Elderly Rescue Dog Sees a Cat For the First Time After Getting His Eyesight Restored

An elderly flea-infested dog who was almost completely blind when he was found living on the streets has undergone life-changing surgery to see again.

Vets removed Cappy the terrier's lenses and replaced them with new artificial lenses.

"All of Cappy's post surgery checkups went GREAT!" Vet Ranch Rescue explained in a video. "He has restored vision in BOTH eyes!! He will continue to improve as the swelling from the surgery subsides."

As the video shows, the surgery was such a success that Clappy clasped his eyes on a cat for the first time - although she wasn't quite so excited to see him.

Cappy stayed at the rescue center for seven weeks as he underwent other procedures to fix his rotten teeth and a bad limp. He was later adopted by a family with other elderly terriers.

Footage showed Cappy bounding around his new home and sitting on the porch taking in the sunset.

"He is back to being a happy pup and discovering the world around him," Vet Ranch said.
