OUR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES:
Patients come to Shield Stone Pet Hospital Eye Clinic from around the Central Valley. While many are referred to us by their primary care veterinarian, our services are also available to patients whom their owner finds us on their own. Although referral by your veterinarian is not mandatory, we do request their contact information so that we may keep your veterinarian informed of our findings and of the progress of your pet’s eye problems. Patients referred from their primary care veterinarian, remember your regular veterinarian will administer your pet’s primary health care.
We offer the latest diagnostic and treatment techniques using state-of-the-art-instrumentation. We will provide a diagnosis, describe the ocular condition in clear and understandable terms, and discuss the necessary recommended medication(s) and treatment. We make every effort to see each client at their appointment time, but emergencies must take precedence. Please be sure to bring your pets information from your referring veterinarian regarding your pet’s medical history (i.e. current medications & up-to-date blood work). This information is beneficial in the diagnosis and management of your pets ocular needs.
