Fluorescein angiography of the normal and diseased ocular fundi of the laboratory dog.


A method was determined for fluorescein angiography of the ocular fundus of the laboratory Beagle, using a portable fluorescein fundus camera. A 10% solution of sodium fluorescein was injected by a syringe pump in the right cephalic vein of each dog. Acepromazine maleate (0.5 mg/kg, IV) with ketamine hydrochloride (10 mg/kg, IM) provided chemical restraint. Of the 10-, 25-, and 50-mg/kg dosages of fluorescein, 25 mg/kg permitted satisfactory fluorescence of the choroidal and retinal vasculature and the recirculation phase. High-speed color film permitted good quality photography of the tapetal and nontapetal retinal vessels. Reduced retinal blood vessel and pigment epithelium permeability was demonstrated by fluorescein angiography in dogs with chorioretinitis associated with systemic blastomycosis, retinitis associated with distemper, serous retinal detachment, and preretinal hemorrhage.
