Dear Friends and Colleagues,
During the Month of May, I am pleased to offer complementary eye examinations for all Service Animals at Saint Francis Veterinary Center of South Jersey.
The National Service Eye Exam program is a philanthropic effort generously provided to the public by the board certified Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists, with the support of sponsor Merial. With this program, we aim to help prevent and/or identify problems that may affect Service Animal’s sight.
Registration will be open during the Month of April via the National Service Dog Eye Exam program website: www.acvoeyeexam.org. I encourage you to make a note in your calendar to make an appointment once registration begins in a few short weeks.
Over 15,000 Service Animals have received these free screening exams over the past five years, and the Department of Ophthalmology at Saint Francis is very pleased to participate in 2013.
I invite you to learn more at www.saintfrancis.org/ServiceAnimals. It would be my pleasure to assist our region’s service men, woman and Service Animals via this program.
Robert L. Peiffer, DVM, PhD, DACVO
Chief of Ophthalmology
