DeeDee is our latest Suri's Shining Star. She is a special needs girl who suffered from rapid onset of glaucoma, caused by inbreeding and genetic abnormalities. We were told she was blind. That she is but we found out that the eye pressure on both her eyes were four times normal and the chance of them bursting was likely. During the time glaucoma set in and the pressure increased, poor DeeDee had to suffer an extraordinary about of pain from the pressure. We figure it was at least a year of pain. DeeDee has now had both eyes removed and she's a new dog. She's quickly learning several verbal commands and adjusting to navigating around her space quite well. All the while with her tail awagging!
DeeDee will be spayed, heartworm check, rabies and receive her distempter/parvo and bordetella vaccines on 1/14. Depending on how well she recovers from her spay, she'll be ready for adoption thereafter.
