Results 1-10 of 37 in Eyes
 
1. Anterior Uveitis in Dogs
Anterior uveitis is inflammation that affects the front part of the eye. The iris, which is the colored portion of the eye, is typically involved, and common causes include immmune diseases, infections and trauma.
2. Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF)
The objective of Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF) is to eliminate heritable eye diseases in purebred dogs. CERF accumulates research data, provides eye registration certificates and facilitates education.
3. Cataracts in Dogs
A cataract is a structural change in the lens that leads to a cloudy appearance. As the cataract ages, the dog slowly loses vision. For certain dogs, cataract surgery can vastly improve vision.
4. Cherry Eye in Dogs
Cherry eye is the term used for the prolapse (protrusion) of the third eyelid that may affect one or both eyes. It is found in both dogs and cats and is most common in young dogs, 6 weeks to 2 years of age.
5. Collie Eye Anomaly
Collie eye anomaly (CEA) is a disorder characterized by abnormal development of the eye. It occurs predominantly in the collie breed, although it is also seen in the Shetland sheepdog, the Australian shepherd and the border collie.
6. Conjunctivitis in Dogs
Conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the inner lining of the eyelids and extends from the tear duct to the outer edge of the eye. It is a common eye problem in cats and usually associated with other eye problems.
7. Corneal Degeneration in Dogs
Corneal degeneration is a secondary, pathologic change within the cornea with dense white, grayish-white, or crystalline, and sharp demarcated borders. Corneal degeneration is more common in dogs than cats and may affect any age or breed.
8. Corneal Dystrophy in Dogs
Corneal dystrophy is a primary, inherited, bilateral (both sides), often symmetrical condition of the cornea that is not accompanied by corneal inflammation or systemic disease. Corneal dystrophy is seen in dogs, but it’s very rare in cats.
9. Corneal Laceration in Dogs
Laceration or scratches of the cornea, the thin clear covering of the eye, occur due to trauma to the eye, most commonly a cat scratch, which is particularly common when a new puppy meets the household cat for the first time.
10. Corneal Ulceration in Dogs
Corneal epithelium is constantly being lost and replaced, and its health and thickness depend on a delicate balance between cell loss and regeneration. Corneal ulcers represent either excessive loss or insufficient protection of epithelial cells.
