    how can you tell if a puppy is blind?

    one of the puppies in sadie's litter is not responding to anything right now. she can hear because when we call her she comes. but she either goes to the right or left and not directly to us. even if we don't call her and she hears me talking she still does the same thing. does this mean she is or possibly can be blind?

    Sounds like its time to take the pup to the vet. Plan ahead with the front desk so you won't have to wait long, to minimize the time away from the mom.

    If the vet says the pup is blind, but is otherwise fairly healthy, don't dispare. Handicapped pets can have full, wonderful lives with the right caretaker. I have a blind-from-birth cat and he's terrific I hope things go ok for you and all the pups!
