News and Updates

SARDS (Sudden Aquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome) has been around for quite some time but it’s only been the last few years that it has been seen and recognized as a truly catastrophic disease.  Many veterinarians may have heard of it but know very little about it. When my beloved dog Rex was going blind, our Vet, recognized as one of, if not the best in my town, had no idea of what was happenning and did exploratory surgery on Rex’s eyes to try to find an answer. This only made things worse. Finally, as Rex had just gone blind, he referred me to an opthomalogist  who diagnosed him with SARDS. When discussing things with this doctor, she said they new very little about it. In a discussion I had with her a year or two later she said they THINK it is an auto immune disease. Now we know it IS an autoimmune disease, caused by an endocrine immune imbalance. It is EXTREMELY TIME SENSITIVE. A dog can start having trouble seeing and within a couple of weeks, go completely blind.

This is the reason I write about it as much as I do, in the hopes of alerting people of this horrific disease, so they can do something as soon as they see any clinical signs begin. Making people aware will enable them to act sooner, than later, with more confidence, unlike myself and many others, I have worked with that had no idea about what was going on and waited to act until it was too late.
