    Hello Dog Lovers!

    I wanted to let you know we are hosting an all breed Health Clinic and
    OptiGen 20/20 clinic here at Northwest Veterinary Hospital. We have set aside an
    afternoon to offer special discounts for our local breeders to let them know
    we appreciate their business. There are multiple services being offered so
    please read on:

    July 25th from 1 pm to 5 pm we will be offering the following health and
    reproduction based services:

    1. OptiGen blood sample collection for genetic testing for all breeds.
    ($5.00 per blood draw, which will also cover shipping of the sample). For a list
    of tests available that are specific to your breed, please visit OptiGen's
    website: _http://optigen.com_ (http://optigen.com/) If you fill out the
    online application you will receive 25 % off the normal testing price. You will
    need to fill out the online application between July 11 and July 25 and the
