Tip of the Week

Dogs and Their Eyes

This week is more of an informational tip regarding your canine companion.  Dogs do have the ability to see some color.  They possess two cones in their eyes, green and blue versus humans that have three, red, green and blue.  Even though dogs lack the color discrimination that we do, their eyes contain more rods than people.  The rods allow them to see better in the dark and adjust quicker to the dark than we do.  Also, because of the positioning of their eyes, they have a broader field of vision than humans.  About 240 – 280 degrees compared to humans 180 degrees.  Hope you enjoyed these fact tidbits.
