Even the smallest eye injury (a tiny scratch, for example) can develop into an infected wound and loss of vision. Never gamble with your dog’s eyesight — always seek immediate treatment, even for minor eye injuries.
If you see your dog squinting, avoiding bright lights, and excessively blinking, examine her eyes. Tear production is also a frequent sign of problems, as is watery, green, or yellow discharge. At worst, the eye may even be out of its socket.
If your pet shows any of these eye injury signs, it is imperative that you seek immediate help from a veterinarian. Our emergency clinic is open after hours and on weekends in case your pet emergency happens when vet offices are closed.
