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.
I am very sorry for your loss, Howard. You did everything you could for him.
Such an awful situation Howard, Joan and red heads. Very hard to do the best thing for Fred when you loved him so much. Rest sweetly Fred.
So very sorry Howard and Joan, what a devastating news!!! my thoughts are with you.
