For eyes you need a specialist. Various people organise testing sessions with a specialist coming to do the testing, but you are out of my area so I dont know who or when. But there is a clinic in England, reasonably close to south Wales.

Rachael Grundon BSc VetMB CertVR MANZCVS (Surgery) FANZCVS (Ophthal) MRCVS
Christine Heinrich DVOphthal DipECVO MRCVS
Rose Linn-Pearl BVsc DipECVO MRCVS
John Mould BA BVSc DVOphthal MRCVS
All test at various times at the surgery below. You will need to phone to find out who is testing when.

Eye Veterinary Clinic,
Marlbrook,
Leominster
Herefordshire
HR6 0PH

Phone number: 01568 616616

As to hips, I'll come back to you on that.

Does anyone in the S.Wales area know of an experienced vet that can do these xrays
I can't remember the name of the place I last used, but I would always travel to an experienced radiographer. I know a lot of people who travel several hours to use Canine Southern Imaging as they have such a good reputation. I'll message someone I know who may be able to remember the place I last used as she also used them and booked the appointment for me, but has a much better memory than me!

They are very good, but down near Southampton rather a long way from South Wales. I used her for my Amy and it was 170 round trip for me. Three of us booked together and all went down in my car.

Marilyn tried to AI Rhuna for me, since she was far too posh to fraternise with the boys, flirting yes, but no further. Marilyn did say she was the most difficult bitch she'd ever attempted to AI, and she didn't take in the end either.

I said Amy, dont know why because she was done by Paulene Tollhurst at Hook Norton. Anna was done by Southern Canine Imaging. At that time Marilyn was doing them without even a sedative. We put on lead aprons and I held Anna's head and she held her legs. These days of course this is not allowed.
