AKC Canine Health Foundation Releases Podcast About the Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF) With Dr. David Whitley [Thursday, August 12, 2010]
The AKC Canine Health Foundation is pleased to release the next podcast in the Genome Barks series. This week on Genome Barks, we welcome Dr. David Whitley, a board certified ophthalmologist at Iowa State University. Dr. Whitley has focused his research efforts on corneal diseases of the dog, and Mucopolysaccharidosis Type I (MPS I). In this podcast, we discuss the Canine Eye Registration Foundation (CERF), what the exam entails, why participating in the CERF registry is important for breeders and owners, and what some of the most common eye diseases are in the dog.
The Genome Barks podcast series features lectures from the highly successful AKC and CHF Breeders Symposia and provides responsible breeders and pet owners an inside look at the work being done by the Canine Health Foundation.
