Therefore, Thonglor Pet Hospital launched a survey of dogs that had been hospitalized in the last 10 years. The result showed that the top 3 species that have the most cataract problems are Poodle, Shih Tzu and Yorkshire Terrier respectively. The other most common species are Chihuahua, Miniature Schnauzer, Miniature Pinscher, Pomeranian, English Cocker Spaniel and Labrador Retriever. Cataracts in these breeds are found in all ages but more common in dogs aged 7 years and above which is in accordance with the report and several publications stating that breed and age are the factors. There are also other causes, including diabetes, inflammation in the eyes that comes after an infection, and accidents.” font_container=”tag:h6|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1590496681580{margin-top: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”7359″ img_size=”large”][vc_single_image image=”7360″ img_size=”large” css=”.vc_custom_1593010580652{margin-top: 20px !important;}”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][tek_sectiontitle st_title=”Success Story” st_title_tag=”” st_subtitle_decoration=”” st_separator_enable=”separator_off” st_text_align=”text-left” st_width=”st_fullwidth”][vc_custom_heading text=”This case is a 1-year-old Siberian Husky dog named Jacob. The owner saw that the left eye became opaque. Therefore, he hurried to go to inspect at Thonglor, Rangsit branch
The eye doctor examined in detail and found that the cataract was in an immature stage. The doctor, with the owner’s permission decided to undergo cataract surgery.

Q: Many people may wonder how young dogs have cataracts, why did this happen?
A: The common causes of cataracts come from breed, inherited, diabetic, inflammation and traumatic conditions.
In this case, breed predisposing was suspected because Siberian Husky is a breed that is prone to cataracts.

The next procedure is consisting of 2 steps which are
1. Complete eye examination:
– To ensure that there are no other eye disorders present. Therefore, when the cataract is removed, the dog’s vision should be recovered
– Begin with intraocular pressure measurement (IOP), retinal ultrasonography to examine the structure of the eye and retina
– Finally, using electroretinography to monitor retinal function
2. General physical examination:
– To assess the ASA score
– After blood tests and chest x-ray (in older cases, consider additional heart disease examinations) are acquired, the anesthesiologist will provide the most suitable anesthesia plan for the case.

In this case, IOL technique is suggested. The diameter of the lens is measured by ultrasonography. After determining the size, 12 mm lens is inserted to the dog’s eye and this surgery lasted only 15 minutes with no complications.
Generally, the success rate of cataract surgery is considerably high, resulting in regaining vision. Lens insertion is recommended in every case since it has the benefits of improving vision and prevention of the recurrent cataract.” font_container=”tag:h6|text_align:left” use_theme_fonts=”yes”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row_content_no_spaces” css=”.vc_custom_1593013349084{margin-right: 15px !important;margin-bottom: 25px !important;margin-left: 15px !important;border-top-width: 25px !important;background-color: #009ede !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1515612866550{padding-right: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;}”][vc_row_inner content_placement=”middle” css=”.vc_custom_1592810844260{margin-bottom: 25px !important;padding-top: 35px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_custom_heading text=”Our center provides a wide range of surgical procedures including soft-tissue, orthopedic, spine&neuro, cataract, and endoscopy” font_container=”tag:h6|text_align:left|color:%23ffffff” use_theme_fonts=”yes” css=”.vc_custom_1593013794363{padding-top: 25px !important;}”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][vc_btn title=”Refer for Surgery” style=”outline” color=”default” align=”center” link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Fbogtor.com%2Fportal%2F|title:Portal%20Refer||”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row” css=”.vc_custom_1590497325214{margin-right: 15px !important;margin-left: 15px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1515612866550{padding-right: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;}”][tek_sectiontitle st_title=”Medical Team” st_title_tag=”h4″ st_subtitle_decoration=”” st_separator_enable=”separator_off” st_text_align=”text-left” st_width=”st_fullwidth” css=”.vc_custom_1590498304739{margin-left: 20px !important;}”][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1515612912835{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][tek_team design_style=”creative” title=”Dr. Tasavarin Kanchanachaya” position=”Ophthalomology” image_source=”external_link” ext_image=”https://bogtor.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/IMG_6857-1-1024×1536.jpg” ext_image_size=”https://bogtor.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/acdefinptvx3.jpg” xing_url=”https://bogtor.com/dr-tasavarin-kanchanachaya/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][tek_team design_style=”creative” title=”Dr. Atipon Thummanusarn” position=”Ophthalmology” image_source=”external_link” ext_image=”https://bogtor.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/IMG_5310-1-683×1024.jpg” xing_url=”https://bogtor.com/dr-atipon-thummanusarn/”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][tek_team design_style=”creative” title=”Dr. Pornsom Chamnankit” position=”Ophthalmology” image_source=”external_link” ext_image=”https://bogtor.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/IMG_5535-683×1024.jpg” ext_image_size=”400×450″ xing_url=”https://bogtor.com/dr-pornsom-chamnankit/”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1515612912835{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1515612912835{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1515612912835{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;}”][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
