Ophthalmic Medical Care

Regardless of the problem, each horse gets the same level of attention and degree of clinical oversight. This synergy of collaboration has often resulted in innovative treatment options for many horses with severe eye diseases. Referring veterinarians are contacted by phone during the examination, and updated on the case and treatment plan. Discharge instructions are detailed. If a recheck is needed, the appointment is generally made before discharge. We maintain a friendly atmosphere in order to give the clients top-level professional and personal treatment for their horses.
