Their dog had a litter of puppies, and they couldn't keep all of them. When I got home I took her for a walk around our complex to try cheer her up after giving her eye drops which she hates. But knowing now that it was a cornea scratch and it was the eye leaking through the scratch and not the puss and gunk draining, well,. Shih Tzus, while cute and extremely social, are a high maintenance breed. When we came home from work and school, she wasn't running to greet us at the door. I am glad that the information here helps.
The good news is that dogs can quite easily adapt to life with one eye and live long, . Follow any post-op care instructions provided by your vet, including.
I feel so worthless Oh yea- high energy. The pain medicine could be throwing her off balance a little. She never really cried or barked at night. The money is better off going to a shelter so true! She wants to walk farther when we go potty walk. Thank you so much for starting this website.

Does a one-eyed dog need any special care in terms of its' missing?
In that case it takes alot of time and patience to get her to personality 1 stated above. That being said, I just want him to be healthy and free from any discomfort. She bonded to our other animals so intensely that it seemed almost too perfect. It sounds as though Toby contributes greatly to your quality of life, and that should be in your mind, too.

The reply we on this site helped make us stronger. My 7 year old pug had a cancerous tumor on his eyelid. I got to meet and pet Stevie and Helen. I thought about those Christmas lights in tubes, to line the stairs so she can see them…kind of like the lights that line a movie theater isle…?
