Corneal ulcer is common ophthalmic affection in canines. Present study was conducted on 35 canines with different ophthalmic affections; corneal ulcer was confirmed in 5 dogs on basis of gross examination and external ophthalmic stain. Corneal ulcer was successfully managed by temporary tarsorrhaphy along with topical atropine, topical broad-spectrum antibiotic and topical Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) -ketorolac. In one male dog it was treated by subconjunctival injection of serum (autologous).
