Hi everyone. I just started posting on this board recently, just sorta discovered it and I'm kinda hooked at looking at everyone's new daily dog photos. Anyway, cutting to the chase, my beagle Hector (recently DOTD on June 30 -- http://dogoftheday.com/archive/2008/June/30.html) recently (not sure when) developed a cataract on his left eye which my mom and I just noticed tonight. My first questions is, has anyone ever had a dog which had a cataract removed? If so, was it expensive, painful to the dog, etc..?? Please respond. Thank you.
