Dogs and cats differ with regards to the presentation and management of diabetes. One such difference is the development of diabetic cataracts. Dogs with diabetes are highly likely to develop cataracts despite glycaemic control. Surgery is considered a good option for these cases as success rates are high. However, if surgery is not possible, the eyes require treatment and monitoring alongside the diabetes.
- Diabetic cataracts in dogs with diabetes are highly likely to occur
- Management of them is important for quality of life of the patient
- Just because surgery is not possible, cataracts still need to be treated and monitored along with the diabetic control
