Indolent or refractory corneal ulcer is a chronic, superficial, nonhealing erosion, usually affecting older dogs, especially Boxers. Its characteristics are failure to heal within 1-2 weeks, a poor attachment of the epithelium surrounding the lesion to the corneal stroma and the fluoresceine staining of the affected area.
