My girl Rusti who is now 8 years old has started acting like she can't see certain floors to walk across them. This just started about a month or 2 ago. Is this an eye sight problem? is there anything I can do to help her?

yes, there's a lot you can do to help her. go to an eye specialist.

Need better info.....

What do you mean by the certain floors?? If you mean like hardwood? Does she seem unsure walking or slide on them?? She probably has hip problems if that's the case....

I would take her to a vet ASAP if I thought its an eye problem. Is she bumping into things??....

No she is not bumping into anything. No other signs of eye problems. She only does it when we go to agility trials so it is usually in some type of arena and the floors are usually some type of hard concrete floor. I hadn't thought of her checking to see if it is slippery. She's had problems with her hips in the past so that could be it. She has an appt with a vet next Saturday for something unrelated. I'll ask the vet then. I was just trying to find out if anyone had any similar issues or good advice. Thanks for the helpful reply.
