Pour quoi tu as besoin d’un specialiste?

American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists members work in concert with your primary care veterinarian to provide the best eye care for your animal. There are times when your veterinarian and your animal will benefit from consultation from or referral to a veterinary ophthalmologist. Many eye diseases are time sensitive so prompt consultation or referral is often in your animal’s best interest. The following are situations and questions to consider:

  • My animal’s eye condition has not responded to initial therapy, rather than changing therapy should we get a second opinion from a specialist?
  • My animal’s vision is deteriorating should we seek a consult with an ophthalmologist?
  • The corneal ulcer has not responded to the initial treatment rather than changing antibiotics should we seek referral to an ophthalmologist?
  • I know diabetes generally leads to cataracts.  Prior to cataracts causing complete vision loss should we get a veterinary ophthalmologist to examine my animal?
  • I am interested in breeding my dog, what can I do to ensure the eyes have no inherited ocular disease?
The bond between man and man’s best friend is stronger than ever, according to a survey of pet owners from the American Animal Hospital Association. It’s no surprise – looking at these numbers, at least – that folks now require their pets’ medical attention to be as good as their kids’.
64% expect a pet to come to their rescue if they were in distress
93% would risk their life for their pet
67% travel with their pet
30% say their pet is emotionally sensitive
36% say their pet enjoys watching television
58% visit their vets more than their own doctors
53% spend more on their pets now than three years ago
