National Service Dog Eye Exam Event

Besides serving as our loyal companions, dogs perform a number of other tasks as well, including bomb detection, search and rescue operations, and guiding the visually impaired. To help give back to these dogs that give so much to us, the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists—or ACVO—will be offering free vision screenings to service dogs during the ACVO National Service Dog Eye Exam Event, which has expanded this year to include the entire month of May. In this podcast, Dr. Brady Beale, a veterinary ophthalmologist at the Veterinary Referral Center in Malvern, Pa.. talks about the event and the importance of veterinary eye exams.
