Conjunctival swelling and intermittent vomiting in a dog
A Labrador Retriever presented with a sudden onset of a pruritic swelling of the left upper conjunctiva and eyelid, and intermittent vomiting of bile-stained fluid. Physical examination was otherwise unremarkable. In this case report we will discuss main differential diagnoses for ocular tumours and work-up, prognosis and therapy for conjunctival mast cell tumours. Details of clinical staging, treatment and clinical follow-up will be given together with a brief update on clinical management of canine mast cell tumours.
