We are owned by a 17 month old Basset the goes by the name of Basil (think of Basil Rathbone of Sherlock Holmes fame) and we had never had a basset before. He is a shelter/rescue dog and did come with some adverse baggage which he is getting rid of quickly. He was abused and we are still finding the triggers that cause the adverse behavior. He is getting lots of love and affection and basically a stress-free life at present. Yesterday marked the end of three weeks that he has been living with us. One of the questions we have is regarding eye care and possible eye problems. We used the natural herb, eyebright, in the diet for our soft-coated wheaten terrier and it helped his central progressive retinol atrophy to the point that it stopped the progression of the disease and he did not lose his eyesight completely. Does any one use eyebright in the treatment for glaucoma in bassets? We did put Basil on the herb three days ago and my husband and I take the herb also. We are both over 60 and my husband is on a computer all day at work and does not need reading glasses. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.
