Dr. J.A. Yecino et al. (Spain)

We have performed a study of the evolution of three different clinical cases of Dry Keratoconjunctivitis ("Dry eye"), in the dog.

In all the cases the Schirmer-test is low to the 5 mm/minute.

Each case has different etiology. (Traumatic, Fire - wind - Liver, and Yin - deficiency - Kidney) and different acupunctural treatment, following the Traditional Chinese Medicine recipes.

From the obtained results, we can conclude that acupuncture can be a good alternative method, in the treatment of this disease.
