Camrose Veterinary Hospital Provides Pet Eye Care!
Your pet’s eye health is important for his or her health and happiness. Your pet’s wellness visit will include an eye examination. In the event your pet has an eye abnormality, we have the experience to diagnosis and treat many eye-related complications, such as:
- Cataracts–Clouding of the lens, which can cause impaired vision and possible blindness.
- Conjunctivitis–Red and swollen eyes possibly accompanied by a discharge.
- Corneal abrasions–Scratches on your pet’s cornea causing pain and tearing.
- Cherry eye–Named for a cherry-like mass near the eye caused by an enlarged tear gland.
- Epiphora–An excess flow of tears down the face that may lead to fur staining.
- Glaucoma–Increased pressure causes the cornea to become cloudy and the eye to enlarge.
- Ectropion–Turning outward of the eyelid resulting in a drooped appearance.
- Entropion–Rolling inward of the eyelid causing eye irritation and tearing.
