Roxy went to the vet today to test her vision in her left eye. Prognosis wasn't good; she is deemed blind due to pupil distortion from the cataract. Only option now is to remove both of her eyes surgically (enucleation) to avoid the onslaught of glaucoma attacking the left eye (which is already showing symptoms) so far it stands $300-600 each eye for surgical removal; $900 each eye to put in prosthetics. This procedure will ensure Roxy will never suffer from excruciating pain or diseases from BOTH EYES for the rest of her life! Again please show your support by donating and sharing this with your family and friends.

Thank you!

Per my Vet's request, I checked Roxy's eye with a light and unfortunately the cataract has harden to the point of ruining her pupil...it will not constrict or dilate. I will divert her donations to remove her eyes and replace them with prosthetics since she can still get glaucoma in that eye along with other serious eye issues plus excruciating pain that doesn't go away until the eye is removed. :(

I am so sad that it is too late to save her vision but at least I can approve her quality of life pain-free.

I adopted/rescued Roxy at the local county shelter in early October 2012. Despite knowing much about Cocker Spaniels and their eye issues, I decided to keep Roxy anyway. I would always take her out to the dog parks every weekend to play fetch and I came to notice that if I threw the ball at a certain angle, she wouldn't see it. On the day of Thanksgiving, completely out of nowhere, her right eye had gotten really swollen with lots of discharge. After dishing out $300-400 in ER/Vet visits, she was diagnosed with primary glaucoma in her right eye and at the same time I found her left eye had a cataract that pretty much made her half-blind until the glaucoma came around. I've spent $500 alone treating the glaucoma and it's no longer an issue for her now. If money was no object, I would have had that cataract removed from her left eye to at least partially restore her vision which is why I turned to this website to seek help on getting funding for her cataract surgery. I cannot no longer sit on the sidelines and watch my dog mope in depression because she can't play like all the other regular dogs and/or watch her run aimlessly into objects around her! Please note that canine cataract surgery can cost up to $3000 per eye so any donation is greatly appreciated!!


Roxy also appreciates it and says "RANK ROO!!!!!"
