Basil, the blind rescue dog, with West Yorkshire dog rescue has helped to spread the word about how Muffins Halo can help blind and visually impaired dogs. He has become the poster boy for blind dogs and an incredible ambassador for those dogs who go blind at a young age. Basil was fitted with a Halo by The Pet Business and this has transformed his life. He is now able to enjoy life to the full without the risk of injury.
Basil is still looking for his forever home with another dog for company. He is confident, outgoing and very loving and playful. He will be a great companion for the right family.
Blind dogs like people deal with the onset of blindness differently, some are able to cope in their own homes as they are familiar surroundings and they know them, others are unable to do this and struggle to adapt. Muffins halo can help by ensuring the confident dog in their own home can still explore the outside world without risking injury. It can also help the dog who struggles and becomes depressed and anxious and unwilling to move.
Muffins Halo is designed to give dogs confidence to explore the world and to protect them from injury and to ensure that they are safe. It allows the dog to continue with daily life and whilst wearing it they can carry out daily activities including sleeping without the need to remove the halo.
Muffins Halo is lightweight comfortable and easy fit with adjustable Velcro straps. The halo helps the dog in the transition period to adapt to their blindness and to be safe and confident.
The halo is being recommended by veterinary ophthalmologists from around the world.
The halo comes in a number of designs it is available in white, red, blue and the new Quarterback and Butterfly designs.
