Default Re: Diabetes and blindness

Don't get too worried based on the "75% chance." There's no guarantees either way.
My dog is 3.5 years diabetic now (wow, time flies) and has had a slight cataract for most of that time, and it hasn't really progressed.

All you can do is keep his blood sugar relatively consistent and in a decent range. I personally don't think any topical products will do much to prevent it, and it may not happen anyway.

I believe help comes from the inside, so I feed my dog little bits of good eye health foods: sweet potato, wild blueberries, pumpkin, green beans.
Riley, 8 yr. old maltipoo, 25 lbs., diagnosed Feb 2017, taking thyroid meds, had pancreatitis and DKA mid March, eating Wellness Senior formula can food. NPH dosage now at 9.0 units Humulin N. Adding either pumpkin, spinach, blueberries, yams, or green beans to his food. Also omega-3 oil.
