5th Annual Gulf-Atlantic Veterinary Conference

Corneal Ulcers – Why Some Just Won’t Heal!

Friday, December 1
3:20 PM - 4:10 PM
Location: Royal Palm Ballroom Salon 7


One of the most common ophthalmic complaints to your practice will be a corneal ulcer. This case-based, photographically driven session will break corneal ulcers up into three groups: simple, non-healing/non-infected, and infected/malacic. We will review how to appropriately treat and manage each group and discuss when and why a referral may be warranted.
