Q. Hi after 4 days of our Sheltie being on Clindomycin for dental problem, she had Horners disorder in her right eye, it is gone away now

A. Glad to hear that your dog is feeling better and her symptoms are resolving. If you feel that the medication given may have adversely affected your dog, or that she was allergic to it, it is best to contact your local veterinarian. Your vet can help determine if the medication is the cause of the problem, and can also recommend a change in medication to alleviate the problem if she still needs to be taking antibiotics.

Horner's Syndrome (a problem with the nerves of the eye and surrounding it) is often idiopathic, meaning the cause of it is unknown. However it will usually resolve on its own without treatment.
