Free K-9 Eye Exams PDF Print E-mail

Dear National Narcotic Detector Dog Association,

The American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists would like invite your associations' service animals to receive a complimentary eye screening examination by a board certified ophthalmologist in their area, during the month of May 2014.  Please consider helping your association and colleagues to receive this no-cost, no-strings-attached free eye examination for their qualifying service animals. This free eye screening is important to detect abnormalities. The aim is to identify problems early in service animals.

The ACVO has brought this event to the public for six consecutive years. The program is fully endorsed by the American Veterinary Medical Association and has been supported by hundreds of related non-profit organizations over the yearsIn the past six years our veterinary ophthalmologists have donated over 22,000 examinations to deserving service animals across the USA, Canada and Puerto Rico. Our goal is to increase the number of examinations each year.

Much more information is located at www.acvoeyeexam.org of "like" acvo service animal event on facebook.
