Corneal Ulcer in Dogs

Corneal ulcers in dogs are a serious and common eye disease that is not only painful but can also affect the animal’s vision. In this article, we look at the different aspects of corneal ulcers in dogs, including the causes, symptoms, and treatment options.

Causes of corneal ulcers

Corneal ulcers in dogs occur when the corneal epithelium, the outer layer of the cornea, becomes damaged. This damage can arise for various reasons:

  1. Trauma: The most common cause is trauma, such as scratches, foreign bodies or friction of the eyelids on the cornea.
  2. Infections: Bacterial or viral infections can also lead to ulcers.
  3. Eye diseases: Certain eye diseases, such as dry eye (keratoconjunctivitis sicca) or inflammation of the eyelids, can damage the cornea.
  4. Congenital problems: Some breeds are known to have structural problems with the eyelids or eyelashes, which can lead to a corneal ulcer.

Symptoms of a corneal ulcer

Symptoms of a corneal ulcer in dogs can vary but often include:

  • Redness and swelling of the eye
  • Increased blinking or scratching at the eye
  • Tearing
  • Clouding of the cornea
  • Visible damage to the cornea

It is important to pay attention to these signs and contact a veterinarian immediately if you suspect a corneal ulcer.

Treatment of corneal ulcers

Importance of Vitamin A

Vitamin A plays a crucial role in the treatment of corneal ulcers. This “eye vitamin” supports the regeneration of the cornea and helps maintain the health of the surface of the eye.

Therapeutic measures

  • Elimination of the causes: First, triggering and predisposing factors must be identified and eliminated.
  • Individual therapy: Depending on the size and depth of the ulcer, the therapy is adjusted individually.
  • Treatment of non-cleared and progressive ulcers: These cases require special treatment similar to boxer keratitis. These include touching with Tinctura jodi, extensive debridement of the loose corneal epithelium, antibiotic eye ointment and local treatment with 1% atropine.
  • Use of eye drops containing atropine: These are indicated for all painful corneal defects, even if iritis cannot yet be diagnosed. It is important to rule out glaucoma and keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) in advance.

Product recommendation

For general health and especially to support the dog’s eye health, we recommend DOG FIT by PreThis® CARE senior. This supplement contains important nutrients, including the essential eye vitamin A, which promotes eye health and may aid in the recovery of corneal ulcers.


Corneal ulcers in dogs can be a serious health problem in dogs. However, with the right treatment and support, the dog’s health and well-being can be maintained and promoted.

Vestibular syndrome in dogs

Vestibular syndrome in dogs can be frightening for dog owners as it can occur suddenly and without warning. This condition affects the vestibular organ in the inner ear and can cause a variety of symptoms. In this article, we will take a closer look at the causes, symptoms and treatment approaches of vestibular syndrome in dogs.

Causes of vestibular syndrome in dogs

Vestibular syndrome can have various causes, including:

  1. Idiopathic vestibular syndrome: This is the most common form of the syndrome and occurs without a known cause. It often affects older dogs and can occur suddenly.
  2. Otitis interna: Inflammation of the inner ear, such as middle ear inflammation, can affect the organ of balance.
  3. Tumours: Tumours in the inner ear or in the area of the brain that controls the organ of balance can cause the syndrome.
  4. Injuries: Head injuries, falls or other traumatic events can trigger vestibular syndrome.

Symptoms of vestibular syndrome

The symptoms of vestibular syndrome can vary in dogs, but are often severe and can include

  • Dizziness: Dogs with this syndrome often have difficulty keeping their balance and may stumble or stagger.
  • Nystagmus: This is an uncontrollable, rhythmic twitching of the eyes.
  • Nausea: Some dogs may vomit.
  • Head tilt: The dog’s head may be tilted to one side.
  • Loss of appetite: Dogs with vestibular syndrome often have difficulty eating.

Treatment approaches for a disorder of the vestibular apparatus

The treatment of vestibular syndrome in dogs depends on the underlying cause. For idiopathic vestibular syndrome, the vet may prescribe symptom relief, such as anti-nausea medication. We prefer natural remedies such as: Charcoal tablets or healing clay. However, in severe cases, intravenous hydration may be necessary to prevent dehydration.

If an underlying cause, such as a middle ear infection, is identified, targeted treatment may be required.

The role of vitamin B in recovery

An important support in the recovery of dogs with vestibular syndrome can be an adequate supply of B vitamins. Vitamin B12 and B6 in particular play a role in the function of the nervous system and can help to alleviate symptoms.

Conclusion on the disease

Vestibular syndrome can be a challenge for dog owners, but with timely support and the right care, a good recovery can be achieved. Treatment depends on the underlying cause, but a balanced diet and B vitamins can make a positive contribution to recovery.

