Eye Diseases in Dogs: Causes, Symptoms, and Treatment

Eye diseases are a rather serious and common issue among dogs. Dog eye disease refers to various conditions that can affect the vision of a man’s best friend. Unfortunately, not all owners can detect them at an early stage. Firstly, not all dog eye diseases have pronounced symptoms. Secondly, many people simply do not know what signs to pay attention to. When it comes to dog eye infection treatment, timely intervention is crucial to ensuring your pet’s health. However, in the absence of timely detection, eyeball diseases often progress rapidly and can lead to serious consequences. A dog eye disorder can manifest in various ways, so it’s essential to be vigilant about any unusual symptoms. Therefore, owners need to pay attention to the health of their pets and, if necessary, seek veterinary assistance. If you suspect a dog eye bacterial infection, consult a veterinarian for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Causes and Symptoms of Eye Diseases in Dogs

Various factors can lead to these illnesses, including:

  • Injuries
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Hereditary predisposition
  • Exposure to pathogenic microorganisms

Suspicion of these infections can arise from the following symptoms:

  • Abnormal discharges: Increased tearing or the appearance of discharges of an unnatural color (including green or yellow). It’s worth noting that inflammation can occur unilaterally.
  • Redness: Many ophthalmic diseases lead to pronounced redness of the mucous membranes of the eyelids, which is noticeable to the naked eyeball. This is also a manifestation of a common third eyelid infection—inflammation of the conjunctiva.
  • Discomfort: Owners may notice that their small friend squints, scratches them, or constantly has a third eyelid protruding.
  • Impaired vision: Unfortunately, this symptom is not always easy to assess critically. However, if the animal stops responding properly to gestures, this should be cause for concern about illness.
  • Cloudiness and/or whitening of the eyes: Such a symptom can be observed with cataracts, traumatic corneal injuries, and other eyeball structure impairments.
  • Change in color: If the iris acquires an atypical color, this may indicate the appearance of a tumor, the development of an inflammatory process, or a systemic infection.
  • Changes in pupil diameter and behavior: Normally, the size of the pupils in both eyeballs is identical. However, certain neurological disorders, such as retinal or optic nerve damage, may have different diameters. The absence of a pupil reaction to light is also among the possible symptoms of ophthalmic problems.

These illnesses in a man’s best friend are a serious issue. If any of the above-mentioned symptoms appear, it’s essential not to self-medicate or use medications for humans or veterinary drugs but to seek qualified medical help from a veterinarian.
