Best med. for dog with pressure high in eye?
lenses displaced from glaucoma.tryed travatan and azopt Asked by Merrill Rieth 2 years ago.

Have you seen a vet yet? I would, asking here will get you all kinds of answers and maybe not the right ones. Please take your dog to the vet, they can help with the pressure and to make sure your dog is okay. I am not putting anyone's answers down at all, but I would not waste time asking here.Good luck to you. Answered by Jodi Borjon 2 years ago.

I'm not a vet, but it might require surgery. Answered by Theola Bennick 2 years ago.

My Chow Chow dog has glaucoma. The eye doc put him on a myriad of eye meds. The only 1 that has any impact is?
I have 5 Chows and have had dogs my entire life, so thanks for the concern, but I am not traumatized, lol.

Asked by Napoleon Benavides 2 years ago.

Travatan is the only one that makes a difference (lowered his IOP to 25 from 53), but it really bothers his eye. I tried giving him some Visine to sooth and I think it helped a bit. Any better ideas (conventional or holisitic) on how to help him tolerate this drug better? I really appreciate it, this is so traumatic for him! He loves to sit out in the yard and watch the squirrels and the thought of him losing his sight so soon (6 years old) is tragic. Answered by Sherril Espina 2 years ago.

He is on the following- NeoPolydex Azopt Demacarium Dipiverfrin Timolol Travatan Yes, I give all drops at least 5 minutes apart. The doc said to give the Neo first and them the Travatan and is still inflamed his eye. As you can see by all of the meds, this is a last ditch effort, hence my question as the Travatan is all that has made a difference. Thanks! Answered by Ladonna Veeder 2 years ago.

Bothers it how? If there is inflammation, your vet should have sent home some prednisolone drops, as well. We have used Xalatan (which appears to be a "cousin" to Travatan) on our glaucoma dogs, and I've never seen any eye irritation. Another good med for IOP is Azopt, although it doesn't work quite as well as the Xalatan. Please be careful when mixing over-the-counter drops with the Rx drops. The ingredients in the Visine may affect the effectiveness of the other meds. Ask your vet if it's okay to be using the Visine and, of course, always give the different drops at least 5 minutes apart. If there were any holistic way to treat glaucoma, I'd certainly be interested, as well...but unfortunately, the only solution seems to be the drops. ADD: Hmmm. My ophthalmic vet would have prescribed the Prednisolone over the NeoPolyDex. Neopoly doesn't really help with the inflammation...I use it (with the Timolol) as a preventative for my dog's *good* eye, which (according to the drainage angle) has a pretty good chance of also closing off in the future. :( Glaucoma blows. It really does. You really might want to ask your vet about the Pred drops. They really help with inflammation. Answered by Karl Antunes 2 years ago.

Glaucoma Drops For Dogs Answered by Georgiann Purviance 2 years ago.

If the drug bothers the dog's eye, tell your Vet and perhaps there is still another drug to help him. Don't mix drugs, like the Visine with Glaucoma meds. My husband has Glaucoma and his eye drops don't hurt him at all. So, hopefully, your Vet can find a better product. Answered by Sommer Duggin 2 years ago.

Sorry, however Chows are not a well breed for first-time house owners. Chow Chows are dominant, can also be cussed and tough to instruct, and of path their coat demands plenty of labor. I'd appear somewhere else for a primary-time puppy. Good good fortune. Answered by Susana Pierro 2 years ago.

Does the vet know you're using Visine? I'd check with him/ her about that. Dogs really aren't traumatized by blindness. My Cocker lived five years with no vision. We even had to move, and he had to get used to a new home. His true happiness was in his relationship with our family, so it really wasn't hard on him. It sounds like you're the one who's traumatized. Answered by Anthony Catrini 2 years ago.

