Speakers & Topics

The Trifecta of Corneal Ulcers

Nathan Kice
DVM, DACVO

Dr. Kice’s presentation will describe the three types of corneal ulcers, their differentiation, and current treatments for each type of ulceration. The goal of the presentation is to give the participant helpful tips for rapid and accurate diagnosis to guide appropriate therapy. Not all corneal ulcers are treated the same way nor is the best treatment always to add on more potent topical antibiotics.

Pigmentary Uveitis in the Golden Retriever
& Systemic Hypertension

Tom Sullivan
DVM, DACVO

Pigmentary Uveitis is a common inherited condition in the Golden Retriever breed. It is very treatable if diagnosed in the early stages, but untreated leads to vision loss and often intractable discomfort due to glaucoma. We will discuss clinical findings and appropriate treatment in the early, mid, and late stages of this condition.

Systemic hypertension leads to predictable changes in appearance and function of the eye. These often resolve with appropriate treatment. We will discuss findings and sequelae in dogs and cats.
