Dog Surgical Diseases – Conjunctivitis
General conjunctivitis is caused by various stimuli, such as foreign bodies, nasolacrimal duct occlusion, drugs, trauma and other factors. It can also be secondary to the course of various infectious diseases.
The symptoms of this disease mainly include conjunctival hyperemia, photophobia, pain, tearing, and secretion from the corner of the eye. The nature of the disease varies depending on the condition of conjunctivitis. Some are serous, some are mucous or mucopurulent, and some are purulent. The purulent discharge often glues the upper and lower eyelids together. Sometimes inflammation touches the cornea, causing corneal ulcers.
First, for general conjunctivitis, 2% to 3% boric acid water or 0.1% Ethacridine Lactate solution can be used to clean the affected eye. If the exudate has been reduced, 0.5% to 1% zinc sulfate solution can be used to infuse the eye, and Ethacridine Lactate solution can be applied cold. For severe pain, use 2% cocaine hydrochloride solution to instill your eyes.
Second, for purulent conjunctivitis, tetracycline ointment, chlortetracycline ointment, etc. should be applied after carefully washing the affected eye.
