11th Annual ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam Event

The ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam Event is in full swing! Total registration was just over 7,625 animals, a new record! Our amazing membership broke another record in that 305 of you volunteered to participate in the program, YOU ARE AMAZING! On the tail of the 10thanniversary event and a VIC Innovation Award win, this year is shaping up to be another incredible year for your program. Please remember that we have resources for you available on the website, including the 2018 Exam Form and marketing materials.

This year, based on a random drawing, the ACVO is sponsoring five clinics to have a professional photographer photograph the event, thank you for all those who entered the drawing. We still want to see all your pictures! Please send your photos to us during the event this month so we can post the pic, dog’s name, your name and link to your clinic.

We will be sharing photos from the event for the next couple of months on our social media so make sure you are following us on Facebook and NEW this year, Instagram! If your clinic has an Instagram account, use the #ACVOeyeexam when posting your pictures and be sure to follow ACVOofficial.

The program will be at AVMA in July again this year, so if you are planning on attending, drop by our booth 1916 to say hi and see what amazing things you are doing for Service and Working Animals across the country. Thank you to all those who have selflessly donated their time, staff and resources to this program and to Stokes Pharmacy and our Bronze sponsors  (Animal Necessity, an-vision, Eye Care for Animals [corporate],  Optigen, Sontec Instruments, and Welch Allyn ) for generously sponsor of the event.
