Q. My minature schnauzer became blind in both eyes overnight, swollen lymp nodes in her neck and one rear leg. Uveitis diagnosis, not responding to meds.

A. In some rare cases Dog Lymphoma can have an ocular involvement due to an immune mediated reaction, which would cause Uveitis. i mentioned Lymphoma because of the swollen lymph nodes that where noticed at the same time ( the most common sign of lymphoma is swollen lymph nodes). What treatment is your dog on at the moment? was Lymphoma diagnosed?

A. Your vet may also want to do an FNA biopsy of one of the swollen lymphnodes to check for lymphoma. This is where lymphnode tissue is aspirated with an injection needle and then either sent to a lab or examined under the microscope in-house.

A. If you live in an area with a lot of ticks and the possibility of an Ehrlichiosis infection (a tick borne disease) then this could be typical signs of Ehrlichiosis. Discuss an Ehrlichia test with your veterinarian.
