Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.
Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:
How long has she had these signs?
What color is the drainage?
Any redness, haze, clouding, or squinting of the eyes?
Any nasal drainage?
Can you take a photo of this? If you can do so, it will let me see what you are seeing. To post them, you can either use the wee paper clip on the tool bar. Or if you cannot see that on your phone/computer, then you can post them on any site (ie Flickr, Photobucket, Imgr etc) and paste the web address here for me to have a peek.

It is a male and he has signs of cataracts coming on. The drainage is clear in his eyes and his nose drainage is clear also. His poor nose is extremely dry.

Thank you,
If the nose tissue cracking?
How long have the cataracts been present?
Do you think he can see through them?
Are they just a blue haze?
Does he have any cataract inducing health issues (ie diabetes)?
Are you able to post a picture so I see his nose?
