My dearly loved precious Lhasa Apso, Katie, is in the advanced stage of Pigmentary Keratitis - a build up of pigment in the eyes, which has caused her to go blind. We have tried a treatment with drops (Maxitrol) to retard the progress, but the time has come when the condition is so far advanced that we now believe she has lost virtually all of her sight.
So far, she has adapted amazingly well. We have been making sure she gets as much help as she needs, for example we have made sure she has 'her' pathways to negotiate the home safely, she knows where everything is and she knows we won't move anything around. She shares her home with our younger (sighted) little friend, Poppy who is a Lhasa/Shih Tzu cross, who has been a wonderful help - she even guides Katie when they go up to the garden.
Katie seems to be a little more 'lost' though, these past couple of days. She seems to veer off track, is sitting barking for no reason we can eliminate and we would value all advice:-)
