Unfortunately for Duffy, he began to develop diabetes, a condition that can lead to many complications in both humans and four-legged friends. The disease caused the Irish terrier to struggle with his eyesight, until he eventually lost it completely.
It all happened so fast, according to Duffy’s number one companion, May. “Within about 3-5 months he went from a totally normal 8-year-old dog to a dog who was completely blind,” he wrote on the website Reddit. But his owners did their best to help.
Even though Duffy was given medication to try and stabilize his condition, no amount of it could bring back his vision. After speaking to veterinary professionals, Duffy’s owners were told that there might be an alternative solution.
