Minor to severe eye care for pets

At Bridle Trail Veterinary Clinic, we are here to offer you care for your pets’ eyes. Our veterinarians perform comprehensive eye exams and can test for multiple commonly treated diseases of the eye, including (but not limited to) cataracts, glaucoma, corneal ulcers, and ocular inflammation.


Detecting and treating glaucoma and other issues related to intraocular pressure (pressure within the eye) is crucial for your pet's vision. At our clinic, we offer eye pressure testing for dogs and cats using a device called a tonometer. This test is non-invasive, painless, and does not require sedation.

Glaucoma can lead to permanent vision loss or blindness if not treated promptly, usually within hours to days. Therefore, pets with eye injuries should undergo this test as soon as possible. Additionally, we recommend regular eye pressure measurements for breeds predisposed to glaucoma. This allows us to monitor their eye health closely and initiate treatment before any irreversible damage occurs.

Symptoms of glaucoma to look for include:

  • Redness in the eye
  • Tearing or discharge
  • Eye sensitivity to light
  • Pain
  • Cloudy-looking eye
  • Bulging eyeball

If you're unsure whether your pet may be at higher risk for glaucoma, please don't hesitate to give us a call. We're here to discuss your pet's unique needs and provide the necessary care to safeguard their vision.

Call us at (905) 477-1190 if you think your pet needs an eye exam.
