Service Dogs Get FREE Health Screening

MedVet Medical & Cancer Centers for Pets is providing complimentary eye exams the entire month of May to service dogs during the 10th Annual ACVO®/StokesRx™ National Service Dog Eye Exam Event.

Four of MedVet’s medical centers are providing these screenings – Columbus, Cincinnati, and Dayton, Ohio plus Lexington, Kentucky. These screenings are by appointment only. Over 52,000 service animals throughout the U.S. and Canada have been examined since the program launched. There were approximately 7,400 dogs examined in 2016 and almost 60% of those were service animals, with the remainder being therapy animals. More than 150 of those service dogs are examined at MedVet each year.


MedVet’s three board-certified ophthalmologists provide free eye exams the entire month of May to service dogs who dedicate their lives to serving the public. This includes search and rescue dogs, detection dogs, guide dogs, hearing dogs, therapy dogs, police dogs, and handicapped assistance dogs.

“It’s an honor to give back to dogs that help people every day,” says Dr. Terah Webb, the Ophthalmologist at MedVet Columbus. “Whether it’s a search and rescue dog helping a community or a disabled person’s life-line for independence, I love to interact with these dogs. It’s rewarding to detect a potential problem early that may limit their service or their comfort if left untreated.”

In addition to weekday exams the entire month of May, MedVet Columbus & Cincinnati will also be holding a special screening event to facilitate multiple specialty exams to service dogs. The events will be held on Sunday, May 7th at MedVet Columbus and on Sunday, May 21st at MedVet Cincinnati. On this day, service dogs will receive more than just an eye exam from the ophthalmology department. Their appointment will include being examined by doctors from MedVet’s other specialty departments and will include a general physical exam. These screenings are by appointment only.

Eye screenings are held the entire month of May at these four MedVet locations:
Cincinnati, OH (513) 561-0069
Columbus, OH (614) 846-5800
Dayton, OH (937) 293-2714
Lexington, KY (859) 276-2505
