Erika Werne, Director of Canine Education, Communications, and Club Relations for the AKC Canine Health Foundation, welcomes Dr. Sarah Stone of the Ohio State University to this edition of Genome Barks. One of the most common health issues facing both humans and their canine companions is cataracts. While cataract surgery is the most frequently performed intraocular operation, there is a nearly 100% incidence of capsular scarring post-surgery in dogs. Dr. Stone's research, funded by the AKC Canine Health Foundation, focuses on developing new techniques to decrease this occurrence, and in turn improving the lives of dogs. At the Ohio State Breeders' Symposium jointly sponsored by the American Kennel Club and the AKC Canine Health Foundation, Dr. Stone discusses her research and the progress made thus far.
