Well we went to the vet today for Bs blue eye.I wasnt sure if it was going to be a cataract or glaucoma.She has quite a bit of intraocular swelling and pressure.Normal numbers are between 10-20.Hers are 31-39 in the right eye and 26-26 in the left.Will be giving eye drops for a week to try and get the swelling down and back once a week to check measurments.Any one else here on Pugslife deal with glaucoma with there pug?I would love to hear about it if so.I only hope she doesnt loose her eye,not too worried about loosing her sight as she will manage but surgery to remove the eye would be tough as she is 10yrs.Let hope the drops help!

Thank you Keren..she goes in next tues.4 days on the drops so far and they look the same.But i dont know how fast they usually start working do you?To me the inside of her eye looks bigger,and weird kinda goopy with the drops.If you can tell me about Soufles treatment and how long she had it,how fast till the eye needed removed that would be great,but i understand if you cant.

I've been thinking about you and Bella. When is her recheck?

Oh Pugnacious I am so sorry to hear about Bella, I too hope that the drops work but I would say that our Henry had to be castrated at age 10 and he went on to love for another 4 years so I would agree that an other wise  healthy dog and take surgery should she need it and I pray she does not.

I hope the drops work.  Otherwise the pressures grow and the choices are to remove the eye if the dog can handle the surgery.  Many dogs live for years with drops and they can even add a couple different kinds before surgery has to be discussed.  My foster Souffle had bad glaucoma suddenly (pressures way over 40).  OPR did the surery but at age 13 it was too much for her and she died a few days later.  A 10 yr old pug who is healthy should be alright.  But keep us posted about the drops - we have lots of fosters who are fine with drops.

Oh sweet Bella girl.  I'm so sorry to hear this.  I hope and pray the drops help.  Like you say loosing her sight she will manage but surgery would be hard.  We will just hope it does not come to that.  Does she handle the drops ok?  We have to put drops in Louie's one eye now since it was injured he has dry eye.  At first he fought it but now he has gotten somewhat accustomed to it.  Keep us updated.  I know you will.

Aww Tracy, this is so sad.  I sure hope the drops help her.  Will be thinking of her.

Poor poor Bella...I'm so sorry to hear this :(  I will hope and pray that the drops work.  I know how you feel about the surgery at an older age.  I don't mean to "cheat" on Pugslife but when it comes to health I'm always one to get as many opinions or people that have experienced the similar situations - have you been on Pug Village?  It's kind of like Pugslife and I went on there and posted about soft tissue sarcoma when Guido had his cancer and surgery.  It's just comforting to get others opinions that are actually going thru it or have gone thru it.  It can be overwhelming and scary doing online research, even though we are just trying to educate ourselves about the issue.  Every sickness or disorder seems to match the symptoms one is going thru, you know?  I personally haven't dealt with anything like Glaucoma so I'm sorry to say that I can't be of any help.  I know surgery isn't the route you want to think of but is it pretty much "curable" if that's what they end up doing?  I know she is older but she seems to be in good shape and although 10 sounds older, Pugs are tough and live to be grumpy old grandmas and grandpas :)  Keep us posted on her progress and will be thinking of you both :)
