interesting about the vitamins. Sending big hugs to Annie. I tap Jenny's food bowl on the floor. On her good days she doesn't need me to at all!

I sure hope this is a transitory thing.

CraigM asked: Are others using vitamin C & E supplements?

I would also be interested in knowing if anyone is using Vitamin C & E supplements. The only thing my Vet recommended was Vitamin B12.

Poor little Annie. Hope you get good news and it is just a passing thing.

I know you test regularly and that Annie threw you some high numbers at odd times. Any correlation between days where her BG's were higher and those days that she visited the doc and the eye pressure was high?

I gave Buddy Vit E and Omega 3. He was also blind and it happened in a matter of days. Never heard about C for a dog.

Good luck with your little one Craig

Not really. We only took fasting tests on the 4th and 5th and she was in the 150 area at breakfast, and 250ish in the evening. Yesterday, her morning test was 177 and evening test was a higher 355. Of course, don't know if the 355 was due to more excitement, less excitement, the additional eye drops, vitamins, or just one of those things. We are about to test in a few minutes.

I went out in the yard to rescue her a few minutes ago. She ran into the yard normally to do her "business", but got lost walking through the garden. She seems to have the house pretty much mapped out and is just a little slower than before.

We figured this would happen some day, just not so fast!

Keep us posted. This is one of my greatest fears and I am definitely dreading it too!

Aw, Craig...am so sorry to hear about Annie's eyes! Is the pressure painful to her? I hope the drops will help. Guess it will happen to a lot of us but is still hard. Hugs!

Gutwrenching the first time it happens isn't it?. Proof that even with your extreme diligence, sometimes we just can't prevent this from happening.

That's when we realized that the yard was not <accident proof<. We built a wall on the side of the ramp (after Buddy went right out and fell off), removed a rose bush (after Buddy ended up being pricked by the thorns), we removed some of the pointed rocks (you guessed it, he ended up stuck in there). I don't know the kind of winter you get where you live but in the winter, Ron would plow some paths in the backyard and eventually Buddy learned where they were otherwise, he'd end up being stuck in a snow bank.

Let's hope little Annie gets her <spunk< back.

Louise
