Hi there cybervet

I ' ve got a 6 week old harlequin great dane,with lovely looking blue eyes.A collegue of mine says it could be an indication of blindness,but he seems fine to me,responds well to us and his sight also seems fine,but how do I know for sure if there isn' t anything wrong with him?.What other defects are common in this breed?

Dear Tsheps

Your puppy would walk into things if blind. Ask your vet to have a look at his next vacination. For the next question- buy a book!
