Canine Uveitis

Our old dog has had goopy eyes recently. At first we thought it might be due to all of the pollen, but since it’s persisted, today we brought him to Farmers Korner Veterinary Hospital in Breckenridge to have it checked out.

Dr. Richman did a bunch of tests. Pictured above, she’s testing to see if his eyes are producing enough tears. His right eye is a little under average.

She also did test to see if his lens was scratched and a pressure test which showed that he has extremely low pressure in his right eye and not as extreme low pressure in his left.

Dr. Richman diagnosed him with Canine Uveitis (eye inflammation) and gave us drops to use twice a day. We have to return on Saturday so they can test his progress.

Overall the visit went really well, Curtie appreciated that the vet assistant gave him cheeze whiz treats to distract him during the tests!

    Oh, poor Curtis. Uveitis can be very uncomfortable in humans, not sure how dogs react. But steroid eye drops should clear it up quickly. Give him a big hug for us!
