Abstract

These procedures described for the dog ERG were approved at the 1st European Conference on Veterinary Visual Electrophysiology in Vienna, Austria, May 30, 2000. Dr. Narfström was Chair of the Committee for a Harmonized ERG Protocol, appointed by the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmology (ECVO), and Dr. Ofri was secretary. The other coauthors are committee members. Guidelines for ERG procedures in other animal species for clinical and laboratory studies are planned for in the future and the present guidelines are planned to be revised on a biannual basis. A brief report of the recommended procedures is available in the Conference Proceedings book.
