I'm not a veterinarian, but cloudy and red eyes along with vision problems in dogs can indicate various potential issues. It is important to consult a veterinarian for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Here are a few possible causes for your rottweiler's symptoms:

  1. Cataracts: Cataracts occur when the lens of the eye becomes clouded, resulting in vision impairment. This can be age-related or caused by other underlying health conditions.
  2. Glaucoma: Glaucoma is a condition characterized by increased pressure within the eye, leading to optic nerve damage and vision loss. Symptoms often include cloudy eyes, redness, and pain.
  3. Conjunctivitis: Also known as "pink eye," conjunctivitis is an inflammation or infection of the outermost layer of the eye and inner surface of the eyelids. It can cause redness, discharge, excessive tearing, and discomfort.
  4. Eye infections: Bacterial or viral infections can affect the eyes, leading to inflammation, redness, and cloudiness. Some common eye infections are keratitis and uveitis.
  5. Progressive retinal atrophy (PRA): PRA is an inherited degenerative disease that causes gradual vision loss and can result in blindness.

It's crucial to schedule an examination with a veterinarian who can evaluate your rottweiler's eyes thoroughly and provide an accurate diagnosis. Treatment options will depend on the underlying cause of the visual impairment.
