What causes pitbulls to go blind?
One of the most common health problems facing pitbulls is blindness. While there are several different factors that can contribute to this condition, the most common cause is an autoimmune disorder known as auto-immune mediated disease (AIMD). AIMD occurs when the body’s immune system attacks healthy tissue, including the eyes. In pitbulls, AIMD typically affects the retina, leading to loss of vision. Treatment for AIMD typically involves steroids and other immunosuppressive drugs. However, in some cases, Pitbulls may also require surgery to correct the problem.
