Awkward sentence[edit]

The lead includes this sentence:

It is a common result of head trauma and pressure exerted on the front of the neck too hard in dogs.

This is unclear and awkward. I would reword it, but I'm not sure what it's trying to say. Something like this could be equivalent, but might also change the meaning:

In dogs, it is commonly a result of head trauma or excessive pressure on the front of the neck.

Does this make sense? Pburka (talk) 02:01, 6 November 2013 (UTC)

merge with exophthalmos[edit]

This is perhaps synonymous with exophthalmos. If it's not, then let's explain what the difference is. -- (talk) 18:29, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

cats and dogs? needs to be merged w/ exophthalmos[edit]

Why is this a veterinary medicine article? I understand it is common in cats and dogs but it is also extremely common in human medicine. In human medicine, exophthalmos and proptosis are synonymous. Please merge with the veterinary section of that article. "Proptosis" searches can be redirected to that article, which clearly states they are synonyms in the introduction.

Otherwise, this article should be re-named "Proptosis (Veterinary Medicine)"
