On Monday I examined this 11 year old yellow lab with a week long history of a “red eye” but comfortable.

My concern is that this may be a corneal SCC.

So, on Thursday I will do a superficial keratectomy with histopathology.

Just interested in how you all would follow-up with adjunctive therapy once the keratectomy site has epithelialized if it turns out to be a SCC.

I know of reports of using 5-FU post keratectomy once epithelialized but there have been reports of different concentrations from 1% to 5%.

Other possibilities? Cryosurgery, Mitomycin C? Aldara?

Thank you in advance for your feed back.
