    I have a 9 month old lab that was diagnosed by the vet with a corneal ulcer, so we did the meds for a few weeks and had 3 different recheck and she now tells us that she cant help us anymore and is sending us to a veterinary ophthalmology So my questions is has anyone every heard of this or gone through it ? What causes this and what is the outcome ?
    Thanks for your help

    Although indolent (chronic, unhealing) corneal ulcers are not common in this breed, this may be what you are dealing with. The specialist will likely debride (remove tissue) from the cornea for culture and to promote healing.

    Topical medications should then resolve the problem. If however there is an underlying issue, and the cornea remains unhealed, you should consult a vet homeopath to promote natural healing.
