Thousands of service dogs to receive free eye exams in the U.S. and Canada

Detection dogs, search-and-rescue dogs, and other service dogs selflessly serve the public. So, for the month of May 2010, the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) is launching the 3rd annual ACVO/Merial National Service Dog Eye Exam Event to help serve these dogs. More than 150 board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists in the U.S. and Canada will provide free sight-saving eye exams to thousands of service dogs. To qualify, dogs must be active “working dogs” that were certified by a formal training program or organization, or currently enrolled in a formal training program. Registration begins April 1.
