Helping Your Pet Manage Cataracts


Do your pet’s eyes look cloudy or gray?  While it’s normal for eyes to become cloudy with age, this symptom can also be a sign of cataracts.  

Here are a few tips to help preserve your pet’s vision:

  • Check your pet’s eyes regularly.
  • Bring your pet to our office if you notice his eyes look cloudy or gray.
  • Bring your pet in if you suspect they are having troubled vision
  • Be conscious of any eye trauma

Cataracts are an opacity in the lens of the eye that causes blurry vision.  Diabetes, eye trauma and old age are a few of the most common reasons why your pet may have cataracts.  While it is unlikely that they will disturb your pet’s vision, it’s important to monitor their development in order to keep your pet happy and healthy.

If you think that your pet may have cataracts, it’s important that you schedule a visit to the vet.  If left untreated, cataracts can lead to glaucoma, inflammation, and in severe cases, blindness.  Our experienced veterinarians can diagnose whether or not your pet has a cataract or another condition that causes cloudy eyes.
