Eye Health Tips for Cats and Dogs

When you are completely taken in by those puppy dog eyes, do not feel fooled – that is their scientific purpose! Did you know scientists have found that a loving gaze between a pet and their parent strengthens the bond between the two? Being able to see into your beloved pet’s eyes is very important for both you and your fur baby.

Fun Fact: Did you know that cats can see more details than dogs?  Animals can have the same eye problems that people may have. 

Such an important organ deserves diligent care. It’s very important that your pet has a regular eye care routine, which includes at-home eye exams (these are surprisingly easy to do, read on to find out how).

How To Perform an At-Home Eye Care Exam For Your Pet

Their eyes should appear clear and bright and their pupils should be equal in size.

In a well-lit area, look into your pet’s eyes. Their eyes should appear clear and bright and their pupils should be equal in size. The area around the eyeball should be white in color. Now, the next step could be a bit more challenging but is still very important. Using your thumb (make sure you have freshly washed hands), gently roll down your pet’s lower eyelid and look at the lining. If it is pink, things are good. If it is red or white, something may be wrong and you should see your vet for diagnosis.

Fun Fact: A rare feature that both cats and dogs have is the third eyelid. This is whitish to pinkish in color and can be found under the other eyelids closer to the nose.  The third eyelid protects the eyes from scratches.

Other Signs of Eye Problems in Pets

In addition to unequal pupil sizes and red or white eyelids, a few other things to be on the lookout for are:

  • Discharge & crusty pieces
  • Tearing
  • Tear-stained fur around the eyes
  • Squinting or closed eye(s)
  • Cloudiness, dryness or change in eye color
  • A visible third eyelid

There are many common animal eye health issues, and some of these may be symptomatic of another underlying condition, so please play it safe and always take your pet to the vet to make sure there is nothing bigger at play. For more information about common vet tests for eye health, common pet eye issues, and personal vet experience, check out Dr. Hillary Cook’s Blog.
