Dr. Wendy Townsend, MS, DVM, DAVOM of Purdue University and a primary researcher into PU will be performing ultrasounds of Golden Retriever eyes. This non-invasive procedure is free of charge, is not painful or uncomfortable and has the potential to provide critical information for continuing research into this disease.
Dr Townsend will examine any Golden Retrievers, healthy eyes or otherwise, 6 years and older. Goldens without pedigrees or those from a rescue situation are more than welcome to become a part of this research project. Dependent on the interest in this year’s clinic, the age requirement is subject to change.
Dr Townsend is strongly encouraging Golden Retrievers 12 years and older and those previously seen at PU clinics to participate in this year’s clinic. The clinic is limited to 125 dogs. Appointments will be arranged once judging schedules are announced. Downloadable forms need to be returned to to complete preregistration process. These forms will be available on the National website.
Pre-registration for the clinic is through the GRCA store
