ACVO Service Dog Eye Exams with Dr Nancy Bromberg and Eric Darling | The Real Dr. Doolittle Show | Animal Talk | Podcast # 104

Guide dogs, detection dogs, search and rescue dogs, therapy dogs and dogs assisting people with disabilities selflessly serve the public. To honor these animals and their work, the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) is launching the 6th Annual ACVO®/Merial® National Service Dog Eye Exam Event to provide free, sight-saving eye exams to service animals during the month of May. More than 250 board certified veterinary ophthalmologists throughout the U.S., as well as Canada and Puerto Rico, are donating their time and resources to screen thousands of eligible service animals. Service animal applicants must register during April for the event, which has provided free exams to more than 16,000 services animals since its launch in 2008.

For instance, Ben is a black American Field Labrador who can climb a three story ladder, unassisted. Ben's eyesight is vital to his job. He is a search and rescue dog from Ventura, CA that can be called upon at any time to rescue someone who is alive, during a disaster. Ben's handler, Eric Darling, has brought Ben to participate in the ACVO®/Merial® National Service Dog Eye Exam Event for two years in a row. Eric and Dr. Nancy Bromberg, a board certified veterinary ophthalmologist, are here to talk about this exciting and important event.
