A new useful textbook: BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Ophthalmology, 3rd Edition

15 Feb

The newly revised BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Ophthalmology has just been published. It is a useful and up to date practical guide to common canine and feline ophthalmic conditions.

Natasha Mitchell is one of the contributing authors.

Eye testing

12 Feb

Natasha is an appointed panelist for eye testing under the BVA/KC/ISDS Canine Health Schemes.

The main purpose of the scheme is to ensure that there is no evidence of hereditary eye disease in dogs used for breeding. Litters under the age of 12 weeks can be tested for congenital hereditary ocular diseases. Some breeds may have an additional eye test called gonioscopy, to test for their susceptibility for glaucoma.

Usually drops are applied to the eyes to dilate the pupil, so please arrive 20 minutes early for the appointment to allow for this. It is essential that the dog is microchipped, and that the original Kennel Club registration document and most recent eye tests are produced at the time. Failure to provide the paperwork will result in the test going ahead, but the paperwork will be withheld until the required documentation is forwarded.

Appointments are available in Limerick, and also once monthly in Cork and in Galway, and these appointments should be booked directly with the clinic.
