Let’s talk eye disorders
Disorders of the eye are common in cats and dogs. Common signs are redness of the conjunctiva, runny eyes, sticky or purulent discharge, dullness of the cornea, «cherry eye», itch around the eyes, pain, ulceration, changes of the lens, cataract, reduced vision or blindness.
It is important to perform a thorough general and ophthalmological examination including but not limited to tear production test, investigation of the surrounding skin, eyelids, conjuctiva, cornea, uvea, lense, retina etc. Try to uncover any primary disease which can result in disease of the eye (for example distichiasis, ectopic cilia, keratoconjuncitivits sicca, tear canal obstruction, viral infection, allergies, tumors or inherited eye conditions).
