Hello,
My friend just recently send his ckcs to upm for cataract surgery. Apparently, the vet did a good job and the dog is having a new life.
Cost is quite high though but no choice......cant see them suffer right?Smile

The surgery....for both eyes ???

After that the recovery time, would appreciate if you could give some details and info my doggie may need the same treatment, what's the age of the dog. Is it sort of laser kind of op. Mine's a silky too.

Thks

hi.....oh its not my doggy....it belongs to a friend.
I saw him about 3 weeks ago and he looked fine, very happy with few bitches hanging around him.

I think he was around 5 when he had his cataract done. Your vet is probably right about your 11 yr old dog case.
