Fetch this freebie to keep our four-legged citizens looking good on the job: a no-cost service-dog eye exam. Registration for the fourth annual ACVO/Merial National Service Dog Eye Exam Event runs April 1 through April 29. The complimentary checkups begin May 1.

Participating veterinary ophthalmologists will give the once-over to the peepers of thousands of guide dogs, detection dogs, rescue dogs and other qualified assistance canines throughout the 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico. Cats and horses are welcome, too, if they work in an official service capacity.
