My 9 yr old schnauzer was drinking 3-4 bowls water a day plus wetting the bed at times, being a concerned loving mother of this wonderful little guy we went to the vet and was told he had disbetes, his sugar level top 465, put on insulin daily,37 cc., he was eating better but stills drinks a lot of excess water. That was a month ago by the way, so one morning we got up and he acted strange, confused, I looked into those big brown eyes and could see a milky looking object, rushed to the vet and he said it was catracts , which I was told he had them but the vet was so surprised they had spread that fast in both eyes. Well a few days has passed and I am sad to report he went totally blind last night. He is so confused, scared and bewildered it breaks my heart. I sit and hold and pet him and cry like a baby. I know his time is nearing and it saddens my broken heart so much I can not eat or do anything. He lays on the couch and whimpers, when I have to let him outside I talk real loud so he can follow my voice and have to almost hand feed him. I know it is not right to let him suffer but I cannot find it in my heart just yet to have him put down, I keep hoping and praying his eye sight will come back. I have noticed he has some big bumps on his side and neck, which the vet has never said anything about it but he knows I do not handle thigs well. I will carry him to where ever he wants to go, hand feed him
as long as I can keep him. I am sure I am not in this dreadful boat alone and would appreciate any comment on how they are handling their blind pet.
