In canine ocular discharge, also called epiphora, one or both of the dog's eyes water more intensely. There can be two reasons for this: Too much fluid is produced by the lacrimal glands or the tears cannot drain through the nasolacrimal duct. Mucous or purulent secretions are formed near the eyes. But also clear, watery discharge from the eye is possible. The tear fluid flows out of the inner corners of the eyes during this process and, if the coat is light in color, leaves a brownish trail, the tear duct. which is especially common in Poodles, Maltese and Yorkshire Terriers.

Glaucoma (glaucoma) in the dog
Glaucoma in dogs leads to increased, painfulIn dogs suffering from glaucoma, the intraocular prere increases painfully. The increased intraocular prere damages the optic nerve and retina, causing affected dogs to go blind after a short period of time. In many cases only one eye is affected at first. The second eye is then often damaged within eight months. There are many causes of glaucoma.

Cataract in dogs
The disease cataract in dogs leads to a change in the lens of the eye. The lens becomes cloudy and the eye appears gray. The degree of clouding decides how badly the dog can see or whether it even goes completely blind. Cataracts are either congenital or develop with age, with older dogs in particular often developing cataracts without a prior underlying disease (primary cataract). Certain dog breeds can also be affected at a younger age.

Eye discharge in rabbits
Ocular discharge in rabbits occurs with frequency. As a rule, eye discharge in rabbits is an inflammation of the lacrimal duct, where the lacrimal secretion needed to moisten the eyes is drained through the lacrimal duct to the nose. When there is a blockage in the tear duct, there is a buildup of secretions, which is a perfect base for germs to grow.
