Intra Occular Eye Pressure Testing (Glaucoma) for Pets
One of the many services that we offer to pets on site is a gentle technique to determine pressure within the eye. This is critical when trying to assess the early stages of GLAUCOMA, a condition that can cause pain and blindness. Certain breeds of dogs are more prone to this. Early detection of any significant increase in eye pressure is essential to a positive outcome when treated.
We offer preventive, bi-annually testing for selective breeds that are pre-disposed to the disease. Breeds that are predisposed include; Cocker Spaniels, Chow Chow, Welsh springer spaniel, Bassett hound, Great Dane, Samoyed, Bouvier, Beagle, Norwegian Elkhound, and Flat-coated Retrievers.
The image of the eye represents a classic appearance of glaucoma in a dog.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit and debit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. OPERATING HOURS
We are OPEN with the following hours:
- Monday to Friday: 10:00 am - 6:00 pm - Saturday: 8:00 am - 1:00 pm - Sunday: CLOSED
