Comprehensive Pet Eye Care

checking-dogs-eye

Learning that something is not right with your pet’s eye or vision can be an incredibly scary situation. An early diagnosis of what is causing the problem will shorten the amount of discomfort that your pet will have to endure and minimize potential complications that may occur. Once we diagnose the problem, treatment can begin immediately. Many common conditions can be treated in-office with medication or flushing; however, more complex conditions that require advanced procedures or surgery may need a referral to a specialist.

Pets can be incredibly good at hiding problems that are occurring, and their owners may not immediately notice a problem until it worsens. However, eye problems can be severe and might lead to permanent eye loss if the correct care is not administered as soon as possible. Observing your pet’s eyes weekly for changes or other signs of a problem can help with early detection. Some of the eye problems or signs that a problem may be developing that pet owners should watch for include:

  • Bulging or Closed Eyes

  • Eye Cloudiness

  • Discharge or Excess Watering

  • Light Avoidance

  • Redness

  • Eye Rubbing

  • Eye Pawing

A Pet-Friendly Hospital

The veterinary team at Advanced Care Veterinary Hospital believes that your cat or dog has access to the best treatment possible for various eye conditions, including corneal ulceration, dry eye, eye irritation, allergies, injuries, blocked tear ducts, conjunctivitis, cataracts or glaucoma. Our team uses specialized equipment and extensive employee training to ensure that every pet is in the best hands possible from the moment they arrive at our facilities. We take special precautions to allow your pet to adjust to new surroundings and eliminate common stressors.

Although we may not be able to make every pet feel like they are at home, we strive to ensure that they feel safe throughout their time in our facilities. From preventative eye care services to surgery when necessary, we want to create a positive experience for both you and your pet through compassion, transparency, respect, and care.
