Are dogs colour blind

Nope, dogs are not color-blind. They see more than black and white. Dogs do see in color; the difference is that their perception of color is not the same as humans.

For examples, our canine friends cannot distinguish between red, orange, yellow or green. However, they can see various shades of blue and can differentiate between closely related shades of gray that the human eyes are not able to do so.

Dogs’ eyes are also better at seeing in dim light, responding to an image rapidly and detecting the slightest motion.

It is important to protect the dog’s eyes against common unnecessary injuries such as inflammation & corneal ulcers. One of the ways we can do so is to prevent shampoo from getting into their eyes while bathing them because it irritates their sensitive eye tissue, which in turn causes them to rub their eyes and create an ulcer or inflammation.

If you see frequent or unusual discharge from your dogs’ eyes, you should not delay bringing it to the vet because their eye tissues are very sensitive and lasting damage can occur very quickly.
