Our dog has cataracts from diabetes. We have the glucose under "control" with a special diet and insulin, and wondered if the product discussed in this article http://www.preventcataract.org/ would be viable for our Buddy, who is 13 years old and has been diabetic now for the better part of a year. Our vet stays so busy it's difficult to get a consultation sometimes, plus we are currently using Vetionx for Buddy's hip dysplasia and wondered what you thought about these Con-C, eye-drops, which can be purchased on Amazon.com. Thanks!

Dear John,

I have not used those eye drops but I have used a similar product called OcluVet. The OcluVet stings so I hope Con-C will not; it might be difficult to administer if it stings. I think it is good idea to try to protect the lens. Other eye drops you could try are eye drops made from diluted Cineraria (this has been used to manage cataracts in dogs according to the literature).

I would also give basic supplements to improve digestion and reduce inflammation.

Please let us know how you do.

Best regards,

Dr.Char www.vetionx.com
