Our red girl who is 12 suddenly went blind, it happened quickly with in a couple of days. It turns put she has SARDs. Sudden retinal detachment or something. It untreatable. We found out from her breeder that her brother went blind from it two years ago.
Other than that she seems healthy. We took her to the vet and he said she was in excellent health.
She is doing pretty well with it. She sometimes gets lost or just stands there facing a wall. It was very sad at first, but we are trying to not baby her too much.
We are trying to treat her normally and are helping her where we can. She used to bang on the door to go potty outside, but now she gets antsy and walks around like she is lost or looking for something.
We have to be with outside, with the snow and sub zero cold now, even more.
She also seems to need more petting and enjoys being massaged ( I guess a benefit for us.
Anyone else have a blind basenji?
