As Lolo mentioned maybe the cataracts completed total blindness .

For a dog who was never aggressive something is definitely not correct

Pancreatitis if still occurring is extremely painful . You may want to double check with the test for pancreatitis to check if its still ongoing

I am not sure its worth a cushings test and go down that road unless you are seeing most of the symptoms and one of them is excessive hunger which you are seeing the opposite . You might want to join our sister site K9 cushings to ask their opinion

Now i dont know if i mentioned this but i do feed jesse one meal a day and did that because of pancreatic issues which seemed to end with this method . Cant be sure if thats why . So you could temporarily go with one meal and see if your dog will at least eat that comfortably

As lolo mentioned a muzzle maybe a good temporary solution until things get better . Not sure if you should have that ending discussion because i could not know your situation. Thats just a personal choice for your family to discuss
