The eyesight of your pet
Have you ever wondered how your animal sees the world? The cat, that great hunter, has amazing eyesight. A cat can easily catch its preys since it can see very well in light intensity that is seven times lower than what humans need to see properly. As for the dog, its eyesight is also stimulated by movements. For example, a dog can see a moving object at a distance as far as 900 metres, but has to get as close as 585 metres to see a static object. Watch for signs of problems that may affect your pet’s eye health to ensure your four-legged friend enjoy good eyesight. Contact your veterinarian if you notice watering of the eyes or unusual secretions, redness or an eye that is permanently closed.
Like humans, pets can suffer from ocular diseases. Cataracts, glaucoma, uveitis, cornea or crystalline lens problems are examples of serious affections that must be treated quickly. If you have concerns about your pet’s ocular health, consult your veterinarian to get to the bottom of it.
