It’s a beautiful and curious sight to see a dog that has two or more different eye colors. This condition, known as heterochromia, it due to variations in the amount of melanin pigment in a dog’s iris. This condition can be either inherited or acquired at some point.
In the inherited scenario, certain genes are passed from one or both parents. In this case, you’ll see the different colored eyes around 16 weeks as they mature. However, if an adult dogs exhibits these symptoms, it can be a sign of a health problem, and you should seek your vet’s advice as soon as possible.
There are also different types of heterochromia ranging from the entire iris being one solid color to seeing multiple colors in the same iris. Breed can also play a factor. For instance, it’s estimated that around 10% of Siberian Huskies have heterochromia.
