Be on the lookout for vision impairment in pets

Like people, dogs and cats can experience poor or failing eyesight as they age. The onset of vision loss in our pets can occur for a number of reasons, including cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal diseases such as sudden acquired retinal degeneration syndrome (SARDS), and progressive retinal atrophy (PRA). SARDS, a disease that affects the function of the light sensing cells of the retina, primarily affects middle-aged dogs and results in blindness over a very short period of time.

Symptoms include difficulty navigating, bumping into objects and dilation of the pupils. Some dogs may also have systemic changes such as an increased appetite, increased thirst and weight gain.
