My old Staffy/Bullmastiff cross has now gone blind in her second eye. :(
All my pets seem to have aged together. First my old 17 year old cat, Robbie, who I had to have put down last month.... and now Ellie.
I'm hoping she'll be able to adapt to it over the next few weeks. The vet has given her something to help her to feel less anxious while she makes the transition. He says some dogs adapt.... and some struggle. Unfortunatley there's no magic pill or operation that can put her right. I've just got to keep my fingers crossed for her. :fingers_crossed: I just hope she'll be O.K. :unsure2:

Here she is in her prime. x

Aww Kelly, :( I'm so sorry to hear this about Ellie. I hope she is able to cope and it doesn't affect her quality of life too much. But she is in the best care with you.
Kind Regards
