Limited Diagnostic Testing
Advanced Diagnostic Imaging
Although we expect to gain the majority of information from your dog in a single visit, we may want to do additional tests if your dog has a glaucomatous attack. We anticipate a maximum of 4 visits over a 2-year period for your dog. You will be responsible for filling out a questionnaire and survey regarding your dog’s history, monitoring the well-being of your dog at home and report any changes or side effects to us, and withhold food from your dog the morning prior to the appointment so that your dog can be sedated for advanced ocular examination. You will also be responsible for covering any costs (beyond $200) related to complications, diagnostic testing, gonioscopy, sedation or blood sampling.
We are looking for healthy American cocker spaniels that are at least 10 years old with normal eyes and American cocker spaniels diagnosed with primary glaucoma.
