Every puppy born at Karmadi has their eyes examined at 8 weeks of age

by a board certified opthamologist for the following reasons:

There is no excuse for not doing so.

 

 

Retinal dysplasia: abnormal development of the retina present at birth. This condition is non-progressive and recognized in 3 forms: folds, geographic, detached.

 

  • Retinal dysplasia folds: seen ophthalmoscopically as linear, triangular, curved or curvilinear foci of retinal folding. May be single or multiple. In puppies, retinal folds can be seen as a transient phenomenon, resolving as the eye retains maturity.
  • Retinal dysplasia geographic: geographic: an irregularly shaped area of retinal development containing both areas of thinning and areas of elevation. This form may be associated with visual impairment.

 

  • Retinal dysplasia detached: severe retinal disorganization associated with separation of the neurosensory retina from the retinal pigmented epithelium. This form results in visual impairment
