Daisy’s Story


Lovely Daisy is a charming little lady, full of spirit. Recently, Daisy experienced Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration and sadly, this sweet girl has now gone blind. Despite the rapid degeneration of her eyesight, Daisy has continued to live life with enjoyment and enthusiasm.

Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration can affect any dog, normally over the age of 7. The cause of Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration is currently unknown and the effects are not treatable. While Daisy did not experience pain from this disease, the suddenness of going blind did cause her quite a bit of stress.

Along with her degenerative eye sight, Daisy displayed symptoms of Cushing’s Disease. While some dogs with Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration show symptoms of Cushing’s, only some actually have Cushings, others do not and these symptoms will spontaneously go away. At this time, the link between Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration and Cushing’s is unknown. Unfortunately for Daisy, blood tests revealed that she did indeed have Cushing Disease. Daisy was being effected by pituitary dependant Cushings in addition to her Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration, which added to her discomfort.

With diligent care and encouragement from her dedicated owners and vets, Daisy is coping very well with the sudden change in her eyesight and her Cushing’s symptoms are improving.
