Animal Eye care
The eye is a susceptible organ. Thus, a minor injury or an underlying disease can significantly impact its function, your pet’s health, and quality of life. Often, eye problems may be more serious and require special attention from an Ophthalmologist rather than a routine eye exam by a general veterinarian.
