Trauma can also cause cataracts. Staffies can suffer from hereditary cataracts but I understand these tend to affect both eyes. Good luck at the vets. I'm sure they will be able to get to the bottom of it, even if you need a referral.
Easier said than done but step away from Google and stop trying to second guess it! There are a number of things it could be.
I used to suffer quite badly with anxiety - do you have any strategies to put risks in perspective? It makes the wait for the vet appointment a lot easier if you can calm some of those bad thoughts in the meantime!
oh gosh you must be quite shaken up - I really hope she will be fine I know you will be very busy but do update when you have time I shall be thinking of you both. My late greyhound had a tumour on her rib the size of a tennis ball and she had it removed along with the rib - she was fine and lived till she was 13 (still miss her everyday though and lost my boy greyhound few months ago). Hoping all will be ok for your girl - I am doing walking at my local rescue centre and most of the dogs are staffies or staffie-crosses - am quite taken with them, having previously had no experience of them. Might have to have one or ideally two. All the best.
Thank you, I am just heartbroken for her she has been through so much already used as a breeding machine, starved, covered in cigerette burns if ever a dog didnt deserve to ill it is her!
This is a picture of her when she was picked up off the streets of London in February 2012, she was rescued from being pts by scottish staffordshire bull terrier rescue who transported her from London to scotland, one of the transporters fell in love with her and as she was being transported on valentines day they called her Rose, she was a valentines Rose.
Oh op, I hope she recovers well. She looks so lovely and is obviously so loved now. I could see from the photograph that it did look like a tumour but hoped I was wrong. I am sure you will lavish her with love and care, and she will certainly manage fine with one eye. Everything crossed for you that the prognosis is good.
oh so pleased to hear from you I posted for you on Tuesday I have been thinking about you both all the time. I used to wrap my dogs' tablets in a sliver of ham or an cube of pate they wolfed them straight down. I lost my second dog a few months' ago and now do walking at the local rescue which is full of staffies and staffie crosses. I am fond of a little 11 year old slightly disabled one and am probably going to have him on a home trial soon. I have previously had greyhounds. Give Rose a kiss from me and have a glass of wine yourself. Hoping for good news next week xxx
