Pet Eye Infections

Pet Eye Infections treatment at All Care Animal Hospital

Pet eye infections cause quite a bit of distress for cats and dogs. If your pet is showing signs of an eye infection, it is best to obtain treatment by calling All Care Animal Clinic and get treatment provided by our West Palm Beach veterinarian. Read the following information to learn more about pet eye infection signs and how our veterinarian can help if your pet has one.

Why Eye Infections Happen

If your pet suffers from a scratch in the eye, an infection could easily settle in if you do not obtain treatment for your pet. An eye infection could also be a symptom associated with a cold or allergic reaction. If an eye infection is not looked at by a veterinarian, there is a chance that it will worsen because pets tends to scratch at their eye to try to relieve themselves of pain. The eye infection could also spread from one eye to the other if the discharge is transferred. Any time an eye infection is suspected, seeing our West Palm Beach veterinarian is important so that your pet does not suffer from deteriorating vision to the eye.

The Signs of an Eye Infection

If your pet has an eye infection, it is most likely to squint or blink the eye often. Your pet may also keep the eye shut completely and may show some type discharge coming out of the eye. The discharge may be clear or cloudy and may form a crust around your pet's eye after it dries. Pets with eye infections are more prone to further injuries as they have difficulty getting around due to poor vision. Your pet may move slower than usual or appear wobbly as it walks around. Some pets will whimper, bark, or meow when they have an infection. Avoid bathing your pet with any type of grooming agent until your pet is able to be seen by our West Palm Beach veterinarian.

What Our Veterinarian Will Do To Help

Our veterinarian will check over your pet's overall health to determine the cause of the eye infection. If there is a medical condition that requires treatment, it will be conducted promptly so that your pet can start to heal. In many cases, an eye infection will clear up quickly with aid from eye drops. Our veterinarian will discuss the benefits of using this type of medication and will give you instructions regarding the frequency and dosage recommended to stop the eye infection from spreading or worsening. Your pet may require a follow-up appointment to check on their progress.
