Blindness Or Impaired Vision experience by - Amanda
Nashville, Tennessee, U.S.A
We got my dog off the side of the road when he was a puppy. Maybe about a year old. And we picked up his "brother" also. Well recently the brother died from unknown causes but since about 5 or 6 years ago my dog Red has been having this swelling over near his eye. We think it's because he usually on a monthly basis got in fights with our other male dogs. But now his eye has become covered and kinda a filmy pearlish color. Now Red looks like the hunch back of notre dame, but only in the face. I'm kinda worried about his other eye because now it's becoming a pearlish color. If any one has any information to help..... Thank you.
