View Full Version : Glaucoma in younger dog


August 12th 07, 05:43 PM
Does anyone have a dog who got glaucoma when he/she was really young?
My mother-in-law has a dog who was recently diagnosed with it and he's
only 2 at the most. He has lost sight in one eye and most of it in the
other eye. Also, has anyone had a younger dog who went completely
blind and adapted well? She has heard that they often become
aggressive if they lose their sight. He is a sweet dog now and we hate
to see this happening to him. Also, anyone know what causes glaucoma
in younger dogs? He is seeing a specialist but so far tests have not
turned up any other diseases.

Not that you won't get your fill of intelligent/enlightening answers from
all of the dog lovers in this group, but you might also want to try
posting to a forum with "dogs" in the name of the group.

Ok, I'm an idiot. I thought I was in that forum. Oops!! This is what
sleep deprivation will do to you, LOL.
