We have a specific query of ophthalmology
There are also surgical interventions of eyelid (ectropion and entropion, dictiquiasis, valvuloplasties eyelid for resection of tumors, birth defects, lacerations parpebral dark circles), tear glands (cannulation of nasolacrimal duct), cornea (flaps for resolution of complicated ulcers, conjunctival transposition horny), orbit (proptosis of the eyeball, enucleation, gutting and intraocular prosthesis, diagnosis of pathologies retrobulbar ocular ultrasound, CT or MRI, glaucoma, cataracts), conjunctiva (resection of tumors, correction of ectropion cartilage, removal of foreign bodies, introduction of the accessory gland nictante membrane). Why it is important a periodic ophthalmologic examination? Many systemic diseases (affecting the rest of the body) are taking their first symptoms in the eye, thus passing unnoticed for a long time, which slows its diagnosis and treatment. What diseases we can detect more early? Diseases such as: Erlichiosis (disease transmitted by ticks), infections in the prostate or in the uterus, and Leishmania, infectious diseases in cats (leukemia, immunodeficiency, feline infectious peritonitis, etc. ) and the dog (distemper, hepatitis, etc. ) allergies and various types of tumors, all of these diseases are examples of diseases that can diagnose more early through a good ophthalmologic examination, since in many cases begin with ocular signs before displaying general symptoms. Are they equal the eyes of all the animals? The great variety of species and breeds of our pets makes it necessary to assess on an individual basis to each one of them. Being very different from the problems that we are going to find. For example in a French Bulldog to which we can see in a German shepherd, great Danes, Yorkshire terrier, etc. .. Can we predict whether an animal is going to have an eye disease? At present we have media that allow us to detect ocular diseases or genetic estimate whether the animal is predisposed to them and whether you can transmit to their offspring, which is essential to preventive medicine. What signs can help us to know that our animal has a problem in the eye?
- Scratches much the eyes or rub against different objects (the sofa, our leg … )
- Has the eye becomes red or bluish
- Has a eye larger or smaller (even from puppy)
- He wakes up with many bleary eyes and there is that you clean the eye several times a day
- You cry a lot the eyes
- He has left a brown or pink speck in the eye and it seems that this growing
- Do you think your animal has lost vision (it is hard to keep the ball when you play with her, it strikes when going by new sites … ) gradually or suddenly
- You think your pet has cataracts
Or you simply want to evaluate if your dog has any pathological typical of his race (progressive retinal atrophy in the Retriever, eye abnormality of the Collie, pigmentary keratitis in carlins, French Bulldog, Shih Tzu, etc. ..) If your pet has any of these signs or you have any questions about the eyes of your animal, do not hesitate to ask us!
