Montgomery County Veterinary Hospital For Dogs With Cataracts

Cataracts form for many reasons and an underlying disease state is sometimes present, however, the most common reason is genetic/inherited traits. When a disease state is the cause, veterinarians will look for a history of diabetes, trauma, nutritional disorders, exposure to radiation and age-related disease. It is important to note that diabetes is the second most common cause of cataracts in dogs. If your dog has a history of weight loss, increased drinking and urination, and a whitish color to his eyes, he should be evaluated by your veterinarian and tested for diabetes.

Why Your Pet Sheds Montgomery County Veterinary Hospital

Shedding usually is dictated by two external factors, which are the changes in the length of day and external temperature. When seasons change in your regional area, your animal’s hormones change as well. As East Coast residents, we can witness these temperature changes on a larger scale. The frigid, cold temperature of the winter season causes your pet’s hormones to grow a thicker coat, while in the spring and summer months, your animal’s fur will start to fall from its skin. However, due to the fact that most pets live indoors with a relatively consistent temperature, this results in a constant cycle of shedding.
