Hi! I'm a new member. I joined because I am very concerned about my 2 1/2 year old Havanese, Boomer. Boomer had cataract surgery when he turned 1 year old. He had his vision up to 6 months ago and is now permanently blind. His right eye swelled shut and when it opened it was filled with blood. It seems the pressure in his eyes is dangerously high and he is in considerable pain. He is suffering everyday from the pain, he is 2 1/2 and sleeps, growls, bites and isn't very happy. He has been on pain meds, since Friday and meds to reduce the pressure. This is a vicious cycle that will continue to repeat. The Dr strongly suggested that we get his eyes removed to alleviate the pain once and for all. On Oct 3, he is scheduled to have both eyes removed.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? I am so concerned, that once his eyes are gone, I won't feel anything towards him. I am so freaked out by this. Your yes are the windows to your soul, so if you have no eyes how do you see his soul?
I appreciate any advise.
