Brown Goo in Your Senior German Shepherd's Eyes? It Could Be Pannus.

Updated: Apr 10

Pannus, otherwise known as Chronic Superficial Keratitis is an autoimmune disease frequently seen in senior German Shepherds. Pannus is a condition that affects the cornea (the clear part of the eye), which typically manifests as a reddish-brown, non-painful lesion on the eye lens and surrounding tissues. Both eyes are typically affected. In some cases, the lesions can grow quite large and affect your dog's vision. While there is no cure for pannus, there are ways to manage it and keep your fur friend comfortable.
