Dr. Miller and Angel will talk about our word of the week which is Nystagmus, which is a vision condition in which the eyes make repetitive, uncontrolled movements. These movements often result in reduced vision and depth perception and can affect balance and coordination.

Dr. Miller shares a story about Hawks and how a toy poodle was picked up by one and carried 4 blocks before it dropped her. Luckily she only suffered a broken bone and made a full recovery. This leads us to talk about how Hawks may try and pick up smaller pets and be extra vigilant when letting your small breed dogs outside.
