Heterochromia in dogs and cats

What is heterochromia? Why does it arise and from whom does it occur? Is heterochromia dangerous to health? We will answer these questions in our article.
Heterochromia – what is it?
Heterochromia is a difference in the color of the eyes, skin, or hairline arising from a deficiency or excess of melanin. Most often, this term means “disagreement.”Eye heterochromia can be:

full: when the iris of one eye differs from the other in color. For example, one eye is brown, the other is blue;

partial, sectorial: when the iris is painted in different colors. For example, on the caret of the iris there are blue spots.

This feature is found in humans and animals and can be congenital or acquired.

Different eye color gives the exterior a special zest, its own charm. Heterochromia has helped to achieve popularity for many famous people, and “odd-eyed” cats and dogs in the world of pets are worth its weight in gold!

In animals, complete heterochromia, in which one eye is blue, is more common.

Heterochromia in cats
Cats of a white color are predisposed to heterochromia: pure white or with a dominant white color in color.

Often you can meet the multi-eyed Turkish Angora or Turkish Van. These breeds have a predisposition to heterochromia, but other cats may also be heterogeneous.

Heterochromia in dogs
Champions in “odds” among dogs include husky, border collie, Australian shepherd, collie and sheltie. In other (including purebred) dogs, this symptom also occurs, but less frequently.

Is heterochromia dangerous?
Congenital heterochromia in most cases is harmless and does not affect visual acuity. This is a trait that is inherited and is characteristic of many breeds.

However, there are cases when the eye color of the animal suddenly changes, for example, due to injury or illness. Then the pet will need treatment.

A pet with different eyes is recommended to be shown to a veterinarian. He will determine the cause of heterochromia and give appropriate instructions. Do not worry: as a rule, caring for animals with different eyes is completely standard.
