Severe Corneal Adema with Neovascularization in Dog

by Nataliya

8/28 - our 2 year old male shar-pei went in to the vet with a simple corneal ulcer in his left eye.

8/31 - the ulcer was healing nicely.
9/7 - on the way to recovery.
9/17 - we noticed the eye was cloudy and starting to develop a red bloody mass on it.

Today most of the eye is completely red. The eye is not bothering him, he is keeping it open and not attempting to scratch unless we put flurobiprofen drops in it or the neopolybac, which he is still on as per doctors orders.

He is eating fine, sleeping fine, has no vomiting and his stool is fine. He is a happy, playful dog. Our vet is at a loss.

Any ideas on whether this is part of the normal healing process for a corneal ulcer?

Does any of this sound normal?

We have an appointment with a veterinary opthamologist on Wednesday but are definitely concerned and wondering whether we need to go sooner.

My Online Vet Response for Severe Corneal Edema with Neovascularization in dog

Hi Nataliya,
It is difficult to see the corneal lesion in your Shar-pei's left eye from the photo. From your description of events, that is not a normal progression for an ulcer to heal. There is either an underlying disease, infection or other 'dysplasia' occurring in the cornea. Any entropion of the eyelids, causing abrasion?

Seeing an ophthalmologist as soon as possible would be best. In the meantime, using olive oil as a lubricant in the eye, 2-3 drops several times a day, and Vit E (puncture the capsule and apply 2-3 drops into his eye 2 times daily.

Also, by mouth, give him the homeopathic remedy Calcarea carbonica 6c or 12c (either dry pellet or dissolved into Spring water) two to three times daily for the next week may start the healing process. And seeking the help of a holistic veterinarian, to help with nutrition, supplements, and immune support would also be beneficial.
