Eye Inflammation (Choroid and Retina) in Dogs

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Treatment will be dependent on the physical condition of the patient, but is usually outpatient.

 

Living and Management

 

The possible long-term complications of chorioretinitis include permanent blindness, cataracts, glaucoma, and chronic eye pain. In the worst cases, death can occur secondary to a systemic disease.

 

The expected course and prognosis for chorioretinitis is guarded to good for retaining vision, depending on the amount of retina affected and on the underlying cause. Visual deficits or blindness may be a permanent complication if large areas of the retina were destroyed. Focal and multifocal diseases do not markedly impair vision permanently, but do leave scars on the animal's eyes.
