Should My Pet See a Vet Right Away for an Eye Problem?

Eye conditions may vary, but they can also escalate quickly. You should contact your vet as soon as possible if you suspect your pet has an eye injury or disease. Redness, swelling, closing of the eye, and a runny eye could all point to an issue that needs professional treatment.
