Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Zoey is walking slowly, seems annoyed, lethargic, and the eyes are appearing cloudy. I think the eyes are a good place to begin. Is the cloudiness occurring on the cornea (i.e. front part of the eye) or as a cataract? If you are unsure then a good way to determine this is if you are able to see the iris (i.e. colored part of the eye). If you are unsure then you can attach a picture to this message box and I can determine it for you.
