My puppy has a clouding effect across his eye. What does this mean?

Your pup may have glaucoma which can be fixed or it may be blind in that eye. Only a vet can tell.
It probably means your puppy has a scratch on the cornea (clear part of the front of the eye). You need to go to the vet so they can examine it, make sure there is nothing in the eye and see how large and deep the scratch is. If it isn't too bad he might need only some ointment to put in his eye. But if it worse then he could need a surgery. If you don't do anything he could lose his eye. If that cornea ruptures it will let all the fluid out of the eye and that isn't a good thing :) So call your vet and make an appointment as soon as possible.
It could be a cataract or the beginnings of glaucoma.
Best to take your puppy to the vet's and have them examine the eye.
Is your puppy a Husky? They have a high tendency toward blindness and it starts with a cloudy look. Hope that's not it. Wish the best for your pup.
How old is the puppy. Usually cataracts cause that in older dogs. My Britney didn't have clouded eyes until he was 14 years old. I agree, you should take him to the vet.
With my old cat (and my current cat), a few times during his life it just turned out to be an eye infection that was treatable with an ointment. Good luck!
