How to Prepare for Your Pet’s Visit
Prior to arrival at your first visit, please fill out the online Client Information and History Form.
Office hours are 8:30 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. Patients are seen by appointment only. The initial examination is approximately 30 minutes. We make every effort to see each client at their appointment time, but emergencies must take precedence. If you find it necessary to cancel your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible.
Please ask your veterinarian to send a copy of your pet’s records. We will need most recent records on the eyes, lab work and any medications dispensed or prescribed. Please bring any medications that your pet is on to your appointment.
Please no food in the A.M. if surgery is anticipated.
Please bring the name, address, and phone number of your referring veterinarian.
If your pet requires special handling, please contact our office for assistance before coming into the building.
There will be a number of tests that will be performed on patients to check for specific eye problems.
- Tonometry: To measure the pressure in the eye
- Schirmer Tear Test: To measure tear production in the eye
- Fluorescein Stain: To check for ulcers or abrasions on the surface of the eye
- Gonioscopy: To view angles in the eye
