The Schirmer tear test (STT) (Schirmer test--Ophthalmos, Sao Paulo, Brazil), breakup time test (BUTT) (Fluoresceina strips--Ophtalmos, Sao Paulo, Brazil) and Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometry (C-B) (Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometer, Luneau Ophthalmologie, Paris), starting with 4-cm stimulus length, were conducted under physical restraint.
Ophthalmic parameters found for Brazilian adult Shih Tzu dogs were not different from those reported for other breeds, except for the breakup time of the tear film and the Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometry values, which were below and above the average for the species, respectively.
Table 1--The mean, median and standard error values for the Schirmer tear test (STT--millimeters per minute); breakup time test (BUTT--seconds); Cochet-Bonnet aesthesiometry (C-B--milimeters); specular microscopy, cell density (DE--cells per square millimeter), hexagonality (HE--percentage); endothelial cell area (CA--square micrometers) and corneal thickness (CT--millimeters); laser flaremetry (LF--photons per millisecond); intraocular pressure (IOP--millimeters of mercury); and the ultrasound, on the axial length of the eyeball (AL--mm), lens thickness (LT--millimeters), the length of the anterior (AC--millimeters) and vitreous (VC--millimeters) chambers measured in 24 eyes of adult Shih Tzu dogs from a kennel in Jaboticabal, SP, 2013.
