Our vision is to preserve, restore and enhance your pet’s sight
Eye problems in dogs and cats are not necessarily inevitable or inherited, though they are definitely cause for concern.
Because animal eye disorders and diseases can range from simple to serious, it’s best to seek the advice of a veterinarian if your pet experiences any of these symptoms:
- Change in eye color
- Cloudiness or a “film” over the eye
- Discharge or crusting around the eyes
- Redness, itching or irritation
- Squinting or tearing
- Swelling to the eye or eye area
If your primary veterinarian refers you to MedVet, you can be assured that our ophthalmologists will provide your pet with complete and compassionate veterinary eye care.
MedVet specialists are at the forefront of state-of-the-art ophthalmic care. In fact, MedVet is the only pet hospital in Ohio to offer retinal reattachment surgery and was the first clinic in the world to perform endolaser cyclophotocoagulation therapy for glaucoma in pets.
