Why Is a Pet Eye Infection a Big Deal?

Eye infections are a big deal in pets because they can worsen quickly. When they worsen your pet's vision could be put in danger. Eye infections can sometimes be caused by contagious infections. These infections can be passed from animals to humans. This could put your health and the health of your family at risk as well.

Signs of Eye Infections 

Eye infections are pretty easy to identify. Most of the time an animal eye infection will be obvious because of discharge from the eye. If your pet normally has a small amount of discharge, that is fine. What you want to be looking for is an unusual amount of discharge or discharge that is a different color or has a smell. All of these are signs that there could an infection growing. If your pet's eye seems discolored or cloudy, that could also be a sign of infection.
