My senior Aussie girl was acting strangely last night so I took her to the vet after hours. After a eye stain test and pressure test she was diagnosed as having primary glaucoma. I have her on eye drops and pain meds at the moment. I'm wondering what else is out there for her. The vet told me laser surgery but honestly my family can't afford that. The vet told me that the eye drops do not work as well for animals as they do humans. Is there anyone out there that can direct me to something that will work for her? I am currently under going treatment for breast cancer and that strain on my family is more than enough. Thank you!
