The Veterinary Department at GDA is here to assist and coordinate vet care for our breeding dogs/puppies/dogs in training and working guides. We have two veterinarians who are available by appointment to do routine examinations, treatments and surgeries here at our facility. Referral care by veterinary specialists in orthopedics, internal medicine, dermatology, surgery and opthamology is also arranged through the vet department.
