Eye Clinic

Dr. Sheryl Krohne( & Onyx)

Each Saturday after our Friday Specialty Show, we sponsor a health clinic featuring a Veterinary Ophthmalogist and a Veterinary Cardiologist.  

Dr Maran of Olympic Veteirnary Cardiology said 49 dogs were processed in 2018.  We charged $45 for ascultation and $200 for an echocardiogram.

81 dogs went through the eye clinic in 2018 for Dr. Sheryl Krohne with an eye exam price of $28, a new record!

Thank you to all our workers and participants!  Both Doctors were thrilled with their responses.  Dr Krohne said the 2018 eye clinic was the best attended and most organized.
