Local Veterinarians holding 19th Annual Canine Corps Clinic in Blue Ash | News
BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Veterinary Medical Association are hosting their annual Canine Corps Health Clinic at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash Campus.
This is the 19th year for this event that will take place at Veterinary Technology Department from 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Local veterinarians specializing in surgery, internal medicine, audiology, ophthalmology, dermatology, and dentistry will perform physical exams and diagnostics in their respective fields on local police dogs and search and rescue dogs from across the greater Cincinnati region.
The dogs will also receive general physical exam and bloodwork screening, generously donated by Idexx Laboratories. Students from the University of Cincinnati Veterinary Technology program will be on hand to assist in these exams and University of Cincinnati is generously providing the space to conduct the event.
“CVMA’s members recognize and appreciate the invaluable service that these dogs provide in helping to protect and serve greater Cincinnati residents. We are pleased to provide a means for police and search and rescue personnel to ensure the health of their canine partners in this time of very tight law enforcement budgets,” said Dr. Bill Bean, President of the CVMA.
The comprehensive exam, which has a value of over $1000 per dog, is provided at no charge to local law enforcement and then shared with the dogs’ regular veterinarian to ensure proper follow up can be done.
