    Default Eye Vet news about my dogs cataracts

    Great news on both Pippin and Merry. Pippin had juvenille cataracts and had the surgery on both eyes last June 15th. I stopped having to give him the eye drops last month. He has completely healed and he only has to go back very 6 months to make sure he continues to do well and to watch for the onset of glaucoma.

    Merry, is the 1/2 sibling of Pippin and last year in May the eye vet saw the start of juvenille cataracts, but a less aggressive version than Pippin had. She was in today to see if they had changed in 12 months and there was absolutely no change in her eyes. Praise the Lord! She does not need eye surgery. She needs to go back next year for another follow-up.

    So I was very relieved that both dogs are doing well.

    Sounds like you have a more than competant vet opthamologist. That's great, and it's really good that you are staying on top of things with your dogs' eyes.
