Eyes turning blue


Recommended Posts

In a post in General Discussion Forum a while ago someone mentioned that they had noticed that their older Border Collies' eyes (I think ages 10 & 12) were starting to take on a blue tint. In all my research about dogs, I've never read anything about this and just wondered what it was a sign of. I posted my question there, but haven't heard anything. Maybe someone here can help. I've been looking at Scooter's eyes a lot ever since, and he's only four years old. Eyes still light brown. Thanks!

My 9.5yo's eyes have a slight cast to them as well. My vet confirmed that it is normal age related hardening of the lens and will not interfere with Maggie's vision.

 

Be aware that some vets will call this cataracts, when it's def not. Another vet we had used for dental work had mentioned that Maggie had cataracts and that's why we scheduled an appointment with our regular vet. Dr. Mitchell (regular vet) has no idea why some vets do this, but she said it's not uncommon, so be advised.

Thank you for that information! :rolleyes:
