Josey (Glory and Thunder 2015 pup) went to the UW Veterinary School in Madison, WI on Monday September 18, 2017 to have her second year CERF exam done on her eyes. This was a worrisome day for me as a breeder because if you have been following along you know that Preacher who is Josey’s sister came down with cataracts when she was CERF’ed at 8 months of age. If you didn’t see the post you can read about it here. After we found out about Preacher we took Josey for her first CERF exam in which she passed, she had no signs of cataracts. So the wait began to see if any would develop as she got older as juvenile cataracts can appear between 6-18 months of age.
Josey got a clean bill of heath on her CERF exam, a weight has been lifted off of my shoulders as she should be out of the woods for developing juvenile cataracts as she is nearing 27 months of age. This was the best news I got. Tom had a great experience at the UW Veterinary School. Josey needed sun glasses when she left the building not only because the sun was shining bright but because Tom was as well.
