Julia Miller, DVM: [Horner's syndrome is] essentially when [pets] have an infection in their middle ear that can actually damage the nerves that are there. And then you can see some neurologic clinical signs associated with that. So their eye could be a little bit too small, they can end up having enophthalamus which means that it shrinks into the head, their third eyelid will prolapse, sometimes you can actually see a little head tilt.
