Bad news about Coco...

She has a birth defect and her right eye never fully developed and she has upwards of an 80% chance of developing Glaucoma and going blind. As of right now her vision is fine and there is no discomfort. We will be keeping watch on her eyes and starting medication to reduce the fluid production and if/when things progress, she will be having a valve and shunt put in her eye to drain the excess fluid and try to save her eyesight.

I'm sorry to hear the news about Coco.  :(  Hopefully the fluid will not build up and you won't need to drain it. Extra hugs for Coco today!

Oh, kisses for Coco. I hope she doesn't need to have it drained either. Just curious what were the signs that leaded up to this or did the vet notice something?

Oh poor baby. Sending you healing energy and hopes it doesn't progress.

Have you contacted the breeder about it? Have they ever dealt with this problem before?

Hugs and kisses to Coco. And hugs to you.

Contacted breeder and they say there have been no other issues, they were sorry I have a "deformed" pup and if i wanted to return her they would give me my money back. Ugh, NOOO!
