We conduct enucleation procedures for pets requiring the removal of an eye due to various medical conditions or injuries. Enucleation is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia to remove the entire eyeball while leaving the surrounding tissues intact. Before proceeding with enucleation, our veterinary team conducts a thorough examination of your pet's eye and overall health to determine if surgery is necessary. Common reasons for enucleation include severe trauma, untreatable eye infections, irreparable glaucoma, or ocular tumors. During the enucleation procedure, the surgeon carefully removes the eyeball and seals the remaining tissue to promote healing and prevent complications. After surgery, our compassionate staff provides post-operative care, including pain management and monitoring for any signs of complications. We also offer guidance on post-operative care at home to ensure your pet's comfort and recovery. At Snowden Animal Hospital, we understand that the decision to proceed with enucleation can be difficult for pet owners, and we strive to provide support and compassionate care every step of the way. Our priority is to improve your pet's quality of life while ensuring their comfort and well-being.
