Re: Re: chat messages

Kitty:  Is that a glaucoma or something your poor Braveheart is getting?  Is that what is causing his cornea to tilt?  Poor baby!

That's sad, Melody. I had a similar situation with a German Shepherd
years<br>ago, though he never hurt the cats. I had to put him down and
it was so<br>hard. The cats accidents occurred at a young age, so I
expect they learned<br>to cope and have taken it more or less in
stride.<br><br>You mentioned the peripheral vision problem. Braveheart
has always had<br>trouble with one eye and it was so cloudy I figured he
could no longer see<br>out of it. Today he got his flea shot and the vet
noticed the cornea was<br>now tilted back. He said I should watch to be
sure it doesn't tilt forward<br>because the eye could blow if it did.

the dog put down. Turned out every one of his litter mates had been
put<br>> down for brain tumors that resulted in unprovoked aggression
and the vet<br>> thinks this is what happened with him. Almost killed me
to put that dog<br>> to sleep but I couldn't bear the thought of this
great big gentle dog<br>> whom we loved so much turning into a monster
and being left with the<br>> memory of him mauling a kid or something.
Funny thing is, every dog<br>> we've had since we've been looking for

cursed when it comes to big<br>> dogs...<br>><br>><br>><br>> Melody, IA
