Pets can develop a wide range of medical and surgical ocular conditions. VES Hospital is fully equipped to diagnose and treat veterinary eye diseases and infections. In addition, the presence of on-site specialists and certified vets in Diagnostic Imaging, Surgery, Internal Medicine and Critical Care, provides a collaborative, comprehensive approach to most conditions involving the eye.

Our hospital is staffed 24/7 and patients that need to be admitted with ophthalmologic conditions will be monitored at all times and receive treatments around the clock.

If you would like to refer a case or discuss about a patient, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email or by using our referral section.
