FORZA10 Effects on the Conjunctival Flogosis

Allergic conjunctivitis is characterized by hyperaemia and bilateral conjunctival oedema, intense itch and therefore eyes rubbing, has watery eyes and discharge.

Allergic conjunctivitis in cats and dogs may represent a local conjunctival manifestation or a general reaction associated with skin hypersensitivity

CLINICAL SIGNS: allergic conjunctivitis is characterized by hyperaemia and bilateral conjunctival oedema, intense itch and therefore eyes rubbing, has watery eyes and discharge. In an animal with conjunctivitis, we can also observe flogosis around both eyelids (marginal blepharitis) and of the cornea (keratitis), as well as secondary bacterial infections (caused by staphylococcus, in particular). Allergy caused conjunctival flogosis is one of the clinical signs commonly found of IgE mediated atypical dermatitis in dogs. In cats, instead, conjunctivitis caused by general allergic reactions is associated with food hypersensibility and causes intense itch on the head and neck, erythemic wounds and scabs on the eyelids, face excoriations, cheilite and ceruminosa otitis. Sometimes just an anamnesis and clinical aspects are sufficient to diagnose allergy related conjunctivitis, but in complicated and chronic forms these might not be sufficient and other diagnostic auxiliaries (such as cytology, conjunctival coltures or biopsy) are suggested.

The nutritional therapy, consisting of a fish, pineapple and ginseng pet food (FORZA10 Medium Regular Diet) was a remarkable aid for symptom regression (eye inflammation and dermatological problems). We observed a slight decrease in itching and flogistic component. Subjects with eye discharge and conjunctivitis better responded to therapy rather than those with epiphora as the only symptom. Reintroducing the animal's previous diet caused a relapse within 3 days in almost cases. The first symptom to reappear in the majority of cases was periocular or general itch; only in a few cases the first symptom was excessive tear discharge.
