Hi all, I've posted something similar on Facebook but thought I'd post here too! Mimi has been diagnosed with cataracts, and sadly they're getting worse quite fast
Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done for her, as she has heart disease and can't have anaesthetics. The vet double checked this with a specialist, and was very thorough in examining her and listening to her symptoms. She's not diabetic, so I know this isn't the cause, but I've been wondering what might be. Is it just because she's 10 years old, even though 10 isn't that old for a chihuahua? Are chihuahuas more prone to cataracts? Might her heart disease or medications be a contributory factor?
I'll be talking to the vet again next month when her heart is checked, but I suppose I'm just wondering why her? Is there a reason I can pinpoint, or is it just one of those things? Attached picture shows her 'good' eye.
