Serving service animals for free
March 17, 2014, 05:00 AM

TOM JUNG/Daily Journal

Free service animal eye examinations in May. Guide dogs, handicapped assistance animals, detection dogs, therapy animals, and search and rescue dogs selflessly serve people. To honor these animals and their work, the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) has launched its 7th Annual ACVO/Merial National Service Animal Eye Exam Event to screen service animals who dedicate their lives to helping the public. More than 250 board certified veterinary ophthalmologists throughout the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico will donate their time and resources during the month of May to provide free, sight-saving eye exams to thousands of eligible service animals. Registration for service animal owners and handlers runs from April 1 - 30 at www.ACVOeyeexam.org. Nearly 22,000 service animals have been helped since this program’s inception in 2008. Above, Dr. Albert Mughannam relaxes with Warrior Canine Connection service dogs Sandy and Ford at the conclusion of an examination in May 2013 at Veterinary Vision in San Carlos.
