HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) - A South Florida animal hospital has opened its doors to provide canine eye exams, Sunday.

VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital and Animal Eye Guys of South Florida came together to provide free eye exams for service dogs.

The National Service Dog Eye Exam program aims to give back to animals that give so much to the community. “I think the important thing is, we’re dealing with dogs that are out working for people — the police dogs, the service dogs, the therapy dogs,” said Dr. Rob Swinger, a veterinary ophthalmologist. “They’re going to the courts and working with children. They’re going to the nursing home and working with adults, hospitals with the sick.”

The program, now in its ninth year, offers free eye exams for service and therapy animals during the month of May.
