The final part of Bayer Animal Health’s series of “back to basics” educational videos on canine ophthalmology has been released.

In the video, veterinary ophthalmologist and director of Veterinary Vision Ophthalmic Referrals Chris Dixon offers guidance on examining the cornea. He also discusses two common ocular conditions in dogs – corneal ulceration and keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS).

The 15-minute video also includes advice on how to perform a close examination of the cornea, perform a Schirmer tear test and the optimal use of artificial lubrication.

Dr Dixon said: “The third video delves into practical tips that can help assist vets in treating the common ocular condition KCS.”

The previous videos in the series are also available to watch for free:
