Dr. Low with Suzy Q
Little Suzy Q was painful in both eyes and had gone blind. Eventually she had to have both eyes removed. She is now a very happy, pain free little girl, and she looks great!
Dr. Low and Tamara
Tamara had a badly infected corneal ulcer. After months of diligent treatment from her fantastic caretakers, the ulcer healed and Tamara is visual and comfortable.
