Health Questions & Answers



I just have a question about my 9 year old Rottweiler. She suddenly went blind almost three weeks ago. I have taken her to three doctors, one being an optometrist an no one could tell me why she suddenly went blind. Her first symptoms were reddened eyes, mucous in eyes, and swollen. They put her on prednisone acetate and it is not helping. I am thinking she is allergic to something and that is what caused her blindness. Her eyes are still reddened and they seem like they are getting swollen again even with the prednisone. I can completely change her diet and get rid of the Nupro supplement I have been giving her for her arthritis. What else can I do if it is a true allergy? I know she may never get her eyesight back, but I am afraid of stopping her Nupro because she moves so much better on it. I am going to try your medication Arthro-IonX and see if that helps her. Any suggestions would be great. I have spent upwards of $800 to try and figure this out and have gotten nowhere except to keep giving her prednisone. Her ALKP was elevated the last visit to the vet at $800. She can't take NSAIDS because that is what raised it before. As soon as I stopped the NSAIDS for her arthritis, her ALKP came back down to normal. I would greatly appreciate any advice as what to do...Thank you so very much!! Belinda

Dear Belinda,

In Chinese medicine the eyes have a connection with the liver. The liver also has a connection with the tendons and ligaments. I would try Arthro-IonX to help stimulate healing. In addition I find it helpful to follow a holistic approach by giving some nutritional supplements to accompany Arthro-IonX. The supplements I recommend are Canine Probiotics, MSM, Vitamin C, and Omega 3,6,9. Arthro-IonX will help the body to better utilize the nutrition for a synergistic response. I would also try acupuncture to help the joints and liver. Chiropractic might be helpful as well to aid the eye redness and help with mobility.

Please let us know how you progress or if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
