agony auntGreetings Fellow Pekies,

It is Monday again  and we trust that you have all had a good week and that anyone who was affected by the terrible fires that caused havoc and much untold devastation all over the Western Cape.

Keratopathy occurs as a result of a combination of anatomic features including exophthalmos (protrusion of the eyeball), lagophthalmos (inability to close the eyelids completely) and macroblepharon (an exceptionally large eyelid opening, often associated with lower lid entropion). The result is inadequate blinking, and therefore reduced protection for the eye. Affected dogs experience chronic discomfort and are prone to ulceration of the cornea.
