Wilson, who spent a lot of time with Leo during his week at the Animal Health Center, found it very rewarding to be a part of his recovery, and smiles just talking about the dog.
“He is just a good ‘ole labrador with a big smile, great manners, and he never gave us any trouble during treatments,” Wilson said. “Being able to see a very sick patient go to surgery, wake up happy, recover without complications, and then go home acting five years younger is one of the most rewarding things I have experienced in vet school thus far.”
Cobb and Kee both agreed Leo was acting like a puppy again, and were impressed with how popular he was with Animal Health Center staff—before they left, Leo had to do a lap around the building, to say goodbye to everyone who had helped him heal after his surgery.
“He is acting like he is back to normal and wants to go run around and play and have fun, but we are still waiting on his chest to fully heal, so he stuck taking it easy for a few more weeks,” Cobb said. “I really can't thank Madison and Dr. Swanson and the rest of the staff enough for taking care of him and letting him love on them.”
