Is your dog suffering from Dry Eye?
Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS), commonly referred to as "Dry Eye", is one of the most common dog eye problems. Dry Eye affects one in 22 of all dogs in the UK (1). Sadly, if left untreated the condition can lead to loss of sight. Diagnosis of Dry Eye involves a simple 60 second test by your vet. With the right treatment, Dry Eye can be managed long term. Both the cause and signs of Dry Eye will need to be treated.
