For Doctors Who Care For Pets, It’s Also a Trying Time

This article really hits home for our AVO family. It is so tough not to be able to meet clients face to face, to try to explain complicated disease processes over the phone or to examine my patients with a mask on while the slit lamp fogs up. I know that these are tough times; looking forward to getting back to normal hopefully sometime soon.

The coronavirus pandemic is eroding the ability of veterinarians to care for pets and the owners who love them; ‘Just like with the human hospitals, there’s going to be a breaking point’

Lucy is a sweet kitten who, two weeks ago was blind with changes to both eyes consistent with Feline Infectious Peritonitis, or FIP. FIP is a terrible disease with a horrible long term prognosis. She started on a new therapy orally two weeks ago. Last night, she is chasing laser pointers again! Her response has been amazing! I am so hopeful that this will cure little Lucy! #armoureyevet Armour Veterinary Ophthalmology Friendship Hospital for Animals

This sweet pup came to visit us last week. He gave us the hairy eyeball, literally! A dermoid is normal tissue in an unusual location. Thankfully in his case, the hairs are short and not painful. Often, dermoids are surgically removed to get pups out of a hairy situation. ☺️ #armoureyevet

Does your dog have a pesky eyelid mass? At Armour Veterinary Ophthalmology we are equipped with a CO2 laser that we can use to remove these masses and minimize the chance of regrowth with a quick and easy sedated procedure, no general anesthesia needed. Here is the before and after of a 12 year old yellow lab named Ribbon, her removal site healed up nicely and she is much more comfortable!

Meet Cosmo! Cosmo is a gorgeous Himalayan diagnosed with lagophthalmos, a condition where he cannot fully close his eyelids, which can cause some slight irritation in his eyes. The owner diligently administers his eye lubricant so he remains happy and comfortable. Cosmo loves hiding in his mom’s purse, even though he has his own carrier!

Meet Judy the Shih Tzu! Judy came to us for her annual eye exam to check on her progress. Judy has mild trichiasis, a common eyelid abnormality in which the eyelashes are misdirected and grow inwards toward the eye. These hairs can be irritating to the cornea and potentially cause ulcers. We perform a freezing procedure called cryoepilation to get rid of these periocular hairs.

Meet Rory! A 5 year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel diagnosed with Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca (KCS) also known as dry eye. KCS is a condition due to a lack of normal aqueous tear production, and is diagnosed with a Schirmer tear test. When we first saw Rory her tear production was 0! Now after a few weeks of immunomodulatory medications she is making progress on her tear film. We love her!
