Dog Eye Cataracts
My Yorkshire terrier has cataracts. Is there any eye drop I can use to dissolve or at least help improve the problem?
If your Yorkshire Terrier has been diagnosed with cataracts, it's important to consult with a veterinarian or a veterinary ophthalmologist for the most appropriate treatment.
There are some eye drops on the market that claim to help dissolve or shrink cataracts, such as lanosterol or N-acetylcarnosine (NAC) eye drops. However, the effectiveness of these products is still a topic of debate, and their ability to improve cataracts in dogs has not been conclusively proven. In some cases, these drops may provide temporary relief or slow down the progression of cataracts, but they might not be a definitive solution.
Surgery is often the most effective treatment for cataracts in dogs, particularly if the cataracts are advanced and affecting your dog's vision. A veterinary ophthalmologist will be able to assess your dog's condition and recommend the best course of action.
Remember to consult with a veterinarian or a veterinary ophthalmologist for advice on the appropriate treatment for your Yorkshire Terrier's cataracts.
