Ophthalmology services at Peak are provided by Vermont Veterinary Eye Care

Register your service animal in the month of April for a free eye exam with our ophthalmology department in the month of May.

Guide dogs, handicapped assistance animals, detection dogs, therapy animals, and search and rescue dogs selflessly serve the public. To honor these animals and their work, the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) is launching the annual ACVO/STOKESRx National Service Animal Eye Exam Event in the month of May, to screen service animals who dedicate their lives to serving the public.
