Gonioscopy Eye Testing Session

Date: 27th March 2020

Time: tba

Location: Jubilee Pavilion, Recreation Way, Mildenhall, Suffolk, IP28 7HG

UNFORTUNATELY, DUE TO THE ONGOING CONORAVIRUS SITUATION, WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO CANCEL THIS SESSION.

In support of the Golden Oldies Project (a study of changes in the pectinate ligament in older dogs to try and determine if these changes lead to glaucoma) ECGRC will be holding a gonioscopy only eye testing session.

For this study to have any value as many dogs as possible need to be examined.  Golden Retrievers aged 8 or more will be examined free of charge by Prof Peter Bedford.  Please bring your KC registration certificate with you.  Pedigree but unregistered goldens can also participate.  Please supply a copy of the pedigree. ALL dogs must be microchipped.

Prof Bedford can examine up to 50 dogs in a day.  As we do not anticipate having that many older dogs present, there will be some availability to test younger dogs for the normal fee of £60.  ECGRC will subsidise this by £10 for the first 25 members’ dogs examined.  Gonioscopy is now on Schedule A for golden retrievers so must be carried out every 3 years for all breeding animals.

Appointments can be made ONLY by email, with Gonioscopy in the subject line, to altindangoldens@gmail.com
