What Are Pet Eye Infections?

Pet eye infections are infections caused by a wide range of outside factors. These can include issues such as viruses, fungal infections, and bacterial infections. All of these can severely impact your pet's comfort levels and lead to symptoms such as:

  • Watery eyes
  • Itchy eyes
  • Swollen eyes
  • Inability to open the eyes
  • Changes in vision
  • Pus, discharge, or drainage coming from the eye

If your pet has suffered a previous injury such as a corneal abrasion or debris stuck in their eye, this puts them at increased risk of pet eye infections. Your pet might also suffer from eye infections due to parasites in their eyes, such as a worm causing thelaziosis. Whatever is the cause of your pet's eye infections, it's imperative to get them the help they need right away to prevent complications.

How Can a Veterinarian Help?

Our veterinarian will conduct an eye exam to determine the exact cause of your pet's symptoms. We will conduct an eye exam that looks at the structure of the eye, and the surrounding tissues, and uses light to assess how damaged the eye is and what are the best treatment options. Our veterinarian might also recommend treatments such as medications, antibiotics, or eye drops. Our veterinarian will also determine if your pet's symptoms are due to an eye infection or another medical issue such as glaucoma or eye cataracts. Afterward, your veterinarian will conduct follow-up care so they can ensure your pet is healing properly from their pet eye infections.
