Pet Health Services in Middletown

The veterinary team at Main Street Veterinary Hospital is here to make caring for your pet as positive and stress-free as possible. Beyond our comprehensive wellness services, Dr. Heller can also address and treat a range of conditions that can impact your pet's health.

Pet VaccinesGlaucoma Detection

Glaucoma is a common condition in which the fluid pressure inside the eye increases, resulting in damage to the optic nerve, followed by loss of vision and blindness. There are two types of glaucoma. Primary or chronic glaucoma is hereditary or develops as your pet ages. Secondary or acute glaucoma develops as the result of an injury or illness. Because both types of glaucoma can progress very rapidly, they are considered an emergency situation. 

Symptoms of glaucoma include:

  • Redness in the eye
  • Tearing or discharge
  • Eye sensitivity to light
  • Pain
  • Cloudy-looking eye
  • Bulging eyeball

For your pet's comfort and safety, we use a handheld tonometer to measure the fluid pressure inside his or her eyes. This is a non-invasive, simple procedure that usually can be done with you and your pet in the exam room. 

Prescription Diets

Some pets have health conditions that would benefit from a special prescription diet. For instance, changing to a prescription diet is often the most effective way to treat kidney disease in dogs and cats; pets with liver disease, food allergies, bladder stones, and diabetes will often benefit from diet changes as well. Here at Main Street Veterinary Clinic we carry Science Diet, Royal Canine, and Purina prescription diets and we would be happy to discuss, if warranted, which one would meet your pet's needs.
