Boulder’s Two-Eyed Beauty!

Our Neighbor Aiden,  A Husky Mix

In a true Boulder spirit, dogs can have two different colored eyes due to a condition called heterochromia. Heterochromia occurs when there is a variation in the distribution of melanin, the pigment that gives color to a dog’s eyes, skin, and fur. There are two types of heterochromia:

1. **Congenital Heterochromia:** This type is present at birth and can be inherited. It’s seen in several breeds, including the Siberian Husky, Australian Shepherd, and Border Collie. In these breeds, the difference in eye color can be a breed characteristic, not necessarily indicating any health issue.

2. **Acquired Heterochromia:** This can occur later in life due to injury, disease, or inflammation. Unlike congenital heterochromia, acquired heterochromia might indicate an underlying health issue that could need veterinary attention.

The variation in eye color doesn’t usually affect a dog’s vision or health in the case of congenital heterochromia. However, if you notice a change in your dog’s eye color (which could indicate acquired heterochromia), it’s a good idea to consult a veterinarian to rule out any potential health issues.
