This week in our Asthma SuperStars series, we got to sit down with swim legend Gary Hall, Sr. to talk about why so many asthmatic kids thrive in the water, his experience working with swimmers with asthma, what parents should think about when they send their children to camp for the first time, and his advice for parents and kids who may be starting an exercise program.
Gary Hall, Sr. has held 10 world records, was named World Swimmer of the Year twice, and as Captain of the Indiana University swim team, led it to its 6th straight NCAA championship. He still holds the distinction of being the only swimmer chosen to carry the flag for the United States at the Olympic Opening ceremonies.
After earning his medical degree and practicing as an ophthalmologist for many years, Gary Hall, Sr., Gary has since retired as a physician to coach and lead The Race Club in Florida, a renowned swimming club known for training Olympic Games swimmers with its swimming training program that is focused on specific swimming techniques, located in Islamorada, Florida.

Does your pet have dry eye? According to dvm360 Magazine , dry eye is a condition in which the tear production is decreased or absent. Common clinical signs associated with this disease are:
Squinting or holding the eye completely closed
A thick, sticky discharge that is often yellowish or greenish in color
Corneal cloudiness creating a dull sheen to the eye(s)
The superficial layers of the eye, including the cornea and conjunctiva, as well as the eyelids depend on tears for nutrition and protection. Without tears, these structures are highly susceptible to disease and trauma.
Some breeds of dogs, such as the American Cocker Spaniel, Miniature Schnauzer, Poodle, Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Pug, Westhighland White Terrier, and English Bulldog are predisposed to this disease due to genetic factors. This clinical disease is also seen in felines (i.e. Persians). The causes of dry eye include immune-mediated, congenital, infectious (canine distemper virus), drug-induced (sulfa antibiotics, Etogesic, topical atropine), surgery-induced (removal of the tear gland of the nictitans) and neurogenic. A significant amount of canine cases tend to be immune-mediated and maintenance treatment is required for the life of the pet. Parotid duct transposition surgery can be considered if medical treatment fails to significantly increase the tear production.
Our goals in the medical therapy of your pet are to: 1) Improve tear function, 2) prevent ocular disease and 3) improve patient comfort. Client compliance and follow-up visits are important in evaluating your pet’s response to the medical therapy.
