Precious little angel. I'm so happy and relieved he's safe.
My question is - why is it better to remove the eyes? Will he realize his eyes are gone? Is there any danger in blind eyes? Sorry for sounding dumb....

Hoping all goes well with his surgery,Bron. I'm so sorry that he was in pain from his eyes. Hoping that the drops are helping that too. He looks like such a cute little guy but have to say that eye is so out of proportion. It hurts me to look at it knowing he's in pain from it.

he is blind in both eyes and the pressure drops will most likely stop working eventually and it leaves him open to pain and suffering in the future. Since his eyes don't work, it is usually considered the best plan to remove then and forever give him comfort.

Thank you for a reply. I didn't know that. I knew that for example shih-tzus suffer with the eye problems and I knew about eye-removing due to the cancer. This is a new info for me. As I say - I learn something new every day.
Thanks again.

I'm so sorry this little one is going through this! I hope he can have his surgery soon and that whatever choice is made for him is the right one!

I will be donating to the cause and will keep checking for updates.

Bron,

Yup, his left eye is huge, and I'm sure has been painful.

Just makes me sick. Thinking of the pain, and how long this has been going on.

I want him

Give him loves from me,

Deb

Dear Deb, have missed you! Hope you and your brood are doing well. Isn't little Max just adorable?! He is doing very well after his neuter and dental. Have you seen the latest video of him that Bron made? You will die. You are so wonderful to offer to help. I was thinking he would make a great boyfriend for Jops, LOL. XOXO
