This is not the only breed that is more prone to this, others such as the Beagle, Labrador Retriever, English Cocker Spaniel, American Cocker Spaniel, English Springer Spaniel, Yorkshire Terrier, Akita, Afghan Hound, Australian Shepherd, Doberman, Old English Sheepdog, Rottweiler are prone as well.
What are the Symptoms? In mild cases, you may not see any signs and the dog will not have a problem that is severe enough to interfere with his or her daily activities. It is often only caught when a full exam is being performed, including an eye exam. If a dog only has retinal folds, this only creates small blind areas and the dog will adjust and be able to function just fine.
In moderate to severe cases, this affects the dog’s vision. You may notice that the dog bumps into objects, seems confused and/ or stumbles when walking up stairs or navigating around objects
