Canine cataract is developed with aging and can cause the blindness or surgical treatment if not treated timely. The first observation must be made by pet owners but they do not have proper equipment and knowledge to see the abnormalities. In this paper, we propose an intelligent image processing method to extract canine cataract suspicious object from non-professional equipment such as ordinary digital camera and cellular phone photographs so that even casual owners of pet dog can make a pre-diagnosis of such a surgery-needed disease as soon as possible. The experiment shows that the proposed method is successful in most cases except the dog has similar colored hair to the color of cataract.
