Entropian is a condition in which the eyelids roll inward, whereas distichiasis is a condition in which extra eyelashes grow from the lids.

Entropic can develop from an injury to the eye, or your pet may be born with it.

When the eyelid rolls inward, lid hairs and lashes rub up against the cornea, which can lead to chronic conjunctivitis, ocular discharge, tearing, excess blinking and ulceration.

Ask Dr. Flanders to double check your pets eye today if you are wondering if this is a possibility with your pet.
