Animal Eye Fact:

Dogs cannot see the difference between red and green.

Dogs are called “man’s best friend” for a reason. Having been selectively bred over centuries to hunt, protect and provide service for humans, it is no wonder that the number of dog-owning households in the United States outnumbers any other pet. Dogs come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from teacup dogs like the Yorkshire terrier to the very large Great Dane. Dog breeds are incredibly diverse, as are the potential ocular ailments they may face during their lifetime.

Dog breeds prone to eye issues include Siberian huskies, pugs, poodles, Shetland sheepdogs and Boston terriers. For information about the various canine eye conditions we treat, click here.
