More Than 1,500 Service Dogs Receive Free Sight Saving Eye Exams
Date:5/20/2009

ACVO®/Merial® National Service Dog Eye Exam event is highly successful in pairing veterinary ophthalmologists with service dogs throughout the U.S. and Canada

Meridian, ID (Vocus) May 20, 2009 -- She has been blind for 13 years. So, when Lisa Davidson, of Warminster, PA found out about the ACVO/Merial National Service Dog Eye Exam event, she was elated. She completely relies on her guide dog, Eagle for assistance. "I think it's great these animals are being represented because they have a very special job to do," says Ms. Davidson. "Eagle has opened many doors for me, to allow me to become independent. It's so important that his eyes are working."

And, that's exactly the reason behind the event. Stacee Daniel, executive director of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) says, "If we can assist more dogs, then the dogs can better assist people." The effort, which took place the week of May 4th, 2009 brought together more than 150 board certified veterinary ophthalmologists across the U.S. and Canada to provide free sight-saving eye exams to more than 1,500 dogs. "This event was such a success due to the outstanding support of our volunteer ophthalmologists, our sponsors and the service dog community," adds Ms. Daniel. "All were instrumental in helping these dogs."

Lisa Davidson took Eagle to the Center for Animal Referral and Emergency Services in Langhorne, PA
