Woodside offers extensive services to maintain and treat problems that may arise with your horse’s vision.
Ocular disorders are a very common problem in horses. What may look like a slightly swollen eye one day, can quickly turn into a disaster the next.For simple conditions, such as superficial corneal ulcers, we can thoroughly examine the eye on an outpatient basis or at the farm. More serious conditions, such as deep ulcers or uveitis, may require hospitalization here at Woodside for round the clock treatments, or placement of a subpalpebral lavage system for more aggressive therapies.
We also have the added benefit of working with Dr. Michael J. Blair, DVM, MS, RPh, DACVO and Dr. Ann P. Bosiack, DVM, MS, DACVO of Animal Eye Care of Richmond. They are board certified specialists in veterinary ophthalmology. Ophthalmology specialists provide expertise and special equipment needed to diagnose and treat animal eye disease. They serve as an extension of our practice and a method of providing a level of ocular health care not available in general practice.
If you are interested in contacting the Animal Eye Care of Richmond to resolve your horse’s eye issues, please call their office directly at (804) 355-5594. They will work with you in scheduling an appointment to meet one of their doctors here at Woodside Equine Clinic. You can look through their website here: Animal Eye Care of Richmond
