At Brisbane Pet Surgery, our veterinarians are experienced in eye surgery, and will do everything in our power to help your furry friend see clearly again.
If a deep erosion of the third layer of the eyelid has occurred, it can be cloudy and painful. This may be caused by a number of factors – bring your pet in to see us.
If your pet has a prolapsed gland, this will obstruct the normal movement of the third eyelid across the eye – leading to irritations and secondary infections.
This refers to the upper or lower eyelids rolling inward toward the eye. Entropion results in the eyelashes rubbing and scratching the cornea.
Often present in older dogs, Meibomian Gland Tumours will continue to grow until they are removed.
Q. My pet looks like they are crying – what does this mean?
This is an indication that their eye is irritated. This can be caused by a number of factors, such as a scratched cornea or eyelashes rubbing against the eye. It should be taken seriously, as it can often lead to secondary infections.
Q. Will eye surgery effect the appearance of my pet’s face?
No! Our experienced team takes care to make all incisions and sutures as close to the eye as possible, meaning you won’t notice any difference at all. We have also found that shaving the eye area isn’t necessary, meaning you won’t have to spend any time waiting for the hair to grow back.
Q. Does my pet have to stay overnight?
Your pet is usually able to return home with you on the day of the surgery, though this will depend on the extent of the treatment. You’ll be happy to learn that we don’t charge any extra for overnight stays.
