Our Services

We take the word Service in Veterinary Ophthalmology Service very seriously. Our philosophy is to treat each of our clients and their pets with first class service. This means you can expect a caring and nurturing staff as well as a state of the art facility that houses the medical equipment needed to do the job right.

How do you know if your pet needs an ophthalmologist?
Your regular veterinarian can identify and treat most routine eye problems. Depending on the nature of the condition, your veterinarian may consult with Dr. Brinkmann or refer you directly to him. Your veterinarian and Dr. Brinkmann will work together to assure that your pet's needs are met. Timely medical attention can lessen the effects of disease and injury on your pet, reduce their discomfort, shorten medical treatment, and save you unnecessary expense.

Signs and symptoms of eye problems:
Loss of sight. Eye discoloration, Behavioral changes, Clouding of the eye, Red or swollen eyes, Growth on or near eye, Light sensitivity/squinting, Excessive tearing or abnormal ocular discharge, Rubbing or pawing at eyes,

For Breeders
Veterinary Ophthalmology Service offers OFA (formerly CERF) examinations. Appointments are required for each patient. As a courtesy, we ask that you arrive ten minutes before your examination time to fill out the OFA form and to allow for dilation. OFA forms are triplicate and must be filled out at your appointment time.

Each examination screens for ocular diseases that are considered inherited, which differ between breeds. Dr. Brinkmann
examines and performs a full ophthalmic examination of both eyes at each exam. Because inherited eye diseases can appear
at anytime during an animal's lifetime, OFA examinations can be done as early as 6 weeks of age and are required annually.
