keeping our sights trained on the health of your pet’s eyes
Your animal’s eyesight is a vital part of their overall health and welfare, which is why we provide an advanced surgical and medical service for their eyes.
These services benefit from the experience of Ophthalmology expert
Dr Audrey Chanoit MVDr CES (Ophthalmology), whose broad range
of qualifications in Ophthalmology and Microsurgery will provide you
with as full a service as possible from our Clevedon surgery.
Does your pet have weepy eyes?
Do their eyes ever look red or have a sticky discharge?
Do they have any cloudiness in their eyes?
These can all be signs of pain and a potentially serious underlying problem.
Did you know that some breeds such as Pugs, Shih Tzus or Persian cats can suffer from various eye problems related to having a short nose?
Audrey provides a second-opinion, middle-tier ophthalmology service with the following features:
Each of these surgical procedures could mean the world of difference for your pet’s welfare and can help them to keep their eyesight for life.
If you have any concerns about your dog’s or cat’s eye health call us to arrange a no obligations assessment
by one of the areas leading eye vets.
Please note: Cases requiring intra-ocular surgery (within the eye ball) will be referred to a local specialist ophthalmologist.
Here is what one of our many satisfied clients has to say
“Alexandra and Hillyfields Veterinary practice have looked after my dogs for at least 8 years. It is a practice that combines great professional expertise with warmth and compassion. You’re pet is not just another number but is treated with enormous kindness and affection and their dignity is respected at all times.
My Shih Tzu, Bertie, in common with similar breeds, has experienced severe eye problems. They have been transformed thanks to the exceptional skill of Audrey, the canine eye expert who works at the surgery one day per week. Thanks to her, his eyes have never been healthier. The veterinary nurses care for pets who are recovering from surgery, with great gentleness and they provide brilliant advice and support when you collect your pet or return for check ups. They are flexible and accommodating if you need to rearrange appointments at the last minute. I am very grateful to them all.”

The story of Doug the Pug
In February 2014 my pug Doug had an eye ulcer that went very badly wrong.
Fortunately at our veterinary practise on that day was a visiting Ophthalmologist Audrey Chanoit and had it not been for her excellent experience and fast response Doug would without doubt have lost his sight or maybe the eye.
Following extensive surgery Audrey continued to care, monitor and maintain Doug’s eyes and then she informed me that she was no longer able to visit the practise which Doug attended and initially I was devastated until she informed me that she would be working with Alexandra Vets at Clevedon so we decided to travel and move with Audrey to continue the excellent care and maintenance of Doug’s eyes.
Well every cloud has a silver lining – what a wonderful friendly practise throughout. From the moment I walked through the door I felt at ease. Every member of staff are welcoming, professional with lots of time to give both the pet and the owner – cannot be faulted.
Audrey and co. have run an awareness evening relating to the eye problems encountered by pugs, shih Tzu, boxers and spaniels which was most informative and had I been aware of these problems earlier evasive action could have prevented the problem with Doug.
I would recommend any owner of a pug to take their dog to Audrey to be checked. Not only is she excellent and proficient with the animal she has a lovely way with the owner and nothing is too much trouble, never rushed and explained fully.
Owing to Audrey’s diligence my pug still has sight in the damaged eye and the other eye is in perfect condition.
Audrey is a true asset to this wonderful practise.
