Expected results


What is the expected results of this test on a 8 week old puppy with normal tear production?

  • VioVet Staff

I would expect 15mm of wetting within 1 minute. Many dogs will produce a lot more than this, though small puppies tend to be slower.

When to use


How early can this test be used if you suspect dry eye in a puppy

  • VioVet Staff

The test can be done from any age. I am not sure how well you can interpret the results on puppies under about 12 weeks old, but it will measure tear flow in any age. Dry eye would be unusual in a puppy though, it is normally acquired in older dogs from about 6 years of age.
