Compassionate Eye Care for Zimmerman & Elk River Area Pets

Veterinary Eye Care With The Staff at ZimmVet

Eye health care in companion animals is often overlooked until a problem arises. Animals suffer from many of the same eye problems that affect humans: cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye, corneal ulceration, tumors of the eye, inflammation of the eye and surrounding tissues, retinal degeneration, and many others. Certain breeds of dogs and cats are also more prone to eye-related diseases.

At ZimmVet, routine eye exams are a vital part of our commitment to maintaining your pet’s overall health. Eye problems, if left untreated, can be painful and result in serious long-term effects, including blindness. When performed regularly, eye exams help with prevention and early detection of ocular diseases.

In addition to routine eye exams, our experienced veterinarians offer specialized testing for scratches, fungal or bacterial infections, low tear production, and glaucoma.

Symptoms of Eye Problems in Pets

Since animals do not communicate discomfort the same way that humans do, it is important to know what the signs are that indicate your pet might be experiencing eye problems. Eye conditions can become serious very quickly, so it is urgent that your pet be examined soon after symptoms are noticed. Contact us right away if your pet demonstrates pain in or near the eyes.

Some other symptoms that your pet might be experiencing eye problems are:

  • Watery eyes
  • Excessive blinking or tearing
  • Squinting
  • Redness
  • Puffiness
  • Pawing at the eyes or face
  • Discharge
  • Sensitivity to light

Last Saturday was our first time there and our experience was a 5! Everyone was very informative and welcoming! Thank you!

— Carole Lefebvre

Bringing both of our dogs to be cared for, we are extremely pleased with the care they are receiving. Sadie, Willow and I thank you all.

— Sue Lenz

I really appreciated the way the doctors at the clinic cared for Diamond. Over fifteen years of love with my wonderful dog and the quality of regular care she received at the clinic made it possible. I was especially touched by the sympathy card I receive after sadly having to put her to sleep, it shows they really care.

The staff at Zimmerman Veterinary Clinic has taken care of my dogs since 1979. I am especially pleased with the care of my last companion/friend, Ruby Mae. She received the best care I could have expected. The staff gave her loving care and attention during her whole lifetime. I canít thank them enough for being there for support. I will continue to use them with my new friend, Baily Sue.

— Sincerely, Dale Cannon
