Below is a partial transcript.

Adam Christman, DVM, MBA: What do you think are the top two or three corneal diseases that you see in dogs and cats?

DJ Haeussler, DVM, MS, DACVO: The most common condition that I see is a corneal ulcer in both dogs and cats. Then I would say that probably the secondary one would be dry eye in dogs. Then in cats, we deal with a lot of herpetic keratitis and conjunctivitis from feline herpes virus.

Christman: Do you think it's in that particular order? Does it vary on popularity and commonality? Which ones are most important?
