3229. A poodle has eye discharge - Evidence of corneal ulcers

Dec 29, 2017

Tearing is due to corneal ulceration of both eyes.  Some vets prescribe eye drops but not test for corneal ulcerations. The use of fluorescein stain test showed green corneal areas indicating ulcers.

For pet owners, evidence is important to substantiate diagnosis and gain their confidence. Eye discharge for many days would be due to corneal injuries leading to ulcers. Photographic evidence after fluorescein test provides the confirmation.
