Cataracts

 

Cataracts, a hereditary cloudiness of the lens in the eye, can occur in all purebred and mixed breeds.

 

Your new puppy should come with a clear exam from a veterinary ophthalmologist

If your dog's eyes look cloudy or bluish-gray, you should take him to the vet or

Veterinary Ophthalmologist for an exam.

 

However, it is natural for an older dog's eyes to become cloudy, or gray, with advanced age.
