As dogs get older, they develop a condition of the eyes that’s called Nuclear Sclerosis. Nuclear Sclerosis is the hardening of the lens of the eye which makes it difficult for dogs to see. Senior dogs frequently have a bluish cloudiness at the center of their eyes. That is Nuclear Sclerosis at work and it can eventually make it very difficult, sometimes impossible, for dogs to see – especially in limited light such as dawn, dusk and at night. While there is no real treatment or cure for Nuclear Sclerosis, providing your dog with a source of bright light at his eye level, such as with a light up dog leash or dog collar, can help tremendously.

Yard, Plants & Nature Disasters
While common pesticides, fertilizers, plant food and other similar gardening and lawn products are usually safe for pets, there are some such as bait pesticides – which are toxic due to extreme concentration, organic fertilizers blood meal and bone meal – which can cause diarrhea and blockages, respectively, mulch made from Cacao beans – which can result in Methylxanthine Toxicosis (chocolate poisoning) if ingested.
