Pet Eye Health Awareness Week returns in September – VetNurse News – Vet Nurse

TVM had announced that its annual Pet Eye Health Awareness Week will take place from 22nd-28th September this year, focusing on brachycephalic pets which are particularly prone to eye problems.

To help practices make the most of the week, TVM is providing waiting room displays, client leaflets, social media packs and online information to help educate pet owners on the symptoms of poor eye health.

The company will also be holding a webinar for vets and nurses which will be published during the week.

Will Peel, Product Manager at TVM said: “Eye problems in pets are common and brachycephalic breeds are particularly prone to them due to a number of compounding factors.

“They commonly suffer from corneal ulcers and are nearly four times more likely to develop dry eye than other breeds, so Pet Eye Health Awareness Week is focused on helping pet owners understand the issues, identify eye problems early and seek veterinary advice quickly”.
