Home for Irish Setter Lovers Around the World
Joan and I have been concerned about Fred for a week now,he is not confident,moving slowly and generally avoiding us.
We took him to the vet's yesterday and he has been,sadly, diagnosed with macular degeneration and retinal atrophy.He is going blind and it is progressing quickly.He is already starting to learn to cope and we will give him the best life we can.
At the same consultation Ellie had her check up and she has now got cataracts!
Joan and I would like to thank Sue Humphrey for all her help,advice,support and kindness.
Rest In Peace Fred, run free
oh this is a tragic loss.. I am so sorry for you, my thoughts are with you in this terrible moment..
I'm very sorry, fly free through the heavenly meadows
