Some recognizable symptoms of an eye problem include:

  • Watery eyes
  • Discharge
  • Excessive blinking or squinting
  • Redness and inflammation
  • Pawing or rubbing the eyes or face
  • Swelling or lumps around the eyes

There are many conditions that may cause the eye to simply appear irritated, such as infections and eyelash or eyelid problems.

Okay' stick your tongue out! ~ By Dr. Kenzo Tochiki
Okay' stick your tongue out!
As humans, when we are sick, we have the ability to go to the doctor, to explain what’s wrong and to receive the appropriate treatment for our eyes.

When our animals become ill, or have suffered an injury, however, it’s much more challenging to figure out what’s wrong with your pets eyes.

Because pets can’t speak, they can’t tell us what’s bothering them, where it hurts or what their symptoms are.
Our in-house Diagnostics and Laboratory Services allows our doctors to get the results they need, exactly when those results are needed.

In many cases, we can have answers for you before you and your pet even leave our Florence office.
Diagnostic Testing at Florence Animal Hospital
Blood work screening is important.
Diagnostic Screening & Testing
Every pet needs regular checks to be sure their health is as good as it can be.

Early detection of disease, many pets don’t exhibit signs or show symptoms.

Visit our Pet Diagnostic page.
Diagnostic Screening, X-rays & Testing
Digital X-Rays
With digital X-rays, we can produce images of your pet's bones and internal organs. Learn More
Parasites & Diseases
Heartworm Disease Testing
Dogs (and cats) of any age or breed are susceptible to heartworm infection.

If left untreated, heart worms can cause serious heart and lung disease that can lead to your pets death.

HOW DO THEY GET THIS DISEASE? 
Most puppies can get roundworms from their mothers. Adult dogs, on the other hand, can become infected by ingesting infected soil or fecal matter (e.g. while grooming) or by eating infected animals such as rodents.

Hookworms are also transmitted by ingesting infected soil or fecal matter, but they can also burrow through your pet's paw pads.

Roundworms and hookworms may be transmitted to people, therefore, it is important to clean up after your pet and use good hygiene practices.

Whipworm eggs can survive in the environment for years and most commonly infect your pet through ingestion.

Tapeworms are the least harmful but are usually the most obvious. They are transmitted by ingesting an infected flea (e.g. while grooming) or an infected rodent. Your pet cannot get tapeworms by eating a tapeworm.
