Sorry to reply to such and old post. I am new to this forum and was wondering about the cataract surgery. My Yorkie is 16 1/2 yo and is in absolutely incredible shape. He only has gray hair around his snout and has no pain whatsoever. BUT... He has mature cataracts. I was wondering if surgery can be done on a dog of his age. Mostly, can the vet remove cataracts without putting the dog to sleep? I'm really not worried about the cost but more the safety of my dog.
