Has anyone trie carnosine for cataracts?
A week from Saturday ago, our dog got conjunctivitis, and we took him to the vet. We did the eye drops like they told us for a week and when we stopped, he started having vision problems. He had moderate cataracts but he could still see. This weekend he lost the ability to see close in. I took the day off of work to get him back to the vets on Monday. They said it was the cataracts, and they could refer us to an opthalmolgist.
I did some research and found eye infections, and medications can exacerbate cataracts, and I do trust my vet, so I have a few questions.
Has anyone heard of carnosine eye drops or NACs and have you had success and if not, how did the cataract surgery work for your dog?
He seems really depressed, because he can't do what he used to. Are there any solutions for this?
Thanks for any replies.
