Q. My 10.5 y.o. Male Borkiepoo has a slight cloudiness in right eye but very mild per veterinarian. Does a half table of zinc help?

A. Zinc is usually more beneficial in skin issues than for the eyes. If your looking to supplement you will probably have better results with glutathione. It is found naturally in eggs and broccoli but if your pup has a sensitive stomach stick to the nutritional supplement. You may also try selenium and vitamin E.
