Dry eyes are caused by an inadequate tear production. The eye is dry and uncomfortable because it does not produce enough tears to be healthy. This is mostly caused by the Keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) or dry eye syndrome. Dry eyes are most commonly caused by abnormal activity of the immune system. When you notice your dog or cat having dry eyes, it is advised to consult a veterinarian to determine the exact cause and treatment.
When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
