My little pei Buddha seems to have a milky film over one eye. I asked the vet who said "some dogs function ok with it"

Is there a test or way to tell? She seems to do okay outside in pen but indoors is a bit skittish and paranoid of coming near my larger dog.

Sounds like the start of a cataract. He is probably still seeing shadows so its hard to gauge the function.

PLEASE- If you notice any increased drinking or urination have him checked for diabetes. I noticed some cloudyness in my dogs eyes but didn't realize it was due to the onset of diabetes until the peeing/drinking got bad.

I am not saying ALL dogs with cloudy eyes have diabetes- it is just a sign.

I have an old beagle "Buddy" that is 20 years old and he has had a cataract in one eye for the past six or seven years. He did fine with it but last year he lost the vision in his other eye. He gets around still but I have to help him sometimes.

Aw, best to him...Buddha is only six but I guess it can happen anytime. Is there surgery for it? Its worrying bcs she is territorial and doesn't like my older female dog, so I have to watch her and keep them separate when I'm at work.
Older dog is a Rottie/pei mix, and has no problem defending herself.

Thanks for info., she doesn't seem to be drinking more than usual, and eats normally etc.

You can have cataract surgery done but it is very expensive. Another thing comes to mind- did she hurt her eye recently such as a scratch or irritation? I had a dog that was scratched in the eye by a thorn one time and her eye clouded up for a while. It returned to normal a few weeks later.

Not sure. she hasn't bumped into anything. I will be trying to find a dog ophthalmologist I guess bcs she's also afraid at night to go out, she smells the ground a lot more, and will only go out with her brother (he's on a leash and she walks loose).
She Is very afraid of dark now.
