Keeping your eye in

A seminar in companion animal ophthalmology

Feline herpes virus infections are a common cause of eye problems in the cat. Affected cats exhibit a wide range of clinical signs with some even showing no clinical signs! There are many diagnostic tests available, but how do you select the most appropriate one? Dr Izak Venter will present a seminar on feline herpes virus infections and glaucoma in the dog and cat, where he will cover the basics of the disease and then present treatment options, including the latest, cutting edge developments.

Speaker: Dr Izak Venter

Dr Izak Venter graduated as a veterinarian from the Onderstepoort Veterinary Faculty, Pretoria University (South Africa). Having a special interest in ophthalmology, Dr Venter obtained his M.Med.Vet (Ophth) degree and qualified as a Veterinary Specialist Practitioner (Ophthalmology) in South Africa. In 1996, he co-founded the Johannesburg and Cape Animal Eye Hospitals, a referral veterinary practice dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of animal eye disease. Whilst dogs, cats and horses comprise the majority of his patients, Dr Venter has great expertise in treating several other species including, birds, cheetahs, elephants, lions, rhinos, snakes, and tigers. Dr Venter lectures at the Onderstepoort Veterinary Faculty, Pretoria University, and trains undergraduate and postgraduate veterinary students. Dr Venter and his colleagues have been coming to Wanchai Animal Hospital two to three times a year for the last fifteen years to see referral eye cases.

When Dr Venter is not seeing eye cases, he is busy playing the guitar or cooking up a storm in the kitchen!
