Did you know service animals are not just dogs? Dogs, cats, dolphins, miniature horses, monkeys, ducks, ferrets, and parrots have all been trained to perform specific duties of a service animal, though the type of animal that may be registered as a “service animal” may vary depending on legal definitions.
In the USA, the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists hosts an annual event to support the service dogs by donating their time to provide eye exams to service dogs in the US and Canada during the month of May.
