All-Natural Support for Eye Health in Dogs and Eye Health in Cats
Did you know that studies have found that a loving gaze between a furkiddo and their pet parent strengthens the bond between the two? It’s true! Looking into your pet's eyes is very important for both you and your furbaby! It's vital to check your pet's eye health regularly, which includes at-home eye checks. See additional info for how to do at-home eye exams on your pet.
Our Eye Health Gold Support Kit contains OcuLove and PetOmega 3 to help slow down progressive damage to the eye, support circulation and support eye health.
How NHV’s Supplements Help Proactively Support Against Cataracts in Dogs and Cats and Support Overall Eye Health
Just like humans, your furkiddo relies on their vision to experience a lot of their surroundings, whether it is seeing danger ahead, scanning for friendly faces, or stalking prey. This is especially true if you have a sighthound like an Afghan Hound or a Whippet - they hunt by sight. So if your furry friend is experiencing issues with their vision or eye health, it can be very stressful for them!
OcuLove contains many beneficial properties for overall eye health and may help support your little one against degenerative eye conditions like cataracts in dogs and cats. Ingredients like eyebright have been used for centuries to help relieve itchiness in the eye, inflammation in the eyelids, and help to preserve or improve vision.
PetOmega 3 is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, which support overall eye health in dogs and eye health in cats, help relieve inflammation, and help to improve metabolism.
Both OcuLove and PetOmega 3 contain antioxidant properties to help slow down cell damage and help prevent chronic illnesses and infections.

In a well-lit area, look into your pet's eyes. Their eyes should appear clear and bright with evenly sized pupils. The area around the eyeball should be white. The next step may be a bit challenging but is just as important. Using your thumb (make sure to wash your hands before doing this), gently roll down your pet's lower eyelid to have a look at it. If it is pink, that's very good. If it is red or white, you may want to book an appointment with your vet to check if something is wrong. A rare feature that both cats and dogs have is a third eyelid. This can range from whitish to pinkish and can be found under the other eyelids closer to the nose. The third eyelid protects their eyes from getting scratched.
Other Signs of Eye Problems in Pets
In addition to unequal pupil sizes and red or white eyelids, pay attention to these other signs and symptoms:
- Discharge & crustiness
- Tear-stained fur around the eyes
- Squinting or closed eye(s)
- Cloudiness, dryness or changes in eye color
- A visible third eyelid

What causes cataracts in cats?
Cataracts in cats may develop due to:
- Poor diet
- Genetic factors
- Natural aging process
- Trauma to the eye
- Metabolic disorders
- Progressive conditions such as diabetes or hypertension
Is there a cure for cataracts in dogs without surgery?
