One of the requirements of ethical breeding is to have the dogs’ eyes examined annually by a certified veterinary ophthalmologist. I have been consulting for many years with Dr. Cheryl Cullen of Cullen-Webb Animal Eye Specialists in New Brunswick. Dr. Cullen travels to Halifax, Nova Scotia on a regular basis, saving the dogs and their people hours of travel. On April 6, we met Dr. Cullen at Fairview Animal Hospital where she performed the CERF (Canine Eye Registration Foundation) exam on our seven dogs. The dogs’ eyes have an unusual appearance as they are temporarily dilated with drops.
