While I was examining this Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for a corneal problem, I thought I’d cast my new Optibrand ClearView digital fundus camera over its other eye and look at its retina. This lesion jumped out at me! What is it and is it a problem?
This circle is a geographic retinal dysplasia, common in this breed. It isn’t a problem for this dog, causing neither visual problems now or in the future but it won’t pass a BVA Kennel Club or American CERF examination and so won’t be able to be bred from, which will be a problem for its owner!!
