Nara has something wrong with her left eye. Cataracts? Something else?
She has a vet appointment scheduled for Friday, but in the meantime I'd like to figure out what, if any, eye problems GSDs are prone to get? Her left eye has white/clear-ish bumps on the eyeball that seem raised up. At certain angles, in certain lighting, her left eye looks "milkier" than her right eye, which is why I'm thinking it might be a cataract. I've read that Siberian Huskies are prone to get cataracts, but I've never read about GSDs getting them. If it is not a cataract, what other eye problem might it be? We don't have any up close pictures of her left eye, otherwise I'd post some.
Nara is my first dog, so she's the oldest, and it seems that I will be running into all of the elderly problems with her first. She has been super healthy her whole life. She is only 7.5 years old, and I didn't think problems like this would be happening so early in her life. She seems to act normal and see fine, but I'm sure she might be using her hearing and smell to make up for potential lack of sight on her left side. Not sure though. She is eating and drinking just as always. No changes. She has always had problems with eye goobers in both eyes that turn hard and then run down her face with long boogie-like strands attaching them to her eyes. I've posted on here about the goobers and have tried everyone's suggestions. I've also tried to see if they were linked to food allergies and tried various elimination diets to track down the source, but it turned up nothing.
