Practice limited to disease and surgery for the animal eye
**Please understand that these protocols may change rapidly to accommodate any change in the health of our staff or to comply with local health recommendations. If your pet has an appointment with us and the status of your visit will change, you will be notified of such changes by phone call or text. If you would like to verify the status of our in office visits, please call before your scheduled exam. Thank you for your understanding.
Animal Eye Clinic is currently accepting in-person examinations. Please read our current safety protocols below.
We are limiting the number of people in the clinic at one time. Please call our office once you have arrived for your appointment. We will then ask you to enter the building or wait in your car until space inside becomes available.
In order to keep distancing possible, we ask that only one person accompany the patient into the clinic. We understand that is not always possible and special accommodations can be made with advanced notice. No restrictions apply to the attendance of children under the age of 12.
We do not require facial converings. Please notify the front desk staff if you would prefer that the doctor and technician wear face coverings while in contact with you. We are happy to accommodate as much as possible to meet your health concerns.
We still offer curbside services. When you arrive for your appointment, please call the office to notify us. We will give you further instruction at that point. Please note: curbside service means that a staff member will come outside to retrieve your pet. We will take the patient inside for the examination while you wait in your car. Dr. Paulsen will call you to discuss the results of the examination as soon as he is finished. We will then obtain payment over the phone and return your pet to you.
We are continuing to consolidate our staff to practice at one location at a time. Until further notice, the Arlington office will be closed on Wednesdays and Fridays while we see patients in Fort Worth. The Fort Worth location will be closed on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays while we see patients in Arlington. We will continue to see patients Monday-Thursday from 8am-5pm and Fridays from 8am-3pm. We are keeping our hours the same, but we are scheduling our appointments farther apart to minimize congestion and promote distancing. This new schedule may decrease the availability of appointments, and your patience is appreciated.
If your pet requires surgery, we will not accept toys, bedding, leashes, pet carriers, any form of food container or personal items from your home.
We currently accept payment in the form of debit and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Care Credit) and cash in some cases. We do not accept checks at this time.
We will continue to monitor the guidelines offered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) to ensure we are limiting exposure to our patients, staff and clientele.

Treating your pet with the expertise they deserve
Animal Eye Clinic has been serving the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex for over twenty five years. We strive to improve our patient's quality of life through changing how they see their world. Animals, like humans, suffer from vision threatening eye diseases that need medical intervention, and we take that need seriously. Animal Eye Clinic focuses on providing ongoing training, and educational opportunities that will build upon our staff's existing knowledge and skills to help better serve our clientele, patients and referring veterinarians.
To better serve you, Animal Eye Clinic performs most labwork in house.
The American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) was established in 1970 and is the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) - sanctioned specialty board which sets the standards for advanced training and board certification in veterinary ophthalmology. Approximately 1/3 of the Diplomates (or members) of ACVO are engaged in private practice and accept cases on a referral basis from general veterinary practitioners. The remaining 2/3's are employed by academic institutions, such as the College of Veterinary Medicine at Texas A&M University where they teach veterinary students, perform research, and conduct clinical specialty practices in sophisticated veterinary teaching hospitals.
The goal of ACVO is to promote the highest level of professional competency in veterinary ophthalmology. To meet this goal, the ACVO establishes certification standards and procedures as well as administers examinations to qualified veterinarians aspiring to become Diplomates (members) of the ACVO.
