It is fairly easy to see, but you should know if you have a cataract dog. A cataract dog will be easy to see, just look at their eyes. If you do in fact have a cataract dog, look into your options. Your first step in dealing with your cataract dog is probably going to see a veterinarian. A veterinarian can give you the best advice in this situation. You might think surgery is the best option, but a veterinarian may recommend something different for your cataract dog. Also, a veterinarian can be straight with you about the price of surgery for a cataract dog. Many surgeries performed on dogs can be quite pricey, so better make sure the surgery is absolutely needed. Most humans that have cataract get surgery to correct this, but it can be overlooked more with animals. Having surgery performed on animals is always more expensive, one reason being that anesthesia is almost always needed. You cannot tell a dog or cat to lie still, so they must be put out. If you do not have a veterinarian for you animal, that should be the first step. Go out there and find a veterinarian, and even make an appointment. If you are worried about the price, I am sorry to say that this is something you should have thought of before even getting a pet. Providing appropriate care for your pet is part of the responsibility of owning an animal. Once you have a veterinarian, have them double check to see if you have a cataract dog or not. If you do have a cataract dog, immediately start discussing care and procedures that you can undergo to help your dog get better. The sooner you start discussing treatments the sooner your animal can get better.
