PU - WHAT'S THAT? GOLDEN RETRIEVER PIGMENTARY UVEITIS
Golden Retrievers develop an eye condition that practitioners should know about - Golden Retriever Pigmentary Uveitis (GRPU). This condition has an insidious onset, but early detection can be a key to avoiding glaucoma and vision loss.
Join in this session and learn about risk factors, how to recognize signs of GRPU on an ocular examination, keys to making a clinical diagnosis, treatment options, and breeding advice.
