Red Eye in Dogs and Cats: What Does It Mean?

Since your pet’s eyes are front and center every time you look at them, abnormalities such as red eyes are easy to notice. There are a number of reasons your pet’s eyes may be red. Some are relatively harmless while others are much more serious. Join us on Thursday, October 14th at 6:30PM ET as Dr. Alexandra van der Woerdt, Staff Doctor and Head of Ophthalmology at the Animal Medical Center, discusses the various conditions that can lead to red eyes in dogs and cats and how it is properly treated.

This is a free, online-only event hosted via Zoom. A link to the meeting with instructions will be emailed to all registered participants the day of the event. Please email UsdanInstitute@amcny.org with any questions.
