My miniature poodle has...

My miniature poodle has cataracts. I've been reading up on eye drops but reviews are disheartening. Many negative reviews as to positive results. What is your opinion on them?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name and age?

Sammy - age 6

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Sammy?

He does NOT have diabetes. Other than cataracts he is healthy and happy dog

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? What were the name of the eye drops you were reading about?
