GREAAAAT NEWS Just got my dog back from a checkup at the vet, the pannus in his eyes have reduced dramatically !!! He can see really good now although there is still a bit of cloudiness left but very very very few, hopefully during the course of the treatment it will go away.
I want to thank you all for your replies and advise !! THANK YOU

|vickip9||My vet prescribed prednisone and cyclosporine. The prednisone is a steroid, so it can't be used for long durations as it damages the cornea. However, it is great at reducing the inflammation when used for the initial few weeks in combination with cyclosporine drops daily. Then the prednisone can be stopped and just use cyclosporine every day from there on out.|

|mspiker03||We use tacrolimus and prednisone for leynas pannus. And with the prednisone back ordered we got dexamethasone (spelling???). I forget what we started with, but it was like 3x/day with the prednisone and 2x/day with the tacrolimus and now we are down to 1x a day for each.|

Hi everyone, so day 2 after medication, i can't really tell there is improvement, like sometimes my dog can navigate through doors and places on its own and sometimes he runs into walls
how long do you believe it will take to notice improvements?
Do you believe that both Tobrex and Solcoseryl eye gel are good medications for treating Pannus?

I did what I could to help her out by not moving any furniture, not reacting when she ran into stuff, and taking her on the exact same walk each day. She knew that route well and enjoyed her walks.
I hope your dog recovers his eyesight.
Best of luck,

thank you so much for the comforting reply. I will definitely keep him inside, however do you think that the normal lights in house annoy him or is it safe?

Pannus is not contagious and the disease is reversible! I have seen dogs who were almost completely blind turn around after getting eye drops. You will need to keep your dog inside more often now though because the UV rays cause the disease. My dog even had a little viser she wore on walks in the sun!
I don't know the medications anymore but hopefully someone whose dog currently has pannus will be able to help you there.

hello so i took my dog to the vet today and it turned out to be pannus. the vet said that he is almost half blind. now i took my dog back home and noticing that he can barely see can't go up stairs, running into stuff
i usually keep him loose in the garden but now i decided to keep him in house to make sure he is fine... im sensing he is very scared now so I'm starting next to him at all times.
but the vet said that he will get better and be able to see after the treatment.. anyone encountered such case?
the vet prescribed medications that i would like you to check and tell me if it is the same as what you were giving your dog.
can u plz check the below link u can find a photo of the medications
the solcoseryl gel will be used twice on a daily basis for one month
the tobrex gel will be used twice daily for one week
the problem is the main medication solcoseryl can't be found in pernicious i have been searching all day until i found like 4 of them and the vet said there is no replacement medication to it.. can you guys confirm what other medications u used and can help
finally since i will be keeping him in the house i want to ask is pannus is contagious to humans or other dogs/cats
greatly appreciate your feedback
