Ophthalmology Treatment

Ophthalmology treatment involves diagnosing and treating diseases and disorders of the eye, including the structures surrounding the eye. At our animal hospital, during every patient’s standard wellness exam, we evaluate the eyes to determine if there are any abnormalities. If abnormalities are found, we arrange for further evaluation and diagnostic testing to determine the best treatment for each pet. We have an in-clinic laboratory equipped with the technology to perform a number of diagnostic tests, and we also have access to outside laboratories and specialists, if necessary.

Many eye conditions seen in pets are similar to those seen in humans. A few of the most common eye conditions we diagnose or treat include:

  • Glaucoma
  • Cataracts
  • Cherry eye
  • Dry eye
  • Corneal ulcer

Cat and Dog Microchipping

Cat and dog microchipping is currently one of the few permanent forms of pet identification. We still recommend ID tags on collars, but having a microchip is a great way to increase the chances that your dog or cat will be returned to you, should he/she ever become separated from you. A microchip is a tiny device—about the size of a grain of rice—that is safely placed just under the surface of your pet’s skin.

Each microchip that we place here at La Crosse Veterinary Clinic contains a unique code with the owner’s information. The chip can be scanned by a handheld reader at most animal shelters and hospitals around the world, so if a microchipped dog or cat is lost and turned in to a shelter or veterinary clinic, the microchip can be scanned, and the pet can be reunited with his/her owner. Our microchips are compliant with the ISO (International Standards Organization), which means they’re approved for international travel.

If you would like to schedule an appointment to have your cat or dog microchipped or would like more information about our services, please call us at (608) 781-3466.
