The Cincinnati Veterinary Medical Association (CVMA) is again teaming with UC Blue Ash College to host the 25th Annual Canine Corps Health Clinic.

The event will be held on Sunday, December 2, 2018, from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in the Veterinary Technology building on the UC Blue Ash College campus (9555 Plainfield Road in Blue Ash).

Local specialists in orthopedics, hearing, vision, dentistry, and skin health will thoroughly evaluate the dogs. The canines will also receive a cardiac ultrasound and an abdominal ultrasound as screening tests. IDEXX Laboratories is donating all of the lab services for the event. The total value for all these services and examinations approaches $1,500 per dog. Read More
