So Jordan brought the 9-year-old poodle to a specialist in Boise, Idaho. A couple of visits later, and Margaux's family finally had a diagnosis: Margaux had a disease called diffuse pyogranulomatous inflammation, a disorder that crippled her immune system.
"It just started attacking various parts of her body," Jordan says.
Margaux's paw would eventually clear up. But the disease would move on to another part of her body.
"She went through periods where she was perfectly normal," Jordan says.
And then everything hit her at once.
"[The disease] started coming to her eyes," he explains. "It came to one eye really badly."
The decision was made to have it removed. But not long after that, the disease struck her remaining eye - it, too, had to be removed.
