The Organizations and Associations related to Japanese Veterinary Medicine.

What is an "Eyemate"? Why aren't they called "guide-dogs"? Read below to find out what is special about these dogs and what our philosophy is. Let's start by talking about the United States.

But in the United States, there are several terms such as "Seeing Eye Dog", "guide dog", and "leader dog" that are used in describing dogs related to the blind. If you have a dictionary on hand, try looking up the term "Seeing Eye".
