Dog Dry Eye

Dry Eye'Dry-eye' is a common and serious condition affecting tear production and sight. Tear glands are progressively destroyed, reducing and eventually stopping tear production. The eyes become painful, undesirable changes develop and vision is gradually lost.

It is vital to diagnose this painful condition early, as research shows that early treatment is most effective.

This condition affects some breeds more commonly than others e.g. Cocker Spaniel, West Highland Terrier, King Charles Spaniel and Shih tzu. Dry-eye is not always obvious by looking - tear measurement is needed to check if your dog is affected.
