Ophthalmology for the Veterinary Practitioner: Revised and Expanded PDF
Ophthalmologic diseases comprise a large proportion of the patients seen by the small animal practitioner. Eye problems are especially frequent in dog breeds with redundant nasal and forehead skin folds, misdirected hairs, or poorly apposed lids, and they cause discomfort to the animal. The large animal practitioner will see eye problems in horses similar to those in small animals, but usually less frequently, and some conditions are specific to the horse.
In cattle, sheep, goats, swine, small mammals, and birds, eye diseases are also generally less frequent than in pet animals, but they may cause considerable problems when larger groups of animals are affected. Breed predisposition and hereditary ophthalmic disorders are frequent in all species, but are mainly recognized in the dog. A knowledge of breeds predisposed to eye anomalies and hereditary eye diseases is of major importance.
In addition, the authors have tried to pay special attention to the recognition of eye abnormalities such as trichiasis, glaucoma, lens luxation, and progressive retinal atrophy, all of which are difficult to diagnose without specialized ophthalmic equipment.
