The medicine and surgery for canine glaucoma are much the same as those used for humans. Unfortunately, the medicine therapy does not ordinarily last nearly as long as for dogs as it does for humans. While Mandoo was successful being treating w/ just eye drops for a bit over a year (longer than most canines), it is already known now that her left eye has shown some issues, the medicine approach will only last a few months or few weeks at best.
The next option is surgery to try to retain the vision she still has in her left eye. Unfortunately, the cost is not cheap, but it is the only option left w/ a high percentage of success to help retain what is left of her sight.
I never considered doing an online fundraiser for this, but after seeing other campaigns for vet bills and costs, thought I may as well try it out. Also, if you'd rather make an "offline" donation (no fees apply), then please let me know and we can set that up, too, of course!
I appreciate anything you might contribute! I'll print up some photos and send out some thank cards, especially on Mandoo's behalf, if you do. :)
*Even if you don't choose to donate, please share this on your facebook, twitter, G+, etc. account/feed and encourage others to do the same.*
