What precautions you should take prior to your pet’s cataract surgery.
Pets with cataracts should undergo a thorough evaluation including the following by an animal ophthalmologist prior to scheduling cataract surgery.
2. Ocular Ultrasound
3. Intraocular Pressure Determination
4. Fluorescein eye stain
5. Schirmer Tear Test
6. Complete blood work and urinalysis to rule out hypercholesterolemia, diabetes, no ketones in the urine, no urinary tract infection etc.
7. Full physical exam
Cataract is known to cause Uveitis (swelling and irritation of the middle layer of the eye) and it is prudent to treat the patient with topical non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs for 10-14 days to reduce any inflammation in the eyes prior to the cataract surgery.
I am very impressed with the skills and dedication by my pet’s animal ophthalmologist Dr. Swinger, Animal Eye Guys of Fort Lauderdale, Miami and West Palm Beach and want to give them a shoutout for performing an excellent successful cataract surgical procedure on my pet Mickey. You can reach Dr. Swinger (animal ophthalmologist) and Animal Eye Guys at (954) 990-7743.

Mental Health in Children:
Even before the coronavirus hit, mental health problems such as depression and anxiety were on the rise in children ages 6 to 17, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Research shows social isolation can make these symptoms worse in both children and adults.
