Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

New member: hello. I have a 5 1/2 yr old husky. Was recently told by my vet Duke has cataracts. Eye pressure was 20/24 left and right. I would not have known unless they had spotted it. He does have redness around outside the eyes but he's had that forever.  I have a appointment in July  at the Texas eye institute for dogs in Dallas that just does cataracts. My area does not have any cataract places so I'll be traveling about 140 miles per trip. My question is I was told that those numbers are normal for a husky. ? So any feed back would be gratefull. Also does anyone have any tips or tricks to apply eye drops, it has been a nightmare to try and give them. I've tried lots of diff ways but with no luck. (He weighs about 72 pnds) and the drops were expensive. Thanx for any feed back you can give.

Don't know about eye drops for cataracts. Pressures are a screen for glaucoma. And sometimes, drops are prescribed for glaucoma.

Oops.. which reminds me. Ophthalmologist does not have my new phone number and I think I have an appointment coming. Or missed Sad
