Many dog owners have experienced blindness in their dogs associated with various diseases. Cataracts and blindness are an inevitable result of diabetes in dogs. ... A less known cause of sudden blindness in dogs is Sudden Acquired Retinal Degeneration Syndrome, or SARDS.
The current cause of SARDS is still unsure. Medical understanding of the cause of SARDS is poor with only a few theories. Suggested causes are elevations in adrenal sex hormones, toxins, autoimmune issues, or Cushing’s Disease.
The SightScent mapping system was created out of frustration! Our Peggy (14-year old Rough/Border Collie mix) has had greatly decreasing vision and hearing as she ages. We inherited 14-year old Alfie (Papillon/Maltese mix), who is similarly deteriorating. But it wasn't until our beloved Enzo (7-year old black Pug) went totally blind and deaf from SARDS within a few weeks that we really knew we had to do something.
Many of the tools used to assist blind dogs would not work for Enzo because of his contemporaneous deafness. It was heart wrenching to see him sit in the middle of a room with his head hung. Standing motionless for long periods of time with his tail uncurled, a sure sign of unhappiness. Robbed of his hearing and vision in the prime of his life, Enzo came to rely on his sense of smell. The SightScent system of Bkinz was created through much research, trial and error in an effort to assist these family members. Our other three dogs who do not have any deficits also approve! All three dogs have regained a sense of control and dignity in their lives. Enzo's tail is curled again!Edit this text to make it your own.
