Welcome


First a brief, very sad note:

Milo, Died 20th August 2015

Milo, Died 20th August 2015

Milo passed away on the 20th of August 2015, aged 16. In addition to his blindness, he had lost much of his hearing and he could no longer walk. Over the last 6 months of his life, Milo had the occasional tummy upset due to his ageing digestive system being a bit super-sensitive, but they only lasted a day or so and then he recovered and was bright, alert and happy again. However, his tummy upsets became more frequent and then on the 18th of August he had a bad attack, which wouldn’t clear up, so on the 20th of August I made the agonising decision to have him put to sleep.

Milo has been such a huge part of my life, and of my family. I miss him more than I could ever have imagined. I have decided to continue with this website in tribute to my wonderful, blind, diabetic pup who will never, ever be forgotten and can never be replaced.

Hello and Welcome to Blind Dog Milo
The online resource for owners of blind and partially sighted dogs.

This site is dedicated to my little dog Milo who, despite being blind, diabetic and epileptic, has the sweetest, gentlest nature you could imagine. More About Milo

I created this website to provide a comprehensive resource for owners of blind dogs – in particular to give reassurance to owners of a newly blind dog that the world hasn’t come to an end for their beloved friend. More about why I started this website

The information in this site should be of use to all owners of blind dogs, be they owners of newly blind dogs, new owners of already blind dogs, or more experienced owners who may be interested in new developments and products for their pet.

This website will provide: –

  • news stories from around the world about blind dogs and their owners
  • information on any new products, equipment, toys, medical treatments and training techniques etc which will help these amazing pets and their owners to enjoy their lives as much as any fully sighted dog

The aim is for this to become the most comprehensive website providing advice and support for owners of blind dogs and I would love to hear from you if you feel anything needs changing or if there is an area I haven’t covered that you would like to see included.

  • I would also love to see your photos and hear your stories about your own blind dog and how you’ve adjusted to the challenges and rewards of caring for a visually impaired pet. Send me your stories and photos and I will feature them on this site in a “Rogues Gallery”
  • Perhaps you would like to share your own hints and tips gathered from your experience of caring for your blind dog? Send me your hints and tips and I will add them to this site, giving you due credit
  • You could also add your own comments, opinions and reviews on any of the products I have mentioned or information I have published here

Together we could make this website an invaluable resource for all those who are caring for these very special pets.


***Note: Some sections of this site are still under construction and will be developing over time, so if you can’t find what you’re looking for please come back another time.***

    So glad to have found your web site.

    First, I am so sorry about your Milo passing away. It is evident he was a much-loved part of your family.

    Second, I have a 7 yr old Basset Hound – Barney was a rescue 6 yrs ago – who had one eye taken out in Sep due to glaucoma. We are desperately trying to buy him some time on the other eye, but my feeling is within the next 6 mos, certainly within the next year, the other eye will need to be removed. I am getting myself and Barney prepared for the inevitable and appreciate the advice and support you offer. Thank you.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. Milo has left a HUGE hole in my family, and in my heart. I miss him every day.

      I’m sorry to learn about Barney’s glaucoma. It’s a horrible condition that causes so much pain. I know it seems like a drastic step having an eye removed, but Milo was so much happier once the source of his pain was gone and I’m sure Barney must be too. I know you’ve done the right thing for Barney and that you will make the right decision in the future about his other eye.

      One thing I can promise you is that Barney will AMAZE you with how quickly, and how well he will adapt to being blind.

      I’m so pleased that you’ve found my site helpful. I created it to help people in similar situations to the one in which Milo and I found ourselves and the fact that it’s helped you and Barney has made it all worthwhile.

      Best wishes to you and your family, and in particular to Barney.