Das Cauda Equina Syndrom bei Hunden
Cauda equina Syndrom in dogs

Cauda equina syndrome in dogs is a serious neurological disorder affecting the lower sections of the spinal cord. The name of the syndrome is Latin and means “horse’s tail”, referring to the structure of the nerve fibres located in this area. Learn the signs, causes and treatment options now to ensure the best quality of life for your four-legged friend.

Causes of cauda equina syndrome

What triggers the inflammation of the nerve root in dogs?

The causes can be many: congenital, due to ageing or the result of an injury. It often results from a combination of factors such as degenerative myelopathy, herniated discs, or spinal stenosis. Genetic predisposition and unfavourable spinal anatomy are other possible causes.

Identifying symptoms

Recognising the signs of cauda equina syndrome

Common symptoms include difficulty standing up, pain in the back, muscle atrophy and even paralysis in the hind legs. Some dogs show an altered gait or difficulty defecating and urinating. Symptoms can be gradual or acute, depending on the underlying cause.

Treatment of cauda equina syndrome

Therapeutic approaches and options

Treatment depends on the severity and cause of cauda equina syndrome. Conservative treatments, including pain management and physiotherapy, are used for mild cases. In more severe cases, surgical intervention may be required to reduce pressure on the nerves and stop the progression of the condition.

B vitamins to support nerve regeneration

The importance of B vitamins for dogs with neurological conditions

B vitamins play a crucial role in nervous system health and can support regeneration in the case of neurological conditions such as cauda equina syndrome. They are involved in nerve cell signalling and promote the health and function of nerve tissue. An adequate supply can significantly improve your dog’s quality of life and support progress in the management of the condition.

dog gingivitis

Dental and oral health is not only crucial for us humans, but also for our four-legged friends. Gum inflammation, also known as gingivitis, is a common problem in dogs and can have serious effects on their health. Unfortunately, gingivitis is still underestimated by many dog owners.

In this article, we will take an in-depth look at the causes, symptoms and natural treatments for gingivitis in dogs.

What causes gingivitis in dogs?

Gingivitis in dogs is often caused by bacteria. Excessive build-up of plaque and tartar provide the ideal breeding ground for harmful bacteria. If these bacteria are not removed, they lead to inflammation of the gums. However, there are other factors that can contribute to the development of gingivitis:

  • Poor diet: An unbalanced diet can weaken the dog’s immune system and increase its susceptibility to gingivitis. Dry food is not part of a healthy diet.
  • Injuries or foreign objects: Gum inflammation can also be triggered by injuries or foreign objects getting between the teeth.
  • Genetics: Some breeds are more prone to gum problems than others. Small breeds are more prone to developing gingivitis because they have too close a tooth space due to breeding. This is not what nature intended.

Symptoms of gingivitis in dogs

It is important to recognise the symptoms of gingivitis in dogs, as untreated inflammation can lead to more serious problems. Common signs include:

  • Redness and swelling of the gums
  • Bad breath
  • Tartar formation
  • Tooth loss
  • Salivation
  • Irritability or pain when touching the mouth

The dangers of untreated gingivitis

If gingivitis is not treated, the harmful bacteria can enter the bloodstream and spread throughout the dog’s body. This can lead to serious health problems, including:

  • Heart problems: Bacteria that travel through the body can infect the heart and lead to life-threatening conditions.
  • Kidney and liver problems: The spread of bacteria can also damage the kidneys and liver, leading to organ failure.
  • Worsening of other conditions: If the dog is already suffering from other health problems, untreated gingivitis can make them worse.

Natural treatment for gingivitis in dogs

The good news is that gingivitis in dogs can often be treated naturally without resorting to chemical remedies. Antibacterial herbs can be an effective solution to fight harmful bacteria and relieve inflammation.

An easy way to support your dog’s dental health is to add DOG FIT by PreThis® FRESH to their diet. This natural supplement contains 16 antibacterial herbs that help reduce gingivitis and promote oral health in dogs. As it is ingested with food, it also tackles bacterial foci in the body. A welcome added benefit: The herbs harmonise digestion, especially in cases of flatulence.


In combination with a balanced diet and regular dental hygiene with species-appropriate chewing material (so-called Dentasticks are not chewing material – pay attention to the declaration!), DOG FIT by PreThis® FRESH can help to fight the dog’s gingivitis and support its general health. If the dog also suffers from tartar, then the combination with DOG FIT by PreThis®WHITE dental plus is recommended. Both preparations can also be found in the shop in an affordable Dental Care Set for Dogs. After all, healthy oral health is crucial for the well-being and quality of life of our beloved four-legged friends.

Der Wolf, wie der Hund ein Schlingfresser

Dogs have been our faithful companions for thousands of years and have a long evolutionary history behind them. But while many aspects of their behaviour have changed over time, one thing has remained constant: their reputation for gobbling up food. In this article, we take a closer look at the background to this behaviour, the reasons why dogs tend to gobble their food and why dry food is nonsense as a miracle cure for cleaning teeth.
