I went to an eye specialist with my German Shepherd. My Vet had faxed the eye specialist everything that was important for her to know before hand. The experience for my dog sucked since she was painfully shy and didnâ€™t like strangers to look at her, let alone touch her.
The experience is probably much different for a cat then dog, size wise. It was so long ago I barely remember. I do remember it was way too expensive LOL. Also, they brought me into a small room with no windows, looked into her eye with about three difference types of hand held machines. Got her up on a mechanical table that went up and down. Put some drops in her eyes, shut the lights so it was pitch black and shone lights into her eyes. It was all quick and easy. I had to go back every two weeks for about 2 months to see if her eyes drops were working. They worked and we were good to go.
I do remember the eye specialist taking the time to talk to me in great detail about her eye, what was wrong, showed me diagrams and everything. She even wrote me very specific instructions on things I should not do IE: no head out the window in a car, donâ€™t walk her towards wind, so heavy rubbing on her eyes.
Overall it was a positive experience for me, I learned a lot, for Silverâ€¦ she hated every second of it, but I cant really blame her, they didnâ€™t hurt her at all, but it was new and different for her.
