I could have posted at least a dozen of photos, which contained dog faeces, all directly in the walking line.
OLM occurs when a migrating larva reaches the eye. It causes a granuloma to form on the retina, causing significant visual impairment and in severe cases even blindness.
There are about 12 new cases of OLM diagnosed annually in the UK. That is twelve cases to many in my opinion. I know first hand the damage OLM can cause, as I knew a family whose little girl was blinded in one eye and only has partial sight in the other. That little girl did not ask for this illness, but unfortunately she will have to live with her blindness for the rest of her life. Due to a selfish dog owner, who probably did not bother to worm their dog. Dogs should be wormed regularly, every three to six months. Use a prescription wormer from a veterinary surgeon.
