Common Eye Disorders in Dogs
Pet owners can keep small problems from escalating by understanding which eye disorders can affect dogs, including:
- Corneal abrasion
- Cherry eye
Any changes in the health of your dog’s eyes or ability to see clearly should be immediately reported to your vet. You should also schedule an annual check-up appointment for the long-term health of your dogs’ eyes.
Importance of a Timely Veterinarian Check-Up
Your dogs will benefit from a yearly check-up where the vet takes a close look at the structures of the eye to assess their condition. The vet will look for developing disorders to determine if your dogs require additional care. By obtaining timely vet care, you can help your pet retain their ability to see clearly well into their golden years.
Treatment Options for Dogs
The treatment options available for your consideration depend on your dogs’ eye conditions. Your veterinarian will assess the health of your dog’s eyes to determine the underlying condition and best treatments available. You will need to authorize treatment to continue forward with the process of helping your pet make a full recovery. During the appointment, please feel free to ask any questions you may have to ensure you understand how the treatment will benefit your pet and your role in the recovery process.
