Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am so sorry to hear about your dog's problem with dry eye. This can be a very frustrating disease to deal with for dogs, owners, and vets. Many cases do not respond well to medical treatment. I am attaching an article here for you on the disease which lists the different types of medication that are used to treat KCS. Has your dog tried all of these medications already? How long of a course of the medications has he been on?
IS she on any medications right now?
Do you have any idea of the names of the medications (besides antibiotics) she has been on?
Cyclosporine? Tacrolimus? Mucomyst? If you can give me any idea of the products that have been tried and length of time they were tried, and if the tear production was remeasured after using them?
