Shar Pei from Puppy Mill Who was Blind Her Whole Life Finally Can See

She was used for breeding and then discarded, but she’s so much better now.

Shar pei rescued by vet

Cookie Dough the Shar Pei was rescued by Vet Ranch after the dog was left at a shelter in very poor shape.

The dog had a skin infection and ulcers in her eyes and she had been used as a breeding dog at a puppy mill.

Cookie Dough couldn’t see and was likely blind her whole life because of entropion. Entropion is a medical condition in which the eyelid folds inwards causing the eyelashes to continually rub against the cornea and cause irritation.

It’s very uncomfortable and usually treated when a dog is young, so to think that Cookie Dough suffered so long from something that is treatable is maddening!

But Dr. Kari set to work to treat the sweet Shar Pei’s skin infection, heartworm and the ulcers in her eyes so she would be ready for surgery.

Four months later, is just heartwarming. Watch Cookie Dough’s transformation in the video below.
