The occurrence of different ophthalmic affections was analysed in different age group, gender, season and breed of dogs. Out of the 28,254 case records of dogs evaluated, 356 case records of dogs were of ocular diseases. The overall per cent occurrence of ocular diseases during this period was 1.26 per cent. Conjunctivitis (27.25%) was the most common ocular disease observed. The per cent occurrence of ocular diseases was highest in puppies (33.71%) and male dogs (80.34%) and was seen highest during Summer season (36.24%). Among different breeds, the highest per cent of ocular diseases was seen in Non-descript dogs (19.94%) followed by Pugs (16.85%) and Labrador retrievers (15.73%). The per cent occurrence of glaucoma was highest in adult dogs (32.14%). Gender wise occurrence of glaucoma was maximum in male dogs (60.71%). Among different breeds, the maximum per cent occurrence of glaucoma was seen in Non descript dogs (25%) followed by Pomeranians (21.43%) and Labrador retrievers (14.29%).
