Webinar “Tear Film Dysfunction in Dogs and Cats – Way More Than a Low STT Result”

The webinar subject

Many veterinarians think about keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) or “dry eye” as a disease of dogs due to autoimmune destruction of the lacrimal gland, diagnosed by a low STT result, and largely responsive to topical cyclosporine administration. While this is undoubtedly a common manifestation of tear film dysfunction, in this session we will consider other causes, other presentations, and other diagnostic tests and treatments. And we will think about cats as not simply being “small dogs”. The goal will be to introduce a new philosophical and practical approach to dry eye disease in small animal ophthalmology centered on the growing concept in human medicine of the Integrated Functional Lacrimal Unit.
