Arrival Story: I lost my One Chow to Skin Cancer in November of 2000 after a 3 year battle. 6 months later I was at a mall shopping and saw a pet store and I saw this little black ball of fur in a cage. I thought NO it's a pet store. Don't even look but I did and I went and asked if I could hold her. I held her and asked how much she cost? It was over a thousand dollars. I thought they were crazy.. I left and came back. I thought I have to get her out of that cage. I did. I also did a background History on Molly to see where she came from. She was only 3 months old and the day after I got Molly she had mucus coming out of her nose. I rushed her to the vet and they said where ever she was from she was kept in a cold area or brought in from out of state in a non temperature controlled vehicle. All I could think was "puppy Mill" So I launched my own investigation and Turned them in to the State and turned in the Pet Store. I said they were not only selling Puppy Mill dogs but sick ones. They offered me a refund and they would take her back. I said no.
Bio: Molly is a purbred Chow and was diagnosed in October 2012 with Glaucoma and now she is Blind. Molly was squinting one eye in October 2012 and we rushed Molly to a vet who mis-diagnosed her with a scratched cornea. The vet was wrong and Molly went Blind in one eye within 8 days. I found out it takes mere hours if eye pressure spikes and is not treated correctly. Molly was then seen by a vet EYE specialist and Mis diagnosed again. With the wrong type of Glaucoma. We were told her good eye would have vision after several tests for 32-36 months with proper eye drops. The New eye specialist vet made an error and diagnosed Molly again improperly and only treated the aqueos fluid pressure and not the blood pressure fluid behind her eye. That pressure spiked in December and Molly went blind in Hours. The eye vet was closed it was late at night by 8am she was in the vet office. They hospitalized Molly and worked on her eye with differnt drops and said that the drops did not work and Molly was blind. About 10 days later I thought about taking Molly to a Famous church where their were monks and one used to bring miracles. I asked if They would pray for Molly's vision with "Father Solanus's Relic cross." I brought Molly to the Monastery and the monk took her and I into the church and prayed over Molly with Father Solanus's relic Cross. Molly's vision was back that evening when checked by the vet both of her eyes had normal eye pressure. The vet was quite upset instead of being happy. She I believe took it personally.
In April Molly's eye pressure went up. Once your dog has Glaucoma you easily recognize when their eye pressure is up. In April Molly lost her vision and it has not returned. I do believe Molly had a miracle for 5 months. The eye vet has no explanation for the return of Molly's vision. Please get your pets eyes checked every year. Especially the breeds that are predisposed to Glaucoma and Chows are one Breed and I was never told nor had I ever read about it, I have had more than one Chow and never had eye problems. Regular Vets do not know enough about vision and even many specialists are not well versed. A pets vision can be saved or at least preserved for years with proper diagnosis and treatment. There are also some surgeries that can help with Glaucoma. You need the right Eye Vet Specialist. Please Have your pets vision checked anually or if you suspect sudden onset of squinting or the pet rubbing there eyes against furniture are symptoms. The squinting was Mollys first symptom. We can't save Molly's eyes but hopefully help others know about Pet Glaucoma.