Sleeping in touch lenses lowers the volume of oxygen getting via on your eyes, as a result placing you at a bigger danger for eye infections. The simplest approach to inform whether it is an illness or if you happen to quite simply indignant your eyes is to visit an eye fixed surgeon. If it's an illness it's fundamental to have it checked out instantly; a few forms of infections can get very extreme and purpose scarring and blindness. There are distinct manufacturers of contacts that may be accurately slept in (made from more moderen, extra breathable elements) however you have to speak together with your surgeon to look if you are a well candidate.

My friend's son has Axenfeld-Reigers Anomaly.We are having a difficult time finding information..?
We are just mainly finding links to other people who are trying to find answer's too. If we do find something, it's very minimal information. If someone knows a good site for this specific anomaly please pass it on.....thank you Asked by Melinda Blasi 2 years ago.

Signs and Symptoms Patients displaying Axenfeld-Rieger (A-R) syndrome are generally asymptomatic. The condition is diagnosed based upon findings from routine biomicroscopic and gonioscopic evaluation. Historically, this condition was incorporated under the broader heading of anterior chamber cleavage syndromes, and included Axenfeld’s anomaly, Axenfeld’s syndrome, Rieger’s anomaly, and Rieger’s syndrome. Current theory now holds that these conditions are probably a continuum of a single developmental disorder, hence the name Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome. This anterior segment disorder always presents with posterior embryotoxon (a prominent, anteriorly displaced Schwalbe’s line) and one or more of the following findings: iris strands adherent to Schwalbe’s line, iris hypoplasia, focal iris atrophy with hole formation, corectopia, and ectropion uveae. Glaucoma may develop in approximately 50 percent of patients with A-R syndrome, but is more common in those with central iris changes and pronounced anterior iris insertion. Non-ocular manifestations of A-R syndrome may include developmental defects of the teeth and facial bones, pituitary anomalies, cardiac disease, oculocutaneous albinism, and redundant periumbilical skin. A-R syndrome is always bilateral but may be markedly asymmetric. The condition appears to be hereditary, displaying an autosomal dominant inheritance pattern with variable expression. Pathogenesis There has been much speculation as to the embryonic pathogenesis of A-R syndrome. The current and most widely held theory suggests a developmental arrest of specific anterior segment tissues derived from neural crest cells, which apparently occurs late in gestation. It is not understood why such a developmental arrest occurs, but the result is the retention of a primordial endothelial cell layer on portions of the iris and angle structures. Contraction of these endothelial "membranes" leads to the associated abnormalities in form and function of the anterior segment structures. Presumably, this same developmental arrest can affect other organ systems, resulting in orofacial and other anomalies sometimes encountered in A-R syndrome. Management A-R syndrome, a congenital disorder, generally requires little therapeutic intervention. In those instances where iris atrophy results in pseudopolycoria, patients may be fitted with opaque, cosmetic contact lenses to improve their appearance and decrease optical aberrations. The greatest concern in patients with A-R syndrome is the development of secondary glaucoma. In most cases, those who develop glaucoma do so in childhood or early adulthood. Still, patients must be monitored throughout life for elevations in intraocular pressure and optic nerve head changes. Glaucoma therapy for patients with A-R syndrome follows the same therapeutic algorithm as for primary open angle glaucoma, however miotics are reported to be less effective in this condition. Typical therapy begins with topical -blockers (e.g., Betoptic-S) or topical carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (e.g., Azopt). Unfortunately, many of these glaucoma cases become recalcitrant, and surgical intervention is often necessary. Clinical Pearls Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome is described as a rare, congenital ocular disorder. Still, these authors have encountered many patients with manifestations of A-R syndrome, some of which are exceedingly subtle. In general, A-R syndrome is more academically interesting than it is clinically challenging. Glaucoma must be a concern in every patient presenting with this disorder. In fact, when glaucoma does occur, it can be quite severe. In addition, patients with A-R syndrome should undergo both a comprehensive medical and dental evaluation to rule out non-ocular manifestations. Because of the known inheritance pattern and variable expression, recommend ocular evaluation for all family members when you detect A-R syndrome.
