Caring for Corneal Ulcers in Dogs and Cats
The first time you encounter a corneal ulcer in your pet, it can be quite a puzzling, worrisome experience. One day, your normally placid pooch begins to unexplainably paw at one eye, rub their head into the sofa or begin to shake their head to one side. Your pet may begin to tear excessively, or show sensitivity to light and you may notice that the eye is red and inflamed or seems to be covered in a light film; if the ulcers are smaller in diameter, you may see small, cloudy ‘pin pricks’ on the cornea.
