Entropion in Cane Corso dogs

Entropion is a disease where the eyelid bends in, causing the eyelashes or hair to rub against the cornea (outside part of
the eyeball), which can cause pain, ulcers or erosions on the cornea. Additionally, the corneal scarring that may follow
this damage to the cornea may impair vision.

Causes of canine entropion

Entropion can be acquired or congenital. While acquired entropion typically results from trauma or spasm, congenital
entropion typically results from an anatomical deficiency.

Dog entropion signs and symptoms

The skin and hair that rub on the eye’s surface frequently cause pain and irritation. The animal frequently squints, has
watery eyes, and may be in pain from corneal abrasions. Chronic inflammation may leave scars and have a negative
influence on vision.

Prognosis of entropion in dogs

If there has been self-injury and secondary damage, the short-term prognosis can be protected. The cornea may become
ulcerated or abraded as a result of entropion and the ensuing inflammation.
With prompt and adequate management, the long-term prognosis is typically quite positive. Surgery is necessary to
address entropion, but if the procedure is successful, your dog should be OK.

Canine entropion treatment

Entropion can only be successfully treated by surgically rolling the inverted piece of the eyelid back out. When ectropion
is not present, the surgical procedure is typically straightforward but might be sensitive and needs an experienced
surgeon.

Canine entropion prevention

Having any eye injury checked and treated can avoid or at least lessen acquired or secondary entropion related to trauma.
There is certainly some genetic component to hereditary or congenital entropion. The possibility of the gene being
passed on to the next generation must be decreased in order to prevent any genetic disorder.
