Primary care and emergency veterinarians play a critical role in the first-line assessment and management of urgent and acute eye problems in dogs and cats. In some cases, the initial approach and determination of a sound plan can be the difference between preservation of vision or progression to blindness. This 3-day seminar will outline and discuss the essential skills and knowledge veterinarians need to provide immediate, effective care for ophthalmic emergencies in dogs and cats. Emphasis will be placed on how to recognize the problems and findings that require urgent attention, how perform a sound ocular assessment in urgent situations, current standards of care and best practices for treatment of urgent eye problems, important differences in approaches and management between dogs and cats, and how to manage situations when immediate referral is not available and to provide the best spectrum of care.
