MedVet is providing complimentary eye exams the entire month of May to service dogs during the 11th Annual ACVO®/StokesRx™ National Service Dog Eye Exam Event. Three of MedVet’s medical centers are providing these screenings: Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton, Ohio. These screenings are by appointment only. Nearly 60,000 service and working animals have received free screening eye exams since the program began, including approximately 7,500 last year. More than 150 of those service dogs are examined at MedVet each year.
MedVet’s two board-certified ophthalmologists provide free eye exams the entire month of May to service dogs who dedicate their lives to serving the public. This includes search and rescue dogs, detection dogs, guide dogs, hearing dogs, therapy dogs, police dogs, and handicapped assistance dogs. “We are excited that we can give back to the community and provide eye care to the service dogs whose lives are dedicated to serving the public,” says Dr. Vanessa Kuonen Cavens, the Ophthalmologist at MedVet Cincinnati.
In addition to weekday exams the entire month of May, MedVet will also be holding a special screening event to facilitate multiple specialty exams to service dogs. The events will be held on Sunday, May 20th at MedVet Columbus and MedVet Cincinnati. On this day, service dogs will receive more than just an eye exam from the ophthalmology department. Their appointment will include being examined by doctors from MedVet’s other specialty departments and will include a general physical exam. These screenings are by appointment only.
Eye screenings are held the entire month of May at MedVet Cincinnati (513.561.0069), MedVet Columbus (614.431.4404), and MedVet Dayton (937.293.2714). MedVet is joining around 300 board-certified veterinary ophthalmologists across the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico to provide free sight saving eye exams to improve the health and avert potential diseases for thousands of service animals.
MedVet is proud to participate in this philanthropic event.
