Free service dog eye exams in May – but you have to register in advance by April 30, 2013.

This is in the nature of a public service announcement, to let you know that the 6th annual ACVO National Service Dog Eye Exam event in May 2013 provides a free screening eye exam to service animals including guide dogs. You have to register by April 30 at the ACVO National Service Dog Eye Exam link above by April 30.

The national program includes guide dogs, hearing dogs, dogs assisting people with disabilities other than blindness, detection dogs, police dogs, search and rescue dogs, and formally trained and certified therapy dogs. Dogs need to have appropriate certification and/or training paperwork to qualify for the program, so check out all the details at the link.

Albuquerque is a participating city, and Santa Fe is too, although I don’t see details yet on exactly which veterinary ophthalmologists are offering the free examinations. But again – you need to register first for the ACVO National Service Dog Eye Exam by Tuesday April 30, where you’ll find all the details on how the program works and who is eligible.

50% Off Dog and Cat Exams

Comments Off on 50% Off Dog and Cat Exams

No, they aren’t making dogs and cats sit for the GRE (yet), but if you have a pooch or a puss, you can get them a full health exam at 50% off. If you missed our previous post on this, you’ve still got to the end of December to take advantage of the discount.

ABQ PetCare is offering the half price health exam for dogs and cats to new patients on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  The full exam gives pets what sounds like a pretty thorough going-over to me, including a comprehensive health check, a heart worm test, nail trim, a parasite check, a dose of Frontline (protects against fleas and ticks) and a dose of Hart Gard.

The exam usually costs $175, which makes it $ 87.50 during the ABQ PetCare discount promotion on Wednesdays and Thursdays.  I don’t see the offer info at their website (it was there, maybe it still is somewhere) but in an email to us ABQ PetCare stated the offer runs through to the end of 2011.  Make an appointment at (505) 299-VETS

ABQ PetCare is located at 9032 Montgomery Boulevard NE.
