Animal Eye Diseases & Conditions
Your pet’s eyes tell a unique story, whether they express emotion or hold the tell-tale signs of injury, illness, or infection.
Fortunately, many cat and dog eye infections have fairly simple treatment options, though it’s always best to have your pet examined by a professional to avoid complications.
From minor eye infections, such as conjunctivitis in dogs or cats, to more serious eye diseases, including cataracts or glaucoma, Armour Veterinary Ophthalmology specializes in the care and treatment of eye disease for animals.
