    Putting here as I think more people view this section and I guess it might be a slight long shot as it seems more common in goldens and we don't have bucket loads of them here...

    Tashi mentioned Rupert's eyes looked like Horner's, spoke to my vet (he was going away) and he said as its in both eyes its unlikely. Mum's friend was up this weekend and her golden had Horner's, she said that is 100% what her girl had and that whilst both Rupert's eyes were like it that one was significantly more so than the other.

    Thing is, I've heard you can treat it with eyedrops etc but Mum's friend said Polly's never went and wasn't really treatable..?

    I don't want to rush him to the vet because around this time his ears flair up and he doesn't like the vet hence I'd like to take him as little as possible. He has been like this a while, doesn't appear bothered and I've been lead to believe its quite simply paralysis of muscles in the face not like he can go blind or anything...

    Anyone got any experience with it? :)
