Eye Certification Registry (ECR)
The new ECR is a joint effort between the OFA and the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO). At the request of an owner, breeder, or veterinarian, we are available to perform this screening eye examination. In addition Dr. McCallum is available to breed organizations for ECR clinics.
Pharmaceutical or Basic Science Research
Dr. McCallum is available for consultation for preclinical drug development. Regulatory requirements dictate drug companies adhere to good laboratory practices (GLP) and/or International Organization for Standardization (ISO) guidelines for conducting preclinical drug development. Veterinary ophthalmologists are in a unique position to provide oversight, guidance and evaluation for such studies.
