Might just be me worrying over nothing, but thought I'd make a post anyway.

Have noticed that one of Sprout's eyes looks a little cloudy when seen in certain lights. There's no discharge or irritation, so I don't think he's poked it or had a fight with Chutney. Might be a cataract starting?

I do have a vet appointment for him tomorrow (just a general health check up), so will ask what they think.


Eye that looks a bit cloudy (to me, anyway!) Please tell me if I'm just stupidly worrying over nothing!

I would suggest a visit to the vet.
It could be cataracts starting or it could be a hay injury causing infection.
Better getting it checked sooner rather than later.
Let us know what happens.

He's in for a vet visit tomorrow, so I'll ask then.

My Merab has cataracts and is now virtually blind.
Apart from moving more cautiously it doesn’t stop her living life to the full.
She’s trained me to put her veggies under her nose away from the others so she doesn’t miss out.
I think it’s laziness.
