Horner’s syndrome can result from blunt trauma or a bite wound, a tumor, intervertebral disc disease, a blood clot, a disease of the middle or inner ear, or a disease of the eye. About half of all cases of Horner’s in dogs are idiopathic, meaning no cause can be identified. In cats, the cause is most often trauma from being hit by a car. Horner’s syndrome doesn’t require any specific treatment, however, your pet will need to be treated for any identified underlying cause of the condition. If no root cause is identified, the best course of action is to allow the disorder to resolve on its own, which typically takes six to eight weeks. During this time, Dr. Becker recommends your pet receive acupuncture treatments.
