The Eye Disorders was not only encountered to humankind, but quite a few were encountered to the dogs. The case happened to the multitudinous dog, from the minor case to heavy. The owner’s ignorance of the dog would the cause of the Eye Disorders often result in got a serious disturbance to the dog eyes.
Wrong therapy could make eyes damage more spread. For example drop eye medicines not suitable for the glaucoma or the increasing pressure of the eyeball liquid. Moreover when excessive giving will make destruction of the eyeball that resulted in blindness. To understand various cases of the eyes, based on its anatomy, at least the problem was divided into eyeball problem and the outside of the eyeball problem.
The important part of the eyes that often experienced the disturbance is cornea or the most outside part of the eyeball took the form of the thin layer. This part often experienced the wound (ulcer cornea) because of various matters, the trauma or the bacterial infection. Behind cornea was gotten the liquid that was acknowledged as anterior dumber that often his pressure increased because the rise in the waste of the available liquid was mentioned glaucoma. The liquid pressure increased cause the eyepiece to be pressed, so as to blindness happen. Whereas that was meant by cataracts is eyepiece that caused by the age factor. Inflammation of the iris or the slice often mentioned as uveitis. So itâs clear, that must be careful in naming the magma changes to the eyes because not all the changes in the cornea were cataracts.
Others Eye Disorders of the outside of the eyeball was incision. Incision was the waste of the eyes that often were encountered to the corner of the eyes. The cause of incision was varied among them because of the foreign object or because of buckling the eyelids had a direction the eyeball so as the eyes as being stabbed. The other cause of incision could take the form of the germs infection or the allergy so as the eyes were felt itchy. Generally when the infection or the interior allergy from the eyelids happening reddened or became excited. Incision also could happen because obstruction of the eyes tract.
Eye Disorders that also occurred often encountered were cherry eye or the issuing of the middle eyelids so it is looks like a stand out eyes that similar to cherry that only could be treating by operation. The trauma that often happened is pacula or caused by the bite that often caused by the issuing of the eyeball. It is only occurred on pekingese dogs. It should immediately handled by putting again the eyeball and sewing the eyelids so as to keep the eyeball went again out. In the difficult incident was the eyeball could not have functioned again then better be released or amputated so it will not cause the continued infection.
From the analysis above could be concluded that itâs need to be careful in handling the dog eye disorders because not all eyes medicine could overcome the problem of the eyes even when causing the bigger problem.

It is nearly impossible to tell if a dog has fever without taking his temperature first. One of the best outer signs that your dog may not be feeling well nor has fever is lethargy, meaning that he is just lying around not wanting to play, drink or eat.
If your dog’s temperature is over 104 degrees, you will need to get him to the vet. If it is below 104 degrees, keep him cool and hydrated.
If you are taking the temperature with a mercury thermometer, you will need to leave it in approximately three to four minutes before reading it.
To read the thermometer, gently slide it out of the rectum and wipe the inserted end off with either a baby wipe or a dry tissue.
Have someone assist you in keeping your dog still. If he is not feeling well, he may be more prone to biting.
If you are taking his temperature with a mercury thermometer, you will have to shake the mercury down. If you are using an electronic thermometer, it should be ready to go.
After reading the thermometer, wipe it down with an alcohol pad or a germicide wipe to ensure that it is clean.
Slowly and gently lift your dog’s tail to insert the lubricated end of the thermometer right inside of his rectum.

The word cystitis means inflammation of the bladder. Cystitis is a disease that affects both male and female, in the cat. Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (FLUTD), also known as FUS (Feline Urinary Syndrome) – syndrome in cat’s urine or FLUTD Feline Lower Urinary Tract Disease (a disease of lower urinary tract of the cat) is a term most comprehensive of the conditions to the cause inflammation of the lower urinary tract. Cats with are predominantly male with signs similar to those of cystitis. In some cats, the formation of crystals or a mucus plug in the urethra (the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside) can cause an obstruction to the passage of urine. If not treated early, complete obstruction can severely damage the kidneys and even be fatal.
What are the clinical signs?
The cat urine more often than usual, by issuing a few drops of urine each time. We tend to confuse this behavior with constipation. Many cats will urinate outside their litter. It should not be punished for such behavior. Sometimes, only changes in the cat’s behavior will be recorded such as leakage, agitation, inactivity, or refusal to eat.
If a blockage is formed, preventing the evacuation of urine from the bladder, the signs are growing very rapidly. In 48 hours, most cats die of kidney failure and retention of toxins that should have been eliminated from the kidneys. As the urethra is larger in the female, emergencies by total obstruction, only concern is almost always the male.
Warning: a male cat that cannot urinate needs emergency veterinary care. Indeed, this difficulty urinating can be caused by urinary obstruction!
What is the cause?
The problem has not yet been precisely determined. Inflammatory disease is now suspected as the origin, but some cats are affected by urinary stones or infection (rare in contrast to humans). There are many causes and, therefore, additional tests are performed (urine analysis, ultrasound, radiography).
What are the risk factors?
The presence of certain minerals in high quantities in the diet can increase the likelihood of crystal formation in urine. Magnesium and phosphorus are the basic components of a very common type of crystal (struvite).
Lack of exercise, life inside an insufficient intake of water, but a poorly cleaned litter box may encourage the development of the disease.
Although there is no particular predisposition gender, urinary obstruction almost always occurs in castrated males, due to the formation of plugs.
How is cystitis treated?
Each cat has cystitis is treated according to the changes in his urine pH, crystals, blood, etc..
If there is an obstruction, it is necessary to pass a catheter into the bladder holding the cat under light anesthesia. The catheter is often left in place for 24 hours. The cat may leave the hospital when he has returned to its normal state and that the obstruction is gone, usually 1 to 3 days. If it shows signs of kidney failure or toxemia, should be given intravenous fluids and keep the cat hospital.
Does Cystitis can reappear?
Cats that have had more than one urethral obstruction can treat by a surgery called a perineal urethrostomy. The purpose of this surgery is to excise the most urethral stricture, the site of election of the obstruction. Although this will prevent an obstruction, it happens that some cats suffer from recurrent cystitis, but less severe and fatal without clogging. This surgical procedure is also used when the urethral obstruction is so severe that it becomes impossible to restore the normal flow of urine.
