The study was aimed to perform B-mode ocular ultrasonography in the dogs to evaluate intraocular structures. 75 dogs irrespective of the age, breed and sex that were presented during the period of August 2019 to December 2020 to University Veterinary Hospitals at Mannuthy and Kokkalai. Among the 75 dogs, 55 dogs were presented with various ocular affections and 20 dogs with clinically normal eyes subjected to the comparative study. Of the 55 dogs, biometry for various ocular parameters were recorded in 50 dogs. All the dogs were subjected to routine clinical and ophthalmic examinations. B-mode scan was performed with manual restraint. Corneal desensitization was achieved by using topical anesthetic, 0.5% proparacaine hydrochloride. Biometry for ocular parameters like axial length of the eye (D1), vitreous chamber depth (D2), lens diameter (D3) and lens depth (D4) were recorded in all the dogs which differed significantly within the same group and between groups and between normal eyes and affected eyes. Various pathological lesions were diagnosed and imaged in rest of the five dogs whose ocular biometry was not included in the current study.
