Cataracts

Cataracts or cloudiness of the eye's lens can be due to either hereditary or environmental reasons. Juvenile cataracts are usually hereditary. It may appear as a dot or may cloud the entire lens. A veterinary ophthalmologist can determine if your rottie has cataracts. Sometimes surgery to remove the cloudy lens will help restore sight. It is very important that your rottie's parents have their eyes certified through CERF.
