I have an 11 year old female Boston Terrier. She has Cataracts in both eyes. Other than supplements that I have purchased online, I was wondering if there is a specific diet that might be helpful in reducing the severity of the Cataracts? She has been on a Grain Free diet for years now. Her weight is perfect, coat is glossy…but the Cataracts and associated blindness are causing depression (for both of us). Any suggestions?

I am not aware of any foods or supplements that would make a difference….however, have you considered cataract surgery for your pet? Click on link for full article: https://www.mspca.org/angell_services/cataracts-and-your-pet/
What are the alternatives to cataract surgery?
Cataract surgery is an elective procedure. Dogs with impaired vision, or even complete blindness in both eyes, adapt very well and can continue to be a happy, healthy, integral member of your family.
I just found some information you might find helpful, see the comments too.
