National Service Dog Oral Health Exam
The AVDC Service Dog Oral Health program will provide free oral health screening to Service Dog groups including seeing eye dogs, hearing dogs, handicapped assistance dogs, detection dogs, search and rescue dogs and for certified therapy dogs (through the Delta Society or similar). Dogs must be active working dogs that are certified by an organization or are currently enrolled in a formal training program. The certifying agency must be regional or local. Essentially, the dogs need to have some form of certification and/or training paperwork from an agency to qualify for this program.
While we would like to offer complimentary oral exams to all dogs performing assistance to their owners/handlers, this program is limited to the groups listed above. There are limited appointments available to examine these animals therefore a specific group has been defined. Registration for the AVDC Service Dog Oral Health Exam is NOW OPEN.
Please register by June 15, 2014. This is especially helpful for veterans who have a certified service dog and are on a limited budget who would like to get their service dog checked out. Register Here or to find a participating dentist. For further details go to National Service Dog Oral Health Exam
