:cry:

I have a 7 year old Basset Hound named Chloe. She has glaucoma in her left eye and has lost all vision on that side. The vet says she has glaucoma and if we DO NOT remove her infected eye that it will spread to her right eye which is currently still ok. Please help me! I am so upset about this and torn as to what to do.........

Your Vet is correct, it can move to the other eye.

Here is some info:

I am afraid we can not provide you with any help past what your Vet is providing......You can get a second vet's opinion, but if his opinion is the same as the first, then to save the other eye, have the bad eye removed,
