Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

At Estefania's age, this is the time that cataracts will begin and this can show as a white line. It is important to have your vet examine Estafania to be sure. This could also be due to scar tissue but that would usually show in only one eye. Ctaracts are not serious early but they can become serious later in life and surgery can resolve this. Make sure to have your vet run athorough eye exam to know for sure what is happening.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****

that is exactly what I was thiking it could be... they are both very small and present in both eyes. One very small white line in each eye... I will get in contact with her vet then to see what would be the best course of action...

Good for you....since it is both eyes, this may be cataracts or scar tissue but your vet will know after testing what will be best for your sweet Estefania.
