Medical cures for cataracts

Hello Friend,

A cheery 'Black Friday' to you and your family..

In talking to pet parents such as yourself, I get asked many a pet question.

Sheila asked if there was anything she could give for her older poodle with arthritis and cataracts..

The options are many, but knowing human nature, it's better if you can give ONE thing for your pet

Not a whole bunch of different powders/pills etc...

SO I suggested a supplement with antioxidants for eye health, along with nutrients for joint support ( glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM)..these are all in my supplements here

Above is a very cute poodle - the breed is more prone to cataract formation.

Pictured below is a cataract. The center of the eye is white and cloudy. That is the lens of the eye.

Medical Cure for Cataracts

In Cataracts, you will see a whitening in the center of your pet’s eye. The lens is the structure which sits in the middle of the eye and focuses light. It will become cloudy, no longer being clear. In most cases you may not notice any changes, except seeing the cloudiness. In other cases you will see that your pet doesn’t see as well at night. In some cases of severe cataract formation your pet will become blind, although this usually only happens in pets with diabetes.

The lens gets infiltrated with inflammatory cells, causing it to become cloudy. This typically happens with age. Your older dog develops a condition called ‘Senile‘ Cataracts. The lens ages, and becomes cloudy. Other common causes of cataracts are diabetes mellitus, and any other condition which produces inflammation in the eye (i.e. such as Glaucoma).

Ocu-GLO Rx is a nutraceutical comprised of 12 natural antioxidants, including grapeseed extract, lutein and omega-3 fatty acids (GLO). Each of these key ingredients has not been available in a combination blend until veterinary ophthalmologists formulated all 12 of them into a natural, single-dose nutraceutical of the highest quality."

The ingredients in Ocu-GLO Rx

The 12 antioxidants in Ocu-GLO Rx act synergistically to support canine eye health. The first three, Grapeseed extract, Lutein/zeaxanthanin, and Omega 3 fatty acids (GLO), are combined in a proprietary blend in the optimal doses for canine eye health.

Grapeseed Extract:
-Potent antioxidant derived from grapeseeds (NOT from toxic grapeskins)
-More potent free radical scavenger than Vitamin C and Vitamin E

Lutein and Zeaxanthin:
-Potent carotenoid antioxidants necessary for protection of the retina
-Decrease the risk and severity of certain retinal diseases and cataracts
-Proven to improve overall immune health (Kim, H. W., B. P. Chew, et al. (2000). Dietary lutein stimulates immune response in the canine. Vet Immunol Immunopathol 74(3-4): 315-327.)

Omega 3 Fatty Acids:
-Essential (required) fatty acids cannot be synthesized in the body
-DHA is delivered to the retinal tissue, where it is incorporated into the photoreceptors (rods and cones) for use in vision physiologic function.
