Ask the Vet: Frankie and Coping with Blind Pets

Dr. Joel Conn’s segment, Ask The Vet, aired Monday at 6:30am on KCOY CBS 12.  Dr. Conn brought on Frankie the dachshund as his special guest!

Some of you might remember the story of Frankie:  he was brought in for euthanasia due in part to his blindness in 2010 and Drs. Joel and Sarah decided to allow the owner’s to surrender him for re-homing.

Frankie came on “Ask The Vet” nearly three years ago and we realized that we never provided any followup.  About 3 months after his surrender, Drs. Joel and Sarah found Frankie a loving “forever” home with an amazing local family. He is thriving in his new home and his blindness has never slowed him down!

On the segment today, Dr. Conn discussed a few things that can help owners to better care for their blind companions.  See the video below:
