Canine health clinic

Belquest Kennels and Cattery will sponsor an all-breed canine eye and heart clinic from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 25.

Ophthalmology services will be provided by Dr. Nancy M. Bromberg and cardiac screening will be performed by Dr. Eugene E. Musselman. Both are board certified in their fields and will perform the examinations for the purpose of CERF (eye) and OFA (heart) registration.

Having a dog's eyes and heart examined is important to the health, longevity and quality of life of a pet.

Some breeds are more prone to eye and heart diseases than others, so early diagnosis is crucial.

Take the dog's AKC registration name, number and date of birth. Microchipping and tattooing will be offered. These methods of identification are widely used to identify lost pets and to reunite them with their owners.

The following costs apply: eye clinic, $25; heart clinic, $30; microchipping, $20; tattooing, $10. Reservations are required for all clinics.

The kennel is at 18745 Penn Shop Road in Mount Airy.

Information: 301-831-7507, 410-795-8395 or e-mail

Mount Airy Senior Center, 703 Ridge Ave., is looking for volunteers to help serve lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday. Some cleaning is required as well.
