Cataracts In Dogs and Cats
Dietary Deficiency Could Be the Cause
Cataracts in dogs and cats reduce the quality of your pet's life and cause them to seem old before their time. It is very painful to watch your beloved pet struggle as they slowly those their sight, following only known pathways around the house. The first sign of a haze over your dog or cat's eyes indicates that the slow degenerative process is beginning.
What Causes Cataracts in Dogs, Cats and People?
The eye lens of dogs, cats, humans and most other mammals is made up of a carefully arranged structure of water and protein. When arranged properly, the lens is crystal clear, allowing light to pass through unimpeded. Cataracts develop when this delicate protein arrangement is altered.
The lens can be damaged by free radicals within the body. These free radicals attack protein molecules in the lens, oxidizing them and causing the proteins to congeal and the eye to become cloudy. Free radicals are created by sunlight, pollution, poor diet, and pharmaceutical drugs, among others.
Surgery is a Costly Option
Please consult your veterinarian but use your own pet-parent judgment. Veterinarians usually recommend surgery to remove cataracts in dogs and cats. Cataract surgery is expensive and has risks. Your pet’s sight could be further impaired or she could suffer under anesthesia. Recovery from cataract surgery is a frustrating process for owners and pets alike. The healing eye is extremely itchy so pets have to wear a cone all the time to keep them from getting to it and damaging the eye.
Nature's Solution to Cataracts
Nature's solution to cataracts is wonderfully simple and effective: just stay healthy. Holistic veterinarians tell us that free radicals oxidize the proteins in the lens, creating cataracts in dogs and cats. Antioxidants stop the free radicals from oxidizing, which reverses damage already done and prevents new damage.
Where can these antioxidants be found? Drugs are not the answer. Several common plants and herbs have antioxidants, but a couple are truly antioxidant powerhouses: Bilberries, Ginkgo Biloba, Wheatgrass Extract and Dandelion Root. N-acetyl L-carnosine (NALC) is a powerful naturally occurring amino acid and free radical scavenger.
No Dietary Deficiencies = No Cataracts in Dogs and Cats

Primalix Cataractin Ingredients
Bilberry berries (Vaccinium Myrtillus)
Bilberries are indicated in ancient Chinese and European medical text as being effective treatments for circulation and eye disorders. During the Second World War, British fighter pilots ate bilberries as their secret weapon to improve night vision.
In a study in which rats with age-related cataracts were given bilberry and some were not, it was found that after three months subjects who had eaten bilberry had seen no further progress in their cataracts while subjects who had not eaten bilberry continued cataract degeneration.
Just by looking at the deep blue-purple color of bilberries you can tell they are bursting with antioxidants. This color comes from the anthocyanins in bilberries. Anthocyanins are powerful antioxidants that studies suggest may improve circulation to the retina.
The National Library of Medicine through its National Center for Biotechnology Information (PubMed.gov) lists 761 clinical trials, randomized controlled trials and scientific studies on Bilberries and their many benefits for humans and animals.
We use only USDA Certified Organic Bilberry berries and NO Bilberry leaf, as the leaf may lower blood-glucose levels while the berries will not.
Ginkgo Biloba is a magnificent shade tree which is also regarded as the oldest living species of tree on the planet. Natural healers today use Ginkgo leaf extract to improve circulation and heart health, fight inflammation, improve brain function and wellbeing, and support vision and eye health. Ginkgo Biloba has been used for centuries in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for the positive effects its antioxidents have on cognition and memory.
Wheatgrass became famous in the 1930s when the chemist named Charles Schnabel restored health to his ailing chickens by feeding it to them. The beneficial effects of wheatgrass are due to high levels of nutrients and vitamins A, C and E, Beta-Carotene and Lutein, all of which have antioxidant properties.
A recent clinical study found that after giving wheatgrass for one month to dogs with age-related cataracts, the opacity of their lenses not only stopped increasing but was reduced by up to 40%.
Dandelion Root (Taraxacum Officinale)
Most people know dandelion as a detested weed that invades lawns and gardens. In fact, this underappreciated herb has a wide range of beneficial uses. Traditional medicine has long used dandelion to treat kidney and liver problems. Chinese and Ayurvedic medicinal systems tell us that these organs affect the health of the entire body including the eyes.
European folk medicine used dandelion to correct eye disorders. Since cleansing the liver improves eyesight, the detoxifying effects of dandelion are hugely beneficial. Furthermore, dandelion has been shown to increase circulation and strengthen retinal tissue. It is rich in antioxidants like Vitamins A and C and Beta-Carotene.
N-acetyl L-carnosine (NALC)
Studies show this naturally occurring amino acid and free radical scavenger has been found extremely effective against lipid peroxidation in the eye lens. Please see clinical studies.
