Cocker spaniel diseases (part 2)

Primary seborrhea is a hereditary disease. This is a typical cocker spaniel skin disease. It makes the skin dry or oily with the formation of flakes and a specific smell. From a holistic point of view, seborrhea, like other types of skin diseases, is associated with the nutrition of the cocker spaniel and its immune system. Eating natural foods and using WOLMAR WINSOME® PRO BIO PRO HAIR will make Cocker less susceptible to skin diseases such as seborrhea.

Cocker Spaniel Diseases – Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye, or scientifically, dry keratoconjunctivitis (CCM) occurs due to insufficient tear formation, which keeps the eyes moist. This disease is quite common among cocker spaniels. Typical symptoms include redness and irritation of the eyes, yellowish discharge, and recurring eye infections from time to time. Avoid sulfa drugs, which can lead to the development of dry eye syndrome in cocker.

Cocker Spaniel Diseases – Cherry Eye Syndrome

Cherry Eye Syndrome is a typical American Cocker Spaniel problem. This is a disease in which the prolapse of the lacrimal gland of the third century occurs in the cocker. In this case, the eye turns red and swells, which makes it look like a cherry, hence the name of the disease “cherry eye”. Diagnosing the disease is not at all difficult. If your cocker has cherry eye syndrome, you will find the following signs and symptoms:

– From the inner corner of the eye protrudes swollen glandular tissue pink or red.

– Sometimes mucus is released from the eye.

– The mucous membrane of the eyelid turns red.

– Your cocker spaniel can comb and rub the affected eye.

The preferred treatment method is to reposition the lacrimal gland to its anatomically correct position surgically.

Cocker Spaniel Diseases – Entropion and Ectropion

Entropion is a disease in which the edge of the eyelid is bent inside the eye. Because of this, eyelashes rub on the cornea, causing pain, lacrimation and inflammation. May affect both eyes. Extopion is a cocker disease in which the edge of the eyelid is bent outward. Because of this, tears do not fall into the nasolacrimal canal, but drip arbitrarily. Both entropion and ectopion can be cured with surgery on the eyelid.

Cocker Spaniel Diseases – Distichiasis

Distichiasis is a disease characterized by the presence of an additional row of eyelashes. This is quite common with cocker spaniels. These abnormally growing eyelashes come in contact with the sensitive surface of the eyeball. They are often long and stiff and grow into the sebaceous glands within the eyelids. In most cases, a large number of such irregularly growing eyelashes grow, and they affect both eyes of the cocker. If the disease is not treated, then the eyelashes will constantly rub the eyeball, causing pain and constant lacrimation. As a result, a rupture of the cornea of ​​the eye can occur, which will lead to the formation of a scar and a complete loss of vision of the cocker spaniel.

Symptoms worth paying attention to:

– sideways glance

– Cocker rubs the affected eye with his paws

– The affected eye may look irritated, red, and swollen.

Distichiasis is treated by removing abnormally located eyelashes, which cause the disease. This can be done with cryotherapy, freezing the hair follicles at the base along the eyelid. However, eyelashes often grow back. Another method that helps for a longer period from the repeated growth of eyelashes is the destruction by electric shock.
