Free Eye Screenings For Service Dogs
They're always watching to make sure their owners are okay. Today University of Florida Veterinarians checked to see if their eyes were healthy.
UF Vets at the Small Animal Hospital offered free eye screenings for service dogs as part of an annual event. Only active working service dogs or those currently enrolled in a formal training program were welcome. That included guide dogs, rescue dogs, and dogs assisting owners with disabilities.
Vets say regular screenings can detect early problems.
"It's the very least that we can do to keep to help them, to keep them healthy, and recognize problems early that might impair their ability to do their jobs," Caryn Plummer (Veterinary Ophthalmologist) said.
UF vets also conducted free heart examinations, which consisted of a brief physical exam, including listening to each dog's heartbeat.
