Just wanted to add something regarding your comment Marko.

I have the human form of cataracts. They used to be covered under OHIP in Ontario but that changed a few years ago. So in order for OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance Plan) you must have at least 20-50 vision. If your vision is under this number you can opt to pay for it yourself and it is very expensive.

I have 20-40 vision so my eye doc predicts I should be able to have the surgery within the next year depending on how fast the eyes deteriorate.

Cataracts BTW are a pain in the butt!!!

And yes I would contact Guelph for sure!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
