Abstract

Objective: To identify bacteria and fungi found on the conjunctival surface of normal horse eyes; to investigate potential risk factors for these microflora; and to determine their susceptibility to common topical ophthalmic antimicrobials. Animals studied: A total of 95 client-owned horses were...

Abstract

Objective - To evaluate the effects of topical antifungal drugs and delivery vehicles on the morphology and proliferation rate of cultured equine keratocytes. Study Population - 16 corneas obtained from 8 apparently ophthalmologically normal horses <0.5 hours after euthanasia for reasons unrelated to the study. Procedures - Primary cultures of equine keratocytes were obtained from corneal stroma and were exposed to several concentrations of 3 commonly used, topically applied antifungals: natamycin, itraconazole, and miconazole. In addition, effects of drug delivery...
