Thank you so much for providing annual eye exams for service and working animals. This is truly a wonderful service. This is the third year for my therapy dogs, Stanton and Yolli. They have minor eye issues that are not serious at this time, but it is comforting to have these exams to monitor them. I'm really proud of these wonderful dogs and am so fortunate to be able to do the therapy visits with them. Stanton (left) is 10 and Yolli (right) is 8. The staff at Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners in Overland Park, Kansas do a great job.

I want to extend a huge Thank You to Dr. Amy Hunkeler and Mandi Holsten, Eye Care for Animals, for examining the FEMA Urban Search & Rescue Dogs on Missouri Task Force 1.And many thanks to Boone County Fire Protection District Office/Missouri Task Force 1 Headquarters in Columbia, MO.  Dr. Hunkeler traveled from Kansas City to Columbia (4hrs roundtrip) to check the dogs!

I would like to thank Dr. Carrie Breaux and her staff at WestVet Animal Emergency & Specialty Center for donating their time and skills to participate in the ACVO National Service Animal Eye Exam Event. They took very good care of us and gave Sage a clean bill of health. THANK YOU!

Thank you for this program. We saw Dr. Andras Komaromy at Michigan State University. He was amazing! I have a three year old chocolate Labrador retriever named Keela. We are a human trailing K-9 Search and Rescue Team with the Clinton County Sheriff's Office (Michigan). Thank you again!

Dear ACVO,
Thank you for the appointment for my Service and therapy dog Panther. Dr. Susan Carcastro was very gentle, professional and warm. Panther was very cooperative and our visit was positive. I wish to thank you for this opportunity for my dog and to use it to educate my Therapy Dog Foundation Inc. members about an important part of their health care. I thank you, Dr. Susan Carcastro and all who made this program available. I have always had my dogs CERF-ed over decades. My financial status has changed and I am no longer able to afford this necessity. But Panther and I are still making our 4 visits a week for therapy.

Elsa did well at her ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam. We went to Eye Care For Animals San Diego and saw Dr Francesca Venturi. Everyone at the office was very nice and made Elsa feel comfortable. And her eyes checked out and her vision is great This is a wonderful program and we are very appreciative of it! We'll be back next year.


Dr. Bromberg with Sirius. He was a search and rescue dog, but developed spine issues so now he is in a reading program. Way to go Sirius!

Thank you Dr. Nancy Bromberg for your support of the program.

Hello, my name is Barbara and I had the privilege of having my seizure alert Service Dog, Lizzy, eyes examined. I was lost for words upon meeting your kind representative. I have to tell you how very much I appreciate your kindness for the national service dog eye exam. Lizzy means so much to me, without her my feeling of independence would be gone. She not only alerts me to an oncoming seizure but is also very faithful and loving. You have done such a generous thing to all service dogs. I will always be very grateful to your company.

Charlie and I would like to thank you for offering the free exams for service dogs. Charlie is my diabetic alert
dog and is also very active in a variety of other things. I do my best to make sure he is healthy and his mind is
always working. This eye exam is extremely helpful. He is going to be 6 this year and I was really glad to find
out his eyes are perfect.
