Hi,
It has been a while since I have posted, but was wondering if anyone new approx. what the cost is for catarac surgery for a puppy. We had a litter of puppies that were planned and already spoken for. It appears that the littlest is either blind or has cataracs. I just want an idea of how much it will cost me to fix here eyes.

Thanks

Take the little one to the vet, it is sometimes repaired with drops and medication. I received a 7 week old dane that the breeder dumped and if she had gone to the vet, he would have had 90% eyesight back instead of 50% after we treated. The whole thing would have cost around $100 at the beginning instead of the $500 it ended up costing.

No offense but if you bred then you need to care for all of them regardless of cost..... waiting will make the outcome worse in the long run.

Thanks so much, I am definitely going to take care of her as she will be mine. I just wanted an approximation on what the cost would be. We have arranged to take her to a clinic that does eye care.
