1-26-13: Corneal Ulcers


The January 26th show discussed corneal ulcers, which is a common eye condition that affects dogs and cats. A corneal ulcer occurs when the protective surface layer of the eye is lost, leaving the deeper layers of the eye exposed. The result is your pet is more prone to injury and infection, and it can be very painful. Many different causes exist, including trauma, abnormalities of the eyelid, decreased blinking, infections, and exposures to irritants. Our expert guest was veterinary ophthalmologist Neal Wasserman from Eye Care for Animals in Las Vegas, Nevada. Dr. Wasserman educated us about some of the advanced treatments and therapies for this disease and answered several listener questions as well.
