A Clinical Case from the Archives : 15/01/2009

This Springer Spaniel has had an irritated eye for some time. What can you see that might be causing this?

This is a chalazion or a lipogranuloma of the Meibomian gland. It has become hard and concreted given substantial irritation, and needs to be resolved with hot compresses which make the lipids more fluid and allow them to exit the gland. In unresponsive cases curretage or resection might be required but this is rare.
