On Tuesday, July 8, 2008 Bunny Roo had to have her eye
removed. When I adopted Bunny Roo she had a cataract on her
left eye. I was told that it was not causing her any pain, however,
she could not see out of that eye and it may cause problems in
the future. Well, they were right. The cataract caused Glaucoma
which in turn, caused her eye to swell and the lense to
disconnect. She had emergency eye surgery and the entire eye
was taken out. I am happy to report that Bunny Roo did VERY
WELL!! She is a strong, healthy Beagle and came through with
flying colors! She is already home, eating and resting
comfortably! Below are some links about cataracts and
Glaucoma. Here's to your health! Woof!
It has been seventeen days since Bunny Roo Beagle had her eye removed. I am happy to report that she is
better than ever! She had her stitches taken out and is 100% back to her old self. Yes, her favorite past-time is
Roo's good side!
Bunny Roo passed away a few months after her eye was removed. Her death had nothing to do with her eye
condition. Hopefully, sharing Bunny Roo's story about her battle with glaucoma will help other dogs. May Roo
rest in peace! I miss her dearly. To read more about glaucoma in dogs and to see more pictures please clickhere.
