Health issues: Vincent is partially blind due to pigmentary keratopathy which is is analogous to having large amounts of mud on the windshield of your car. Just a few flecks of mud may not impair your vision, but if your entire windshield (or cornea) is covered in mud (or pigment), then you may be functionally blind. Pigmentary keratitis is common in pugs and other brachycephalic breeds. The cause of the progressive pigmentation is unknown at this time.http://www.pugeyes.com/p/what-is-pk.html
He has been to the ophthalmologist and has started tacrolimus which should, after time improve his vision. Vincent can see much better during the day.
Another issue is that Vincent is hard of hearing. He goes to the Vet on 11-10-16 to see how we can make possible improvements here too.
Vinnie is a hysterical clown all day and night. He loves attention from everyone and he knows how to get it. He is decent on a leash and does well navigating during the day it’s a little more difficult at night.He is young and happy, energetic and playful. Recently neutered he does mark in strange places but not at home. He does not have accidents in his crate. We are working on the marking. He will bring joy to someone’s life!Adopted
