Dry eye is also a common cause of corneal ulcers or


corneal erosions, which are acutely painful defects in the uppermost surface of the eye. Affected pets will experience squinting, tearing, redness around the eye and may paw at it due to the discomfort. The pet should be examined immedi- ately if these symptoms occur. The photo on the right shows stain outlining a large corneal erosion (Photo courtesy of Dr. Andrew Melville-Smith). There is a less common form of tear


defect in which the pet produces plenty of tear, but it is very watery and lacks the mucoid component, evaporating so readily that it provides little protection to the cornea. This is called a tear quality deficiency since the quantity of tears is actually adequate. It will, however, cause


much the same symptoms. An eye that is simply too dry will exhibit irritation and thick, yellow-green mucus that con- stantly accumulates in and around the affected eye(s). In summary, short-nosed breeds are predisposed to cer-


tain eye problems that can lead to corneal damage and vision loss if unrecognized. Many of these problems are common in other breeds as well. If your pet has excessive discharge from the eyes, squinting or darkening of the cornea (eye surface), please have them examined to determine if they have an eye- lid or tear problem that needs to be addressed. The majority of these problems can be treated or reversed before the dog loses vision or suffers discomfort if we recognize the problem before it progresses to the point of being irreversible. U
