-- America's VetDogs and the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind announced a partnership with Novartis Animal Health US, which is providing a one-year supply of its Sentinel Flavor Tabs, a broad-spectrum preventive against five major parasites, for 1,100 canine graduates, dogs in training and puppies of both organizations.

America's VetDogs trains and provides guide dogs free of charge to service veterans who are blind or visually impaired and service dogs for veterans with other disabilities. The Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind provides free guide dogs to people who are blind and seek improved mobility and independence.

"We want to ensure that the people we serve enjoy a long, healthy partnership with their guide or service dog, and Novartis is helping us keep these dogs healthy by supplying their premier product," says Wells Jones, CEO of both service organizations.

Sentinel Flavor Tabs protect against heartworm, roundworm, hookworm, whipworm and fleas in one monthly dose.

Novartis says it is making the donation in recognition and gratitude for the sacrifices of U.S. servicemen and servicewomen.
