Miss Bella

Dachshund

10 years, 2 months
  Female

Dallas, TX

 

Miss Bella came to us with several dogs when their owner passed away unexpectedly. Bella is very cute but she was allowed to become obese so she has difficulty moving around. She's currently on a weight-loss plan, which will help her a lot with mobility. Miss Bella also came with another problem. Initially diagnosed as entropion (eyelid curved inward and scraping the cornea), we have since also found out that Bella has severe "dry eye", meaning that her tear ducts don't function in that eye. She already has no vision in the eye, so it's been recommened that we have it surgically removed. That's not going to effect Bella's vision at all, and she should actually be more comfortable after the procedure- she will no longer have the pain and itching she has now.
UPDATE- We are working with topical medication in hopes the tear ducts can be stimulated and the "third eyelid" will become less inflamed, allowing us to have entropion surgery done so Miss Bella can keep the eye (even though it won't see, it's easier procedurally and cosmetically). We will keep you posted over the next couple weeks. Meanwhile, this sweet lady is still quite chubby so we're continuing work on her diet.
