Canine Eye Testing At CLA Game Fair

08 July 2014    10:00
 

Owners of Kennel Club registered dogs will be able to get their pet's eyes examined again this year at the CLA Game Fair at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, 18-20 July.

The canine eye tests are being offered as part of the British Veterinary Association/Kennel Club/International Sheepdog Society (BVA/KC/ISDS) Eye Test Scheme, and will take place at the Kennel Club stand on all three days of the show and will work on an appointment basis. 

The testing is available for any breed and Kennel Club registration certificates must be presented at the time of testing.

Caroline Kisko, Kennel Club Secretary, said: "We are thrilled to be able to offer canine eye testing at the CLA Game Fair again this year and as the show is one of the highlights in the calendar for many dog lovers, the eye testing always proves very popular.

"We are very lucky to have Professor Peter Bedford, one of the UK's top veterinary ophthalmologists carrying out the eye tests again, and this is a great opportunity for dog owners who may be attending the Game Fair to have their much loved pets' eyes tested.

Those wishing to book should email susan.sampson@thekennelclub.org.uk at the earliest opportunity or visit Susan herself at the Kennel Club stand at the CLA Game Fair. 

Tests are priced at the BVA/KC/ISDS basic rate of £30 per dog for the standard eye examination and £38 for Glaucoma testing.
