The separation anxiety and the blindness may go hand in hand; as Lily’s vision deteriorated she may have become more and more reliant on you and obviously had no idea why she was losing her sight, the anxiety may have reduced due to various reasons since going completely blind. But, the twitching, blindness and behavioural changes may be due to trauma, tumour, infection, toxins among other causes; it would be valuable for an Ophthalmologist to take a look at her eyes first before looking into more expensive tests (like CT or MRI). If there is a brain tumour, surgery is one option of many treatment routes; but a diagnosis needs to be found first. Regards Dr Callum Turner DVM
During the recovery period, it is best to have a comfortable and quiet space available for your companion to recuperate with plenty of access to food and water if they need it. Your pet may be asymptomatic during all or part of their treatment, and do not need to have their activity restricted unless instructed by your veterinarian or other signs of distress are noted. Infections by both varieties of fungus are zoonotic and can be transmitted to humans. The very young, the very old and those with compromised immune responses should avoid contact with the infective yeast to prevent transmission. Both topical and oral antifungal treatments can take several weeks to completely clear up an infection and your veterinarian may request that you bring your pet in for further cultures and testing, both during treatment and after. Although some dogs may require lifelong treatments to manage outbreaks, the overall prognosis is favorable.
