Abstract

A 12-yr-old intact male red wolf (Canis rufus) diagnosed with bilateral idiopathic dry eye was treated with subconjunctival drug delivery implants designed to release therapeutic levels of cyclosporine from 12–24 mo. Normal tear production and corneal health has been maintained, alleviating the need for daily handling of the animal for topical medication.
