8-11-12: The Doggie Eye Doctor
Our expert guest on the August 11th show was Dr. Neal Wasserman. Dr. Wasserman completed his residency in veterinary ophthalmology and currently works at Eye Care for Animals. During the show, Dr. Wasserman discussed the advances in his specialty and gave us some great information about several common eye-related diseases, such as feline herpes virus, cherry eye, and cataracts. Cataract removal surgery is a therapeutic option for people whose pets have this common condition. Dr. Wasserman detailed preliminary testing to determine if your pet is a candidate for the surgery and prognosis to restore your pet’s vision.
