there had to be something VERY wrong. I was told, "The vet can not see your cat unless you can pay in full TODAY." I never owed him any money! My cat's pain became unbearable and I was hysterical. I phoned them again and PLEADED with them to see him. Again, not unless I had ALL the almighty dollars with me. I phoned other vets; they refused because my cat wasn't a regular patient. My cat died a very SLOW and EXTREMELY PAINFUL death in my kitchen. NOTHING can justify this! NOTHING!!! I live in PA, and can not afford an attorney. Any suggestions? God bless all of you.

Re: specialist in Arkansas http://www.animalophth.com/welcome.cfm Dr. Miller sees patients in Memphis. I believe he also has some office time in Little Rock & Jackson MS. Harley, our pound puppy cocker sees him. He's very good with the animals and no nonsense or beating around the bushes with the owners.

Merdeka It is upsetting to here comments like this, but unfortunatly Vets like this do exist,even though it is mandatory for vets to do continuing edu.every year. Mors states than not also have vet techs do the same. Those thatdo not,are all trying to pass those laws. I live in one of those state,and have a full edu.for this career,and hope that the law is passed.Then those people off the street cannot do my job w/o schooling. If you are ever not happy with the vet you see,always know you have the right to a second opinion..All the good vets out there will respect that. Very sorry for your loss.

Lucy, Chronic ear infections can occur from allergies. Many breeds are prone to this. Have you done a hypoallergenic food trial? This means feeding a prescription food for at least 6 weeks.NOTHING else.no treats,no table food,nothing.Sometimes it's trial and error to find the right food for your pet, but when you find it,it usually does the trick. And can many times bring relief to your painful pet!

the vet who handled my dearest and precious dog's last sickness displayed such appaling negligence that it resulted in his death.He also displayed a totally unacceptable level of vet science that I know that immediate legislation must be passed to demand that all vets and vet techs undergo mandatory continuing education each and every year.I believe that this vet and his type should be penalized severly for the hell that we are going through.

There is a very good canine opthamologist in Monroeville, PA Staci. I have gone to him several times for my blind sheltie. E-mail me at cneese@winbeam.com and I will give you the particulars. Are you sure the deposits are calcium? They may be cholesteroldeposits.

Both of our dogs (a blacl lab and a semi- Australian shepard) have had CHRONIC ear infections. We just moved to Fairfield, Ca., so we need a vet. Beyond that has anyone had any success in getting rid of ear infections? We've treated our dogs for YEARS - the infection never seems to be 100% cured. Any help would be greatly appreciated by both of our friends!

I have a 12 yr old corgi with and indolent eye ulcer that won't heal despite sewn eyelids and an elizabethan collar. He has been wearing the collar for six weeks now and in the meantime has had an operation for pyogranulomatous panniculitis. Our vet suggests having his eye removed. He has a heart murmer and a touch of arthritis. Would this be the right way to go? What questions should I be asking?

Claire wrote:

It is important to feel comfortable with your vet. Always ask questions before accepting their final word. Having experienced a serious eye condition with my dog, I have saved her from losing her eyesite from negligence. Vets are people, too, and make mistakes. If you're not satisfied with his/her opinion, do not be afraid to seek another one. Also, research your pet's condition, medicines, so forth. This will save future problems for both you and your pet.

hello please help me, i have two 5 month old pups they are rottweiler/lab mix and i wanted to donate them so they could be trained to help the blind or handicapped. Stasia Spears 373 wilson st bigelow ar 72016 P.S.- MUST BE GONE BY SATURDAY JULY 3.

Melissa wrote:

My vet scheduled the eye removal and then decided that she wasnt getting enough money or something because now she is not going to do it. She wants me to go to all these expensive places and get all this medicine that I can't afford, take more tmie off work and possibly lose my job and that. I am going to take my dog to another vet to see what he says - it is quite frustrating. I know she could lose her other eye as well but I also know from this forum that there are alot of blind dogs in the world! I am trying to find my dog a companion to be her seeing eye dog :)

I need the names of canine opthamologists in the states surrounding Arkansas. Our Lab has the symptoms of prcd and needs to be examined, but none of these specialists are available in Arkansas. Help!!

Ann wrote:

Our Lab has the symptoms of prcd: night blindness that is progressing to include low-lighting. Net-research leads me to believe this is hopeless, that he will go blind. I would like to take him to an opthamologist but there are none here in Arkansas. Will someone please send me names of any vet-opthamologists in the surrounding states? I will really appreciate it.

The reason I wasnt to know is because I am doing a science fair project and I am doing my project o n dogs. And my question would be " can different breeds of dogs react to the same sounds differently and different sounds the same?"

Tetley Doyle wrote:

Hhhmmm. Im not to happy with vets at the moment and neither is my Mum. I think that when you go to a vet and the vet gives you (or your parent) an opinion, you shoul dbe able to rely on that opinion. After all, that's why they were at Vet School for so long. But, in my case, 2 vets said that my and my litter had cataracts when we were 4 weeks old but as time went on, they 'disappeared'. Scary. Obviously, this was a mis-diagnosis, and the outcome has been favourable, but it caused an awful lot of heartache and hard work for my Mum and her helpers in the doggie rescue because they had to set about finding extra special homes for puppies with cataracts.

There are good vets, and there are some not so good. An eye vet would be able to diagnose more accuratly, and save money in the long run.
