What Has Happened To My Pet’s Eye?

sore eye in a dog

An ulcer is a discontinuity or break in a bodily membrane that impedes the organ of which that membrane is a part from continuing its normal functions.

The cornea is a clear, thin membrane at the front of the eye. Corneal ulcers occur fairly frequently in pets and are often the result of a scratch from a twig or a fight. Other causes include reduced tear production leading to drying of the eye, infection and anatomical issues.
