Sight For Barney
Friday, April 19, 2019
Meet Barney. Barney first came to the Chautauqua County Humane Society (CCHS) as a stray in February of 2018, and was quickly adopted out. Between February and November of 2018, Barney began losing his sight and suffered from a growing sense of fear. That overwhelming sense of fear was making his living arrangement difficult. So Barney was returned to CCHS.
After Barney came back to CCHS we had the sight loss investigated and it was determined at Animal Eye Care of Western New York that he had developed cataracts in both of his eyes, an odd development for a five year old dog. It was found that in his left eye is a fully matured cataract and in his right eye is a juvenile cataract. It was also made known at that time that Barney's sight can be saved. Barney's sight can be restored. Barney is in need of corrective surgery on his eyes that will restore his sight. The cost for Barney's surgery is $5,500 and it will need to be done soon to achieve optimal results. Barney's condition continues to worsen, and if the surgery is not done soon he will lose his sight completely.
