My 16-year-old kitty named Violet has glaucoma in both eyes. Her vision fluctuates, but I can tell she's going blind. I'm treating her holistically. I'm feeding her Nulo Freestyle dry cat food and clean well water. Her manuer is dry, so I'm going to add some wet food. I put MSM eye drops in her eyes usually once a day, but I plan to up that. The MSM eye drops are by a company called Dexterity Health. The drops contain MSM, distilled water, and vitamin C. I'm giving her 3 products by a company called Standard Process: VF Hemp Oil for cats and dogs. It's supposed to relax the optic nerve and address pain. It seems to work for her; Feline Hepatic Support for liver metabolism. It has a long list of holistic ingredients to include amla extract (vitamin C), anti-oxidants, enzymes, amino acids, minerals....; A-C Carbamide which contains vitamin A & C, and carbamide. Carbamide is also known as urea and moves fluid through the system. People use it to reduce glaucoma eye pressure. I mix the A-C Carbamide powder with Dr. Vitamin Solutions Eye & Vision Support and put it in some tuna. She eats that up. At this stage of the game (she's 16), my goal is to keep her out of pain and prevent her eyes from being removed. I think that it is successful so far. She gets a little pissy about taking the meds, but too bad. I plan to get some of that glycerine to keep on hand in case she has a bad flare up. I also rife her, but that's a whole other can of worms. It would be so helpful if they could talk.
This is for Namaste, Om. Were you implying my comments? Or, the others for "allopathic approach"? So far, my dog is responding well with Vitamin C and his pressure reading on left eye is low. I am optimistic and will take another pressure test this week to be sure, it isn't a fluke.
If you meant for those eye meds from the specialist, are pretty frighten due to these bloggers ' experiencing no help with control their dogs' eye pressure & altered them to do something more costly pains.
I never like the idea of pushing those useless meds for this eye condition on a dog & paying them for nothing. There is a miraculous cure for human glaucoma and that is used by conventional approach.
Even worst by altered way to deal with the pressure control is far more expensive which most specialists would say either do "laser treatments or eye removal and so on..."
Most importantly, I am making efforts to help my dog's eye pressure remains low and stay within normal range. Had him checked in with the vet yesterday while on his 3rd day of treatment!
I didn't disclosed anything about giving him the Vitamin C, Bilberry, Ginok Bilboa & others to my vet. Just saying that many vets & specialists out there to rob $$$$$ for unjustified cause and dishonesty about those useless meds! They're Not putting for the best interest of all dogs that come down with eye conditions. Just the $$$$$ for their services & so-called treatments.
