Muffins Halo has already helped many blind dogs in the UK to adjust to their loss of vision. The Halo was designed by Silvie Bordeaux after her dog Muffin went blind.
She was devastated when he kept bumping into walls and falling down the stairs. He became very depressed and was afraid to move around. Silvie could not let him out of her sight and carried him around everywhere. Silvie searched the internet extensively for solutions/assistance. That was when she realized that there is a great need for products to assist blind/visually impaired dogs, so she invented this device/guide, “Muffin’s Halo Guide For Blind Dogs ®," and it has changed his life, as well as hers.
Muffin's Halo is a custom-designed product to protect blind dogs of all sizes from bumping into walls and objects. It is a great aid to help blind dogs become familiar with existing or new surroundings quickly. Muffin's Halo is lightweight and comfortable. This blind dog product does not hinder a dog's normal daily activity and gives them their confidence back.
Muffin's Halo Guide for Blind Dogs ® is lightweight, comfortable and has a stylish, easy fit with adjustable Velcro straps. Its soft angel wings sit on the dog's neck to protect their head and shoulder area, while the decorative halo is designed to protect them from bumping into walls and other objects. This device does not hinder a dog's normal daily activity
Available in three styles – Muffin’s Halo, the Butterfly Halo, and the Quarterback Halo – there’s a halo to fit all dog breeds, regardless of size. Because it’s lightweight, the dog will get used to the new accessory quickly and after a while, won’t even notice that it’s there.
Dogs can suffer from blindness for various reasons. It can be caused by cataracts, glaucoma, retinal diseases, cancer, trauma and diabetes. Many breeds are susceptible to vision impairment, but for many, it can be due to Type II Diabetes. As pet obesity rates rise, so do the occurrences of cataracts and blindness.
It is an incredibly difficult and stressful time when a dog loses their vision, and Muffins Halo is the only device that has been developed and designed to help dogs to adapt to their sight loss and to give them the confidence to continue their lives and to protect them from injury.
