Animals also suffer from many of the same human-affecting illnesses such as cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye, corneal ulceration, tumors of the eye, eyelid defects, inflammation, retinal degeneration, and many more. Our aim is to make an accurate assessment, remove pain and put our best foot forward, to retain or restore the condition of your pet.
One of the most common concerns we receive in our pet clinic is eye discharge issues. There are many different types of eye discharge issues, each with its own set of conditions, but some conditions are very difficult to identify and require appropriate examination and veterinary observation to determine the correct diagnosis.
Bring your pooch to us and we will handle the rest. It is important to keep in mind that, some problems can result in blindness or loss of an eye if not treated, so please be mindful of your pet’s health and contact us immediately.
Some of the common causes in eye care that we treat at DCC Animal Hospital
Your pet might have contracted an infection or has injured himself if his eyes are pale, cloudy, red, bleeding, crusty, watery, shrunken, inflamed, immobile, squinted, pigmented or have any growths
We suggest you to clean their eyes everyday especially when they have been outdoors. Remove dirt and discharge gently using cotton balls. If your pet has hair around his eyes, trim it to keep their vision clear.
A balanced and nutritious diet significantly contributes towards better vision. Adding well-cooked eggs and fish or raw/pureed fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, carrots, kale, broccoli to your pet’s food diet can help maintain good eye health.
The veterinarian will ask questions about your pet's eye history such as any previous diagnosis, treatment or medication. The veterinarian will then perform basic ophthalmic test diagnose the problem for proper medication and treatment.
Our pets love being outdoors but that also exposes them to more germs. It becomes difficult to understand the symptoms of eye-related diseases. Our veterinarians are an expert and will give them proper treatment at the right time.
If your dog is showing any symptoms of an eye issue, we advise you to kindly visit an animal hospital before it is too late.
Few common eye problems for dogs are Corneal damage, pink eye, dry eye, eyelid mass, cataract, glaucoma, cherry eye and entropion.
If you examine your dog's eye regularly at home then you will catch the problem at an early stage. Some breeds of dogs and cats are more likely to catch infections.
