Why Eye Infections Occur

There are a few different reasons why a dog or cat would contract an eye infection. If your pet is feeling under the weather, an infection of the eyes could be a symptom related to a virus. Make sure to note any other symptoms your pet is dealing with so you can let our vet know during an appointment for an evaluation of the eyes. A scratch on the cornea of an eye could lead to an infection if it is not treated properly. For this reason, any time your pet seems injured in one of its eyes, make an appointment for a checkup.

The Symptoms Of Pet Eye Infections

A pet suffering from an eye infection is likely to have telltale signs of their condition. An infected eye may ooze a discharge. This could be a liquid or gummy substance that requires cleaning around the eye to remove it from your pet's fur. Some pets will have eyes that appear cloudy or hazed when an eye infection is present. A pet may blink their eyes or keep an infected eye closed to avoid further discomfort of the area. You may notice that your pet tries to scratch at an infected eye in an attempt to stop pain or discomfort from occurring. This could injure your pet's eye further.

What Our Veterinarian Can Do To Help

If your pet has an infection, treatment from our veterinarian is the best way to reduce pain and discomfort quickly. Our veterinarian will ask you questions about your pet's medical health and any symptoms they have recently been displaying. They will then conduct a detailed assessment of your pet's eyes to look for scratches or signs of illness. Your pet will most likely be prescribed with medication to clear the infection right away. It is important to keep your pet's eyes free of debris and to clean them according to our vet's instructions so a complete recovery is obtained.

  • "AWESOME, Dr. Spencer Ratnoff is the best he treated my cat for a fractured top k9 tooth, when He finished with him, he looked like he was born without a k9 tooth. He did that surgery so well it’s refreshing a Dr that actually cares, his team is wonderful and very attentive, I left a message and not even 10 minutes later, I got a call back. My family is forever grateful .thank you for everything."

  • "I initially had a bad experience due to the Doctor that was in on that day. I returned for a checkup for my girl 'Cali' 'Cat' and the energy Dr. Ratnoff had was much better with my girl as she can be very temperamental. I was very pleased during this visit as Dr. Ratnoff had more patience and better vibe as our pets sense negative energy. Its a shame my first experience was not pleasant but I will be back and only ensure Dr. Ratnoff with my girl. Thankyou Doc!"
