Hello dogster friends, it's been awhile!
I guess I should start by saying that I was diagnosed with what's called Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency about a year and a half ago. It's a disease that causes my body to not absorb any fat, so no matter how much I eat, I still don't gain much weight. My mommy got me a supplement that makes my pancreas start doing it's job again, so I can absorb my food. It's helped me put on a few pounds.
But lately I haven't been seeing so well. Everything is just kind of blurry. My mommy noticed it when I started to bark at her and my other family. I couldn't see them very well, and I thought they were strangers!
So I went to the vet, and they found some hazy areas in my eyes, so they told my mommy I should see an eye doctor.
The next day we went. It was a far drive, but it was just me and Mommy, so it was nice. All the ladies at the eye doctor were nice to me and gave me lot's of cookies. They told my Mommy the hazy spots were either genetic, or they were deposits of fat in my corneas due to too much fat in my blood. Because of my pancreas problem, the second reason was the most likely. the next day I had to go back to the vet and get my blood drawn so they could run some tests to find out if it was my EPI causing the problem.
Mommy says we will find out in a few days, so cross your paws for me that its my EPI and not a genetic problem. If it's genetic then I will never be able to see clearly again! :(
