A Clinical Case from the Archives : 03/06/2005

What is amiss with the eyes of this young Bulldog puppy? Can it be corrected?

This animal has bilateral congenital exotropic strabismus. Here the defect appears to be in the orbital bone structure although without a high resolution ultrasound examination investigation of extraocular muscle anatomy is very difficult. Strabismus, though common in children, is very rare in dogs. The Bichon shownin this second picture developed a unilateral strabismus after injury, a far more common cause than the congenital problem seenin the puppy.
