Beverly Hills Veterinarians
Diagnose & Treat Pet Eye Diseases

Veterinary Ophthalmology

At Beverly Hills Veterinary Associates, we work closely with pet owners to identify the source of eye symptoms and to develop a treatment plan that meets the needs of the pet and their owner. We are experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions interfering with your pet’s vision and the long-term health of the eyes. 

Indications of Eye Disease in Pets

There are a variety of symptoms that are indicative of a possible eye condition or disease in your pet, some subtler than others. Obvious symptoms of an eye problem include watery eyes, excessive blinking, squinting, redness, puffiness, and pawing at the eyes or face. Subtle indicators of pet eye disease include weight loss and dehydration, causing the eyes to appear sunken. Tetanus is a serious disease that also causes sunken eyes. Conversely, tumors, abscesses, or even glaucoma may cause bulging in or around the eye. Infections, foreign objects in the eye, or other problems tend to cause general irritation and redness. All of these problems warrant a prompt call to your Beverly Hills veterinarian.

Eye Symptoms: A Call to Action

Pets demonstrating pain in or around the eyes should be brought to the veterinarian immediately. Eye pain symptoms include tenderness, whining, sensitivity to light, excessive tears, loss of appetite, and rubbing or pawing at the face. A noticeable decrease in vision or suspected blindness is a serious problem as well.

Your pet’s vision is so important that we recommend calling us at the first sign of concern. While not every symptom will result in a serious diagnosis, acting promptly might very well save your companion’s vision.
