Ophthalmic ultrasound of dogs with different skull conformations

Abstract: The aim of this study was to establish mean values for intraocular structures and analyse if the differences are present for different skull conformations in dogs. In this study, 30 dogs were selected and distributed into three groups according to skull conformation; thus, group 1 (G1) was composed of brachycephalic dogs, group 2 (G2) was composed of mesocephalic dogs and group 3 (G3) was composed of dolichocephalic dogs. A and B-mode ultrasound was performed simultaneously for obtainment of measurements relat… Show more

“…Among the biometry and head measurements relation studied, a positive correlation was observed between the AxL versus the total length and width of the head. Studies in humans (Larsen, 1979), dogs (Beserra et al., 2009; Toni et al., 2013) and cats (Ferreira et al., 2014) reported similar relations between the AxL of the eye and the head measurements. In addition, a positive correlation existed among the ocular radius and the performance, vision and behaviour of dogs (Gácsi et al., 2009; McGreevy et al., 2004).…”

“…The VC measurements in adult cattle were similar to animals of the same breed (1.62 cm) (Potter et al., 2008), greater than those found for the Holstein (1.46 cm) (Potter et al., 2008) and Angus (1.37 cm) (El‐Maghraby et al., 1995) breeds, and less than those found for buffaloes (1.67 cm; (Assadnassab & Fartashvand, 2013) 1.75 cm (Kassab, 2012)). Breed diversity has been suggested as a cause for the differences observed in studies with cattle (Potter et al., 2008) and dogs (Beserra et al., 2009; Toni et al., 2013). The similarities and differences between the breeds may be the cause of the discrepant values obtained in the VC, AxL, AC and LT measurements.…”
