COVID-19: Ongoing preventative measures 

Before your next visit we invite you to watch this short video presented by Dr. Ollivier explaining the health and safety measures in place at the clinic. As we are a small clinic, these measures are aimed at protecting our clients and our dedicated team by limiting contact and by extension, the risk of contagion during appointments. Despite these temporary measures, we are eager to offer you the best service possible.

Our goal is to make your next visit safe and enjoyable. Thank you for your understanding.

Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our reception.

SURGERY SERVICES

Sometimes, eyes can be treated using only medicine or with minor procedures. However, some more severe ocular diseases can require surgical procedures.

Surgical procedures
with or without hospitalization

  • An eyelid surgery: Entropion, ectropion, medial canthoplasty
    (for brachycephalic breeds) or reconstructive surgery
  • A surgery of the nictitating membrane gland (cherry eye)
  • A corneal reconstructive surgery: corneal graft, conjunctival graft, conjunctivo-corneal transposition, biomaterial graft.
  • Thermokératoplastie ponctiforme
    A ponctiform thermokeratoplasty
    A placement of a therapeutic corneal lens
    A glaucoma surgery
    An anterior lens luxation surgery
    A cataract surgery by phacoemulsification with artificial lens implantation
    An orbital surgery
Ophtalmo Vétérinaire has a fully equipped surgery room with high-tech instrumentation. For example, the surgical microscope is so sophisticated that it allows a very precise visualization of the ocular tissues on which a procedure is needed.

The process

Bloodwork is usually performed prior to any surgical procedure. Constant monitoring is also realized during any anesthesia. Your animal is therefore supervised by our team during the whole procedure (anesthesia, surgery, recovery from anesthesia, and the immediate post-surgery phase).

Most of the surgical procedures do not require that animals stay hospitalized and our clinic is in favor of a “return home as soon as possible” as we believe the recovery would be faster. However, we are fully equipped to keep your animal hospitalized and under close supervision if it is necessary.

We know that as a pet owner, you will be anxious to leave your animal with our team for a surgical procedure. Therefore, we will do all that we can to make your visit as stress-free and worry-free as possible. You will be regularly informed of the various steps your animal goes through throughout the day, while they are in our care.

A free and intuitive application on your mobile device will allow you to receive photos and updates, and communicate with our staff throughout the day.

CONVALESCENCE

Before we discharge your animal, our team will provide you with all the recommendations and information needed. In many instances, a plastic cone (Elizabethan collar), rest, the application of drops, and the administration of medicine will be necessary. A large part of the success of a surgical procedure will depend on the post-operative care that you give your animal at home. We might need to follow-up with your animal a few days after the surgical procedure to ensure that the healing process is progressing normally. A follow-up appointment would therefore be proposed to you.

Do not hesitate to contact us is you have any concerns or questions regarding the recovery of your animal following a surgical procedure or simply to give us some news.
